Mykonos Olive Oil Tasting

I am Anita Zachou! I am an Expert Olive Oil Taster by Jaen University in Spain, Agricultural Engineer & Holistic Wellness Coach. I was born in Athens and I feel very lucky and proud to be Greek. The beauty of Greece is the biggest source of wellness for me.

I come from an olive oil-producing family from Kalamata and since I can remember myself, I was playing around & climbing on some of the millions of olive trees of the Messinian land playing, participating in the harvest, and enjoying my family’s fresh olive oil every year. When I grew up it came naturally for me to study agronomy. My great passion for olive oil and gastronomy led me to seek deeper knowledge and become a professional Olive Oil Taster in 2012. Later on, I was granted a scholarship by the International Olive Council (IOC) to attend the most prestigious olive oil tasting course at the University of Jaen in Spain (UJA), from which I hold the title of Expert in Virgin Olive Oil Tasting.

Mykonos is a small island in the middle of the Aegean Sea in Greece. It might be small, but carries a big reputation; it is the most famous island of Greece worldwide, a brand name itself. It is the island of mythology, history, unique light and beauty. It is particularly famous for the cosmopolitan atmosphere (favorite holiday destination for billionaires,international movie stars and royalties), the exciting nightlife, the picturesque Cycladic architecture, the magnificent beaches and the neighboring sacred island of Delos. What is not so famous about is its rich culture, local gastronomy, customs and traditions. From folk dances to loom woven fabrics and from cheese & charcuterie making to traditional feasts. Feasts are a custom that dates back to ancient times, originating from the worship of Dionysus, the god of wine and fertility. Despite the modern lifestyle in Mykonos, local people devoutly preserve their folkways. Honoring the tradition of their land, Mykonians have made significant efforts lately to revive the cultivation of olive trees on their island.
