A deeper dive into some of our classic Mediterranean foods and ingredients that are part of the Divina grocery program:
Are Castelvetrano naturally bright green? The short answer is yes. Native to the town of Castelvetrano (near Sicily in the Belice Valley), these vibrant olives are naturally brighter than most green olives directly off the tree. To lock in the vibrant color, the Mediterranean olives are cured without fermentation and only (if ever) leave refrigeration when packaged. Often referred to as a “starter olive” due to its fresh, mild, and sweet flavor profile, Castelvetrano olives are the perfect choice to serve with cocktails at a large gathering.
Exclusive to Divina, the Frescatrano is a Greek Halkidiki olive gently cured without fermentation. Sweet, fresh tasting, mild and vividly bright, the Frescatrano is the first-of-its kind in Greece (or the Mediterranean) to be offered in this challenging curing style.
Grown and harvested on the Peloponnese peninsula in Greece, the name Gordal translates to “the fat one,” which goes a long way to explain this varietal’s impressive size and flavor. We feature them as one of the 5 core varietals in our Mediterranean Greek Olive Mix.
Halkidiki (Mt. Athos)
The peninsula of Halkidiki in the Mediterranean is dotted with centuries-old Greek Orthodox monasteries. One-third of the peninsula is occupied by Mount Athos, a famous tenth-century monastery. These hills, descending to the Aegean Sea, are the ideal terroir for growing olives. Halkidiki olives are herbal, fruity and peppery. Their meaty texture and large size also make them ideal for stuffing with cheese, veggies, fruit or nuts.
Arguably the most well-known Mediterranean olive varietal (certainly in Greece), authentic Kalamata olives are distinguished for their deep purple (eggplant/aubergine) color and pointed tip. Often imitated but never replicated, Kalamata are beloved for their fruity and smoky flavor profile often compared to a complex red wine. Kalamata are grown throughout western Greece in the Peloponnese region, harvested and cured in the winter and spring before making their way to the US each summer.
Grown and harvested on the western slopes of Greece, an area renowned for its rich soil and natural springs, Mt. Pelion (Conservolea) olives are plump, juicy and flavorful with slight hints of minerality. Harvested at three stages of ripeness (green, blonde and black), we feature the blonde as one of the 5 core varietals in our Mediterranean Greek Olive Mix.
This Mediterranean varietal comes from the Northeast coast of the Peloponnese Peninsula in Greece. Small in stature but big in flavor, the Nafplion is bright green with a nutty and aromatic flavor profile. We feature them as one of the 5 core varietals in our Greek Olive Mix.
