Olive Oil Tasting

Become a connoisseur of liquid gold

The tradition of olive oil on the sunny island of Crete is so ancient that there are olive groves so old dotted around the island that they have been officially declared natural and historic monuments.

From bright salads to gorgeous pies and pastries, Olive oil is at the very heart of Cretan and Mediterranean cuisine – and for good reason too, thanks to its extraordinary antioxidant and nutritional properties. But it’s Crete itself that produces what is perhaps the best olive oil in the world, an extra-virgin amber liquid distilled using traditional methods that locals like to compare to liquid gold.
Whether you’re already an aficionado of olive oil or just curious, a curated olive oil tasting courtesy of the experts selected by the Domes of Elounda team will walk you through the surprising range of varieties of olives and olive oil this blessed land produces.
You’ll be tasting the purest fruit of Crete, leaving with newfound knowledge and understanding of what olive oil can do for your health and your cooking – and useful tips on how to select the best quality olive oil, too.
What’s more, you’ll also taste the difference top-quality olive oil makes as you sample bright flavours in a fantastic meal cooked just for you.
Become privy to the best-kept secrets of liquid gold.
