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.

Great experience, Andrea is super knowledgable and the olive oil he produces is by far the best we’ve ever tried! We also never realised we knew so little about olive oil production! Highly recommend this tour!

Prima tour, maar het had zeker iets uitgebreider gemogen. Zoals meer diepgang in het verhaal. Vragen konden wel gesteld worden, maar vaak weet je iets niet dus kun je er ook geen vraag over stellen. Het weer werkte ook niet mee (flinke storm toen we op de olijfgaard waren) maar voor zo'n 30 euro per persoon verwacht ik wel meer diepgang en zeker een uitgebreidere proeverij. Nu kregen we 2 kopjes met een heel klein beetje olijfolie. Zo kun je zeker het beste proeven, maar voor dit bedrag had wat brood en hapjes beter gepast. Wel heel leuk dat de tourguide met passie over z'n werk vertelde en we thuis ontvangen worden! Daarna rijd je wel weer 10 minuten heen en 10 minuten terug naar de olijfgaard.

Wie hier schon mehrfach ausführlich geschrieben sind die zwei Stunden bei Andrea ein lehreicher und unterhaltsamer Ausflug in die Geschichte des Olivenöls und generell in die Themen Landwirtschaft, Industrie und Nachhaltigkeit. Währenddessen schlendert man gemütlich über Andreas Olivenplantage und lernt die verschiedenenen Olivensorten und wie der Anbau funktioniert kennen. Dazu durften wir einen hervorragenden Weißwein genießen und anschließend zwei Olivenöle testen. Jetzt wissen wir worauf es bei einem guten Olivenöl ankommt! Kleiner Tipp: Im Spätsommer lange Klamotten oder Anti-Mücken-Spray einpacken, da die Moskitos sehr aktiv waren.

It was a great experience with Andrea! We learned a lot of new things about olive oil and olive growing. Tour was interesting, funny and unobtrusive. So I highly recommend it! P.S. If you get there from Pula by taxi, keep in mind that you can wait Uber for a very long time. Plan your time in advance.
