Divina has selected the Halkidiki olives to be an excellent variety to be stuffed with Blue Cheese and kept in brine. Mount Athos or Agion Oros, as it is locally known occupies the best part of the Athos peninsula in Halkidiki, a rugged, sea-battered peninsula 56 kilometers long and holds the oldest surviving monastic community in the world. Because of it's isolation Mount Athos has remained one of the most unspoiled parts of Greece.
Divina works with the finest small farms and artisans throughout the Mediterranean to bring you authentic products of exceptional quality. Their olives, from classic Kalamatas to specialty varietals like Lucques and Picholines, bring real excitement to your olive bars. Unrivaled in quality, taste and diversity, the olives are handpicked, hand-sorted and cured using an all-natural fermentation process that fully preserves their natural flavor.
