    Highlights

    • Welcome to the Engares Olive Press, one of Naxos’s oldest remaining and still operating olive mills. It dates back to, at least, the late 1800s when they used to press locally grown olives for the community

    Description

    Experience the Greek tradition and hospitality and gain insight into one of nature's most basic fruits and staples of the Mediterranean diet.

    Take part in a delightful free tasting of everything olive oil and more; from greek olive varieties to specialty infused olive oils, homemade seasonal marmalades and vegan olive oil sweets. Today, the original stone built structure has been elegantly refurbished to evoke a sense of tradition updated in a contemporary white cycladic design. The olive press has been in the Lianos family (the owners) for at least five generations and was recently restored.

    The exhibition area features original production materials once used at the site. Here, visitors can enjoy a free tour and a brief presentation of how olive oil was originally produced at that time.

    Adjoining the exhibition area is the olive shop 'nook' where olive tastings take place and a selection of olive oil product souvenirs are available. After the free tour, visitors can enjoy complimentary tastings of a variety of infused olive oils and olive ingredient snacks, such as Mama's famously delicious olive bread, cake, cookies and more.

    The patio outside is a soothing place to lay back and relax and enjoy local refreshments. Have a seat and indulge in the natural habitat of Engares, the village of Naxos known for its verdant fertile landscape, before continuing your exploration in Naxos.

    Itinerary

    • Free Tour & Tasting
      View actual tools and equipment that were used in the space at that time. Visit and learn about the traditional methods of olive oil production from a brief presentation (free tour) provided by the Engares Olive Press team. After the free tour and short trip back to olive oil-production history, take the time to indulge in a free tasting of olive oil treats in the venue’s adjoining olive kitchen-shop nook. Taste a variety of olive oils. The homemade olive bread is delicious as are the olive cookies (vegan), “Best in the Universe” olive cake (also vegan), olive paste and speciality olive marmalade.

    • Olive shop
      Like what you tasted? Don’t worry. Many of the goodies you sample — from sweet and savory marmalades, to olive oil varieties — are available for purchase to take home. Souvenirs such as T-shirts, guide books, olive wood cookware, bookmarks and body care and hair care products are also available.

    • Olive Press Café
      Have a bit of extra time, perhaps after biking or hiking nearby trails or exploring the picturesque villages and gorgeous beaches of Naxos? The Engares Olive Press café offers a lovely outdoor patio in which you can relax and enjoy an authentic and Naxos-inspired snack. Cool off with a beverage such as iced herbal tea, glass of local wine, or aperitif ouzo or the local citron (kitron) liqueur. Revive with a spoon sweet preserve made with Engares oranges or a serving of Naxos fava (split chick pea pureé) or hummus. Set in the scenic location of the Engares valley — with olive groves, evergreen trees, wild shrubs and aromatic herbs — Engares is considered one of the Naxos’ most verdant villages.
