Imposing green mountains cascading to infinite blue sea is one of the reasons Peloponnese is one of Greece’s favorite destinations. The other of course is the exceptional local cuisine. As one of Europe’s leading producers of olive oil, Messinian culture thrives on the harvesting and production of olive oil. A tasting session in the region can unlock the secrets of hidden nutrients and the unique flavors that are essential to local dishes. A secluded picnic beneath an olive tree is an ideal locatino to discover the majesty of nature and greatness of Messinian flavors.
