Organic Basil Herb, Vordonia Greece
My name in Greek means “Mountain Joy” and is said to have been given to me by the goddess Aphrodite as a symbol of happiness. The ancient Greeks were the first to use me, but my popularity quickly spread to the Romans and as far away as Asia. I am the quintessential, flavorful herb of the Mediterranean diet, and have been used for millenia for my flavor and beneficial properties.

I am hand grown and harvested on the rocky hillsides of Mount Taygetos near the town of Vordonia, Sparta by artisanal farmers who have mastered their craft for many generations. I cheer one’s spirit, and am embraced for my taste and aroma, and treasured for my healthful properties.
