Kalamata Olives, similar to many wines, get their name from the region in Greece where they are grown. The Kalamata region is well known in Greece specifically for producing olives and olive oils. This dark purple olive is commonly used for olive oils, but we are typically most used to those that are pickled in wine vinegar.

Kalamata olives are great by themselves, served with cheese, in a tapenade or mixed in your favorite pasta dish like our White Wine Shrimp Pasta! If you’re heading out the Stanly County Winter Wine Festival with us this weekend, stop by Ohh-lio express to try some of their great Olive Oils and dips!
