WHAT IS THE TASTE OF HISTORY?

BENIOS OLIVE OIL

Monemvasia is renown worldwide for its fairy tale castle, which has been continuously inhabited for more than 15 centuries. During the Middle Ages it was a bustling, prosperous city and became an important commercial center of both the Byzantine and the Venetian Empires.

However, due to its unique climate, the hinterland of Monemvasia always produced fine products, among which stand out the famous Malvasia wine and the excellent olive oil of the area, which were sought after throughout the Mediterranean. Today, at “Benios” estate, we are aiming to continue this long tradition with knowledge and respect for the history of the region.

OLIVE OIL

The extra virgin olive oil “Benios” comes from the mix of the excellent local olive varieties Athinoelia and Koroneiki, which give it a rich spicy flavor, a very fruity aroma and a very high polyphenol content.

ESTATE

Our olive grove includes several ancient olive trees aged more than 150 years old, while oil production is a long family tradition of three generations of producers who work hard every year with love and care in order to extract the best olive oil.

MONEMVASIA

The medieval castle-town keeps intact its glamour and timeless charm and invites visitors from all over the world in order to reveal its secrets.
