All about the trip
This 4 hour guided olive oil tour begins at the magnificent 13th century castle of Androusa. Located up on a hill, the views across the rustic countryside and Messinian olive groves are quite simply stunning.
Here at the castle, we will show you how the traditional harvesting of the perennial olive trees takes place. The local olive mill here has been producing fresh olive oil for over a century. The process itself is fascinating and you will be able to try the freshest olive oil you have ever tasted as it comes straight off the production line.
We then listen to a mini-lecture on the different varieties of olives and olive oils from a member of the certified olive oil panel. We will also do some olive oil and food pairing in at least 4 different taste combinations to whet your appetite.
By now you should be hungry, so together we will enjoy a traditional Greek meal. We will enjoy many local delicacies such aslalagia, smoked ham, kalamata olives, tzatziki, feta cheese, saganaki cheese, olive paste, salad, hot soup, smoked sausage, a local dessert of 'diples and galopita', and of course, local wines and ouzo.
