Et in arcadia ego...

Here’s an extra virgin olive oil I first tasted two weeks ago in the beautiful little walled town of Monemvasia (more about that later), on the Peloponnesus not far from Sparta. Olives are the main source of income for most farmers in this part of Lakonia and have been a staple there for millennia. The countryside’s scattered with modern olive presses and many groves are organically farmed. The varieties of olives are mainly Koroneiki and Athinolia. This blend’s slightly fruity and very good.
