What you'll do

I'll take you to our olive orchards close to Vodnjan, where we'll have a stroll through several fields. You'll get to know the difference between various types of olive trees, the details of organic production, how the olives are grown and how olive oil is made first hand.
We'll also taste the three different labels of oil we produce, you'll understand and learn how to taste and distinguish between good and bad olive oil in the very place it is made!
Of course, we'll throw in a glass or two of some top local wine just to keep you going :-)

I'm an organic olive oil producer and since 2014 I left my job as legal counsel to focus 110% of the time on organic production. Our family grows more than 6500 trees on 30 hectares and I take care of the whole process, from pruning, tending, harvesting, to the bottled oil we produce. I'm a professional olive oil sommelier, a big fan of all food related, and love to share the knowledge of the local area.

Where you'll be

We'll start at our premises in an old house in the middle of the fields. From there, we'll take a ride to our fields, located in one of the best localities for olive oil production in the world. You'll be able to experience first hand how the soil and climate influence our trees, walk between old roman stonewalls and taste our oil close to some of the oldest typical stone huts of the rural area.

Andrea was great. We learned a lot. My kids are teenagers but they also get the flow. Everything was well organized: the walk on the fields, the tasting, the history behind. He is a intelligent guy we could speak/ask about anything. The wine was marvelous. What I also appriciated that he didn't push us to buy from him anything, not even mentioned.

Ein toller Spaziergang durch die Olivenbaum Felder mit Glas Wein, in lockerer Atmosphäre und einem Vortrag der auch für später nützlich ist. Auf jeden Fall sehr zu empfehlen.

It was a great experience! Andrea is a good storyteller. He made the time to answer very clearly to all of our questions. It is a “must do” when you are in Istrië. Interesting and you actually learn a lot about olive oil!!

Highly recommend this experience! A fantastic evening spent walking through the olive groves learning about olive oil and the olive oil production process. We tasted 3 types of olive oil out in the fields next to a stone structure used by workers long ago. It was a perfect evening and we learned so much! Andrea is so knowledgable and personable...even our two kids had a good time and learned something new.

Andrea’s tour was the perfect way to spend an evening: walking through the rows of olive trees with a glass of wine (beer too!) and learning about the process of making high quality Istrian olive oil. Andrea was so knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating to our family. We highly recommend his tour when you are in the Pula/Rovinj!

What a great evening this was! Learned so much about olives and production. Learning about the different types and getting to taste the difference was truly a unique experience. Andrea (the host) and I had a great chat in the olive fields about the culture and commercial oil production. Excited to bring back the knowledge of how to tell the difference between a good olive oil from a not-so-good one. This experience should definitely be added to a traveler’s list!
