Among all top quality Istrian extra virgin oils, only Ol Istria may brag a half-century old reputation. On a total of 220 hectares of olive groves on five locations, we pick the fruit from the olive trees some of which are 40 years old in the largest olive grove in Croatia whose plantations stretch down to the coast.
Situated right by the sea and nourished by the Istrian sun, the olive groves absorb all the goodness of the soil and northern Adriatic climate. We foster their peace, and they reciprocate with top quality olive oil of a sumptuous scent and aroma.
In the olive groves of Brdo, Červar, Larun, Veli Maj and Zelena Laguna stretching on the area of 220 hectares, olives currently ripen on 65,000 trees, with the average annual harvest exceeding 1,000 tons of fruit. Olive varieties used in making Ol Istria extra virgin olive oil are Leccino, Istrian Bjelica, Ascolana, Pendolino and Picholine, and the oil mill also produces blends of different olive varieties.
