Begin with a visit at the Kumquat Distillery that includes a liqueur tasting as you are introduced to this unique citrus fruit, native to Japan but wholeheartedly adopted by Corfu. Drive through olive, lemon and orange groves interspersed with cypress trees and see, in passing, the Old and New Fortress. Travel to Kato Garounas village to visit its small municipal museum housed in an old olive oil press, where the mill is still in place, to see how olive oil was produced in the past. The last remaining craftswomen will also demonstrate the traditional art of carpet weaving as well. Enjoy some free time to explore this beautiful rural village. Continue through picturesque old-world villages that dot Corfu’s countryside as you reach the village of Aghios Matthaios. Arrive at The Governor's Olive Mill, located in a protected region and take a journey into the heart of Corfu. Over the course of many centuries, this part of Corfu was covered with olive trees, which remains a vitally important product to this day. Visit the mill, owned by the Dafnis family, who produce an award-winning olive oil, named "The Governor". An olive oil expert welcomes you and shares the secrets of fine quality olive oil. Through the narration, travel back in time to learn about the time-honored methods used by the Dafnis family across generations. Improve your tasting skills by sampling one of the best olive oils in the world. Also, in a specially designed area of the facility, see a presentation of the history of the local vineyards and taste some typical Corfiot wines accompanied by a selection of snacks. Another highlight in this part of the island, is the 13th C Byzantine Castle of Gardiki, proof of the authenticity of this area of Southern Corfu.
