Olive oil

The cultivation of olives is dating since ancient times, in the broader northeastern Peloponnese and the islands of the Saronic Gulf. Indicative is the reference made by ancient traveler Pausanias. Today the most important olive variety which is grown is “Kothreiki – Manaki”. This variety of olive oil is considered one of Greece’s best, in terms of color and flavor characteristics. It is golden yellow, sweet, with no “spark” that burns the palate and can be consumed immediately after the extraction. Admittedly, this olive oil does not pass unnoticed.
