Let’s Talk About Olive Oil! is a course designed by Eftychios Androulakis and Chloe Dimitriadis, a collaboration between two hands-on and passionate producers, aimed to talk about all aspects of olive oil quality, especially elements that can be often overlooked by mainstream international standards. In this course, you will learn about how quality and taste is affected by variety, cultivation, harvest, production method, and packaging. This is a discussion for those who love the world of quality food and those interested in learning about what to look for in olive oil beyond just “Extra Virgin”.
The course includes a kerasma of local wine and traditional Cretan appetizers and all participants will receive an analytical booklet of the course material.

We learned so much from visiting the Biolea farm — who knew there was so much to potentially learn about olive oil production? Our tour was fascinating and informative, and the olive oils are so delicious.
Great factory tour with lots of details about olive oil production. Learned so much about the differences in olive oil quality levels and production methods!
It was the first time we visited an olive farm and we could not have chosen better!
The road to the plant is spectacular, great views!!!
Our experience at Biolea Olive Oil Estate was fantastic. Chloe, daughter of the owner, was friendly and knowledgeable about olive trees, olives, and of course the organic oil production for the family brand.
Our guide was very interesting. The place is a little bit hard to find but it worth it! It’s a beautiful place to visit and the olive oil is very good!
I had a very kind email contact with Chloe and we’ve visited biolea today. We had tour through the fabric, with a lot of information. It was very interesting and Chloe was very friendly! At the end of the tour you had the chance to try the different oils! Really good! We can recommend it!!!
