Kalamata Olives - Oliveology

Location: Sparta, Greece

Marianna Kolokotroni created Oliveology in 2009 in order to share the appreciation of some delicious culinary traditions from her family homeland of Greece,

She only works with independent artisan farmers producing delicious foods and using traditional and sustainable techniques.  In this way she supports the preservation of traditional foods and independent local artisanal producers, often organic.


Single estate Kalamata olives from near Sparta, these olives are hand-picked and cured in fresh water before being pickled with vinegar, salt, lemon juice and then dressed with extra virgin olive oil.

These unpasteurised Kalamata Olives have the characteristic, salty yet winey flavour but being unpasteurised, the flavours of the olive also come through delivering a fruity quality.
