The extra virgin olive oil produced from groves in the area constitutes a tradition dating back to the Mycenaean era. The composition of the soil and the ideal local climate are the main factors that contribute to the "golden oil's" outstanding reputation. The thick textured "Koroneiko" olive oil has a subtle taste and a lingering after taste. It is a rich source of antioxidants and vitamins.
