Qué harás

We organize an olive oil outdoor tasting experience, under the shade of olive trees in Amari Valley, in the hart of the monumental olive groove of 2000 years old. We start, by visiting the Byzantine Church of 13th century, that is in the middle of the olive groove. We discover the history, culture and the Cretan civilization of olive oil in the Greek Religions during the centuries. We proceed with the olive oil tasting of 4 different olive oils. Our tasting table is just under the shade of olive trees... During the tasting we offer pairing food with more types of olive oil. Tips of how we taste, preserve, choose, cook and frie olive oil are available. We walk around the peaceful olive groove like a walk in the holy Gethsemane Garden, full of myths, flavors, aromas of olive oils, from Minoan civilization till today. The beauty of the landscape, makes our experience a lasting memory. In case of unsuitable weather conditions, the tasting could be held in a tasting room.

My mother land Crete, is produces during centuries, in the same simply way, the liquid gold called olive oil. During the last 5 years, I started my education on olive oil quality, flavor, aroma, through seminars and a lot of tasting session that became my passion. I used to live in France for my studies and then in Athens, working as economist in European projects. The last 10 years I moved in Crete, where I found the simply way of living, the Cretan hospitality, the paridise on earth and my husband... Actually, I am working for the Region of Crete in Agrofood sector. I felt in love with Cretan landscape, olive oil and olive trees.

Dónde estarás

Our experience is organized in Amari Valley, 30 km from Rethymno city, near Assomatos Monastry. The venue is one of the biggest monumental olive grove in Mediterranean area. We meet olive trees, over 2000 years old. The trees looks like sculptures, cultivated during 10 generations now. The local variety Hondroelia risks to disappear, but the trees that still stands around the landscape and make the olive groove be like Gesthman garden of our days.
