A delicious tribute to one of nature's most precious gifts, one that has been offered to the island of Naxos with abundance. Another important reflection of the local culture. Join us for a trip that begins at least 5.000 years ago, as the age of the oldest olive tree on Naxos suggests, back when olive oil production was a much more painstaking process and Naxians celebrated in appreciation of what nature so generously offered to them.
Provoke your senses in an idyllic olive oil tasting in the middle of a private olive grove, located in a quiet corner of a buzzing village. There you will meet the owner and passionate olive oil producer who will take you for a walk in his olive garden, answer all your questions about olive farming and teach you how to evaluate different types of olive oil.
Enjoy the chance to visit one of the island’s olive refineries and learn how technology evolved the same basic principles and helped raise the standards of olive oil extraction. Meet the young owner and learn about his vision to continue the family’s tradition in the most sustainable way.
Visit an old, traditional olive press and try to picture it in operation just a few decades ago. Step into the facility’s tasting room and discover how interesting olive oil can taste, by sampling a variety of goodies based on olive oil.
