Cheese Tasting & Making Experience
Messinia is renowned for its fine cheeses with unique personalities. Some, such as rich and spicy Sfela, have received a coveted Protected Designation of Origin, while others, including melt-in-the-mouth Talagani, have achieved global recognition. A great way to learn about the region’s long and proud cheese-making tradition, but also a delight for the taste buds. It all unfolds in the Taverna, where our chef will reveal the secrets of the local cheese varieties and explain the time-honored production methods. Sample the various styles of cheese accompanied by delicious regional wine and seasonal fruits, all of which capture the flavor of Messinia, and watch as local women make soft Tyromyzithra from fresh goat’s milk, which will then be served with honey and cinnamon.
