TASTING NOTES: These tracks were left 15 million years before the Acropolis was created. Claw and pad fossilized in a perfect limestone landslide. Since then, groves of laurel, lemons and amber laden pine have grown here. Peppercorns, hibiscus flowers and Orangina have been traded. Entire cities have been built from these blocks, and yet, looking behind, you can see the saber tooth rising from the rock.
