Description

Kakkavos Estate manages a 40-Ha farm, one of the largest in Greece, with 6,000 olive trees, and is located 5 km outside the town of Messolonghi, between the large Acheloos and Evinos rivers and the Mesolonghi lagoon. Together, they form the largest wetland of the Mediterranean, which is protected by the Ramsar treaty as one of eleven internationally-important wetlands.
The estate belongs to our family since 1870 and has recently been extended, reviving cultivations using modern scientific methods that respect both the tradition of the olive tree and the environment, to produce Kalamata olives as well as olive oil from four different varieties of olive trees.

TOUR AND TASTING

When you visit our estate, we will describe the flora and the fauna that reflect the region’s biodiversity. Our discussion will focus on the four varieties of olive trees cultivated on our estate.
We will then show you the three products we produce: salt, olive oil, and olives, and take you on a tour of our standardization facilities so that you can see how Kalamata olives are processed.
Finally, we will visit the olive mill and explain the olive oil production process to you.
Visitors can also see the traditional stables of wild and black pigs.
A tasting concludes the visit.
