Olive varieties of Mistra Estates

Mistra Estates Extra Virgin Olive Oil is produced from as many as ten varieties of olives from trees grafted from wild olive stock in the olive groves on Mt. Taygetos in Laconia. These include mainly the renowed varieties of athenolies and koutsourolies. The estates also include reftolies, matolies, mourtolies, stroghylolies, karydolies, trypiotikes and korakolies. Small quantities of olives from wild olive trees are included in the harvest. Each variety of olives has its own distinct aroma, so that the natural blending of such a wide range of olives creates a full-bodied olive oil with its own distinctive unique bouquet and rich and complex flavor. The olives are hand picked and cold-pressed within a day or two. The oil is stored and bottled unfiltered, preserving all its goodness.  Each bottle is individually numbered and marked with the harvest year and the harvest/cold-pressed lot.
Dizzy Bee Bar(n), a restored 19th century barn within the estate, often hosts olive oil tastings and informal lunches.
