Greek cuisine is renowned on a global scale for its rich taste and health benefits, and is a part of the also popular Mediterranean diet. Many of the more popular Greek products have their origins in our town, Kalamata, or our district, Messenia, extra virgin olive oil perhaps being the best example of this.
Greek olive oil is some of the highest quality olive oil in the world, and most of it comes from Messenia. In addition, wine is a necessary complement of Greek gastronomy and it’s a part of the tradition of Messenia. The combination of the long tradition of Messenia’s viticulture and its ideal climate conditions creates high quality vineyards, and, consequently, high quality wine.
