Participate in an Ancient Olive Grove Tasting Workshop and savor the taste of Delphi sacred lands!
Delphi valley hosts more than 1,5 million olive trees. Some of them have lived for more than a 1000 years! In these sacred lands archaeologists discovered remains from ancient wild olive trees, proof that an olive grove existed here since antiquity. The valley is nowadays protected and listed as a worldwide unique landscape by UNESCO.
When the wind blows and the sun goes down behind the trees, the silver shimmering of the olive leaves creates the impression of melting with the color of the sea. French travelers have called the valley “la mer des oliviers”, “The sea of Olive Trees”.
Highlights of Ancient Olive Grove Tasting Workshop:
- Learn how to identify olive oil of the premium quality and how to recognize main Greek varieties
- Find out secrets about how olive trees are cultivated in Delphi Valley
