 Step into the world of Olive Oil!

Mediterranean Way of Life

Involves a set of skills, knowledge, rituals, symbols and traditions concerning crops, harvesting, fishing, animal husbandry, conservation, processing, cooking, and particularly the consumption of food. It has been proven that the Mediterranean Diet has many health benefits, such as lowering the risk of heart disease, cancer and other chronic diseases. Its core ingredient is Extra Virgin Olive Oil, whose high percentage of antioxidants promotes overall health.

In 2013, UNESCO inscribed the Mediterranean Diet on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

Olive Oil

Olive Oil, the “Golden Liquid” as Homer called it, has been part of Greek history since antiquity. It was regarded as a basic and irreplaceable nutritional component of Greeks, contributing to health, wellness, protection and longevity.

Since the first olive tree was planted in Crete around 3500 BC in the Early Minoan times, olive oil became synonymous with Greek nutrition throughout the centuries.

Today it is regarded as one of the best in the world because as a percentage of overall olive oil production, Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) reaches up to 80 percent. Greek EVOO’s have a very high nutritional value with a huge amount of polyphenols (antioxidants), a large variety of unique aromas and flavors due to many different varietals and very low acidity,  which make them of top quality.


Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food

 Hippocrates 460 – 370 BC 


Almost anywhere in Greece, you will behold acres and acres of olive trees where their silver-grey leaves shimmer in the golden sunlight.  More than 60 percent of cultivated land in Greece is given over to 132 million olive trees, placing the country third in the world (after Spain and Italy) in olive oil production but first in consumption. Greeks are by far the largest consumers of olive oil in the world. The average olive oil consumption of every single Greek is around 26 liters per person annually and even more than that on the island of Crete, which also boasts one of the world’s highest average life expectancies. Greece produces approximately 300.000 tons of olive oil per year, some 12 percent of the world’s annual output. 80 percent of this is top quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO).


Is the island of mythology, history and beauty. It is particularly famous for the cosmopolitan atmosphere, the exciting nightlife, the picturesque Cycladic architecture, the magnificent beaches and the neighboring sacred island of Delos. What is not so well known is its rich culture, its local customs and traditions. From folk dances to loom woven fabrics and from cheese & charcuterie making to traditional feasts. Feasts are a custom that dates back to ancient times, originating from the worship of Dionysus, the god of wine and fertility. Despite the modern lifestyle in Mykonos, local people devoutly preserve their folkways. Honoring the tradition of their country, Mykonians have made significant efforts lately to revive the cultivation of olive trees on their island.

If you deconstruct Greece you will, in the end, 
see an olive tree, a grapevine, and a boat remain.
That is, with as much, you reconstruct her.

Odysseas Elytis 


Nowadays the use of olive oil is no longer limited to areas where the olive tree is grown and it has come to represent quality cooking almost all over the globe, making olive oil one of the most fundamental ingredients in the culinary world. Extra Virgin Olive Oils have different aromas, colors, intensities, textures and flavors. This opens a wide range of possibilities at the moment of being creative in the kitchen and adding your own personal touch to your dishes. Choosing an olive oil to pair with food is similar to choosing a wine to go along with the meal. You want the flavors to complement each other, without overpowering any of the primary flavors. Yet sometimes a contrasting flavor is nice when tasting each ingredient separately.

Why join a Workshop

How many times have you sensed that the taste of olive oil in your salad is not good? You know that something is wrong, but you can't tell exactly what it is. Or even worse, how many times have you eaten defective olive oil without realizing it? It is an unpleasant reality that many people are so used to eating defective olive oils that they can't tell which oil is good and which is not. And what happens if some of those people are Chefs, Restaurant owners or Importers? Tasting workshops are a good way to become a more informed buyer, a more responsible consumer and a real olive oil connoisseur!


Joining one of our workshops will enrich you with valuable knowledge on everything olive oil.
