We started our journey with the Gourmante brand a few years ago, travelling around the Greek countryside sourcing unique ingredients and products with tastes and aromas that will travel your mind and senses to the Mediterranean countryside and sea!
Take a peak at some of the local products we have in store for you:
- Protected Denomination of Origin (P.D.O. & P.G.I.) Extra Virgin Olives Oils from regions like Kalamata & Olympia, with a superb aroma, balanced taste and deep green color to enjoy with salads, grilled bread, bbq dishes or fried potatoes (yes, contrary to popular belief extra virgin olive oil is the healthiest oil for frying!)
- Juicy Olives from indigenous Greek varieties like the world famous Kalamata with the deep purple color and full bodied taste, or Halkidiki green olives stuffed with almonds, garlic, sweet red peppers, lemon peel, jalapeno peppers, blue cheese or sundried tomatoes
- Exquisite Organic Vinegars (some aged in oak barrels for that balsamic taste and character!), made from selected Greek grape varieties and naturally blended with organic honey, spicy cayenne pepper, basil and garlic or thyme
- Organic Aromatic Dried Herbs, like oregano, rosemary, lemon balm and garden sage with an intense aroma and high essential oil concentration
Yia Mas - To our Health!
