Throughout the past centuries, Istria has been determined by the olive tree. We owe the first historic manuscripts related to our peninsula and dating back to ancient Greeks and Romans, to this very olive tree and olive oil.
Marcus Valerius Martial (40 – 103 AD), the most renowned epigrammatist of ancient Rome, a Spaniard by birth, chanting praises to his native Cordoba, exclaimed: “Uncto Corduba laetior Venafro, Histria nec minus absoluta testa” (Cordoba, thou art more fertile than the oil-rich Venafro, as perfect as the olive oil from Istria).
The oldest olive tree, which still bears fruit, is over 1600 years old and stands in Brijuni National Park. At this very location, opposite the idyllic Brijuni archipelago is Vodnjan, the town in which my family has lived for several hundred years now.
History, which has left an indelible mark on this area, picturesque scenery that Istria and Vodnjan have to offer all year round and the exquisite gastronomy are the best invitation to visit us. We have designed for you several interesting programs, where during the tour of our olive grove you will learn about the production of extra virgin olive oil, and learn how to properly recognize and appreciate real extra virgin olive oil.
