sightseeiconOlive Tasting & Cooking at K Olive Estate (from Heraklion)

The K Cretan Mill is a family estate and a traditional olive mill accredited with the Protected Designation of Origin Archanes, Heraklion, and Crete. They produce the oils exclusively from their olive groves. About 2000 trees surround the olive mill. From the tree to the bottle they strive for perfection and auhenticity in quality and taste. They make extra virgin olive oils using the most ancient and modern methods of olive oil extraction with a telling effect. The Cretan Mill was established in Crete in 1999 and is a family business. The family has a passion for olive oil that led them to build their state-of-the-art olive mill, at the very heart of the Cretan land, to ensure optimum quality olive oils from the tree to the bottle.
