Kalamata Mediterranean Villas gives you the opportunity to experience the secrets of olive oil through a tasting experience that will be long remembered.
In collaboration with Mrs. Matoula Kouvatsou, owner and producer of Alpha to Omega award winning olive oil, we introduce you to the selection criteria of an extra virgin olive oil and its corresponding flavor combinations.
Olive oil is the only food in the world for which, except the chemical analyzes, is required to be categorized also according to its taste test. This means that it must be tested, by a certified olive oil panel through the tasting and smelling of the testers, in order to be categorized as extra virgin olive oil or inedible. Therefore, the low acidity of an olive oil is not the only criterion for a quality olive oil. The proven absence of taste defects in olive oil, such as rancid, muddy sediment, etc., which can only be diagnosed by testing, is required.
All the above will be presented to you directly from Alpha to Omega specialists, with emphasis on quality and taste. Choose the tasting experience that suits you and become an expert in olive oil.
