Astrikas Estate, Kolymbari, Crete, Kolimvari 730 06, Greece +(30) 28240 23281
Millions of olive trees thrive in the Crete’s rugged mountains and valleys—and apparently, they always have: archaeological records show that the area has been home to olive oil production since the Minoan period around 3500 BC. And still today, the Cretan diet—renowned the world over for its healthiness—is drenched in olive oil. For insight into the old ways of producing this “liquid gold” and a taste of some of the finest the island has to offer, make your way to Biolea, a traditional olive estate that still mills and crushes their harvest manually and offers informative and entertaining tours in a jaw-dropping setting.
