Olive oil producers

Olea Prima



Valter Šarić founded his farm in the early 2000s, when the first olive grove with 80 young trees was planted. However, the love for the land and for olive growing has much older roots in his family, handed down from father to son. Today the olive groves are located in three areas in the district of Vodnjan and cover over 5 hectares with 1,750 trees. In the last harvest 150 quintals of olives and almost 20 hectolitres of oil were produced.  

The Flos Olei guide recommends the very good Monovarietal Extra Virgin Olea Prima - Istarska Bjelica Pdo Istra from Organic Farming, which is an intense limpid golden yellow colour with light green hues. Its aroma is ample and rotund, with hints of artichoke and chicory, together with fragrant notes of mint and rosemary. Its taste is fine and harmonic, with a vegetal flavour of lettuce and final notes of black pepper and almond. Bitterness is definite and pungency is distinct.
