Fantastic colours and tastes
In the TurkAegean, the generous Mother Earth provides delicious fruits and vegetables, as the climate and soil are suitable for growing a wide range of fruits and vegetables. Also, olive tree cultivation and olive oil production are prevalent all over the region. The olive tree is the source of much good, appealing both the tastebuds and the eye: Olives can be pickled or salted for delicious brunches or apéro tables, olive leaves are used to make herbal tea, dry branches are converted into objects that bring a rustic air to tables, and the olive oil is used for healing besides cooking and dressing on these lands. Stroll through the olive groves to admire the beauty of soil crowned by silvery-green olive leaves, smell and taste the freshly squeezed extra-virgin olive oil.
Another product of the region that has been around for thousands of years is wine. Today, Turkish winemakers produce wine with their valuable wisdom and significant experience.
