Olive Oil Tasting

Live the ultimate experience in our historic olive grove which dates back to 1763. The Old Olive Mill at Kapsaliana Village Hotel used to belong to the historic Arkadi Monastery, was a ‘source of life’ for more than 200 years and the reason Kapsaliana village was built.
During your olive oil tasting session, you will be guided through the magic ‘Pitharia’ (giant
ceramic pots filled with oil in the ancient times) room in the ‘monastic’ area of our museum. The seminar allows you to get a deeper insight into olive oil history, production and practices and unravel how this oily treasure ends up in a bottle. Learn to appreciate the aromas of olive oil, such as the smell of fresh-cut grass, cinnamon and even tropical fruits.
