Description

Witness the Wild Olives Trees and Hippophae, Collect Wild Herbs
Visitors of our estate in the village of Borsa will see the trees and the fruit of the wild olive tree and of the Hippophaes (a genus of sea buckthorns). They will collect wild Mycenaean herbs: thyme, savory, oregano. They will become familiar with the herb known as “alypon” (meaning no sorrow) from Dioscourides’s references in his bibliography the Globularia Αlypum. The tour offers a panoramic view of the plain of Argos.
Upon return to the premises in Argos, visitors will have a tasting session of our products.
