The old Istrian native olive variety from northern Istria. The tree is strong and vigorous. Fruit is medium to large, on a long stem. It is resistant to common pests and diseases.
The oil is thick and flavourful, with rounded fruity and elegant aromas on the nose, fresh, green, notes of green walnut leaves, with a pronounced pleasant and lasting bitterness and spiciness.
Recommended pairings: with hard cheeses, cold fish appetizers, cod, and with delicate fish pâtés.
Our story started quite by chance. But nothing about our olive oil is by chance. At first, we fell in love with this area, Veli Mlun and its surroundings, without any excessive plans we bought our first olive grove in 2016. Our only plan was, as in everything else, to do what we do passionately, to do what makes us happy and to pass that joy on to others. We have never planned to create a large production of olive oil.
Our plan was and remains to create something special and of high quality, and to enjoy the process of creation. We hope you will enjoy with us. Veli Mlun is a small village in Istria located on a hill under which the Mirna River stretches in all its beauty. The wonderful oasis of green and winding river in the lowlands does not allow travellers to look up at the surrounding hills, but when they do so and climb up the hill to Veli Mlun, they discover landscape that leaves them breathless. And still, after so many years, it leaves us breathless every day. Small glades covered with olive groves and vineyards are a sign that there is a lot of life in this seemingly sleepy place.
With the height of the highest point of Veli Mlun at 225 m above sea level, this is a truly unique area and one of the northernmost and highest points in Istria where olive trees flourish. This, in combination with the specific soil, constant care of olives, cultivation and maintenance of olive groves in accordance with the highest standards, makes our oils of high quality and special, the proof of which are numerous awards and recognitions acquired at famous national and international competitions.
