Mystras, Olive Oil with a History

The Despotate of Mystras was home to Constantine Palaeologos, the last emperor of the Eastern Roman Empire. Olive cultivation became a high art in Mystras seven hundred years ago, when its olive groves, next to ancient Sparta, offered their fruit in the palaces of the Despotate. Our ancestors inherited the knowledge of how to produce an excellent olive oil. We still care for our centuries old olive trees on our property with love in order to bottle this extra virgin olive oil that was tasted by the discriminating palates of the court of the last emperor of Byzantium.
