Extra virgin olive oil produced in cooperation with the Vodnjan-Dignano elementary school. The oil is characterised by a long lasting flavor which is dominated by a taste of artichoke aromas, green tomatoes and roasted pomace, with balanced pungency and bitterness. Enriched with fresh rosemary, bay leaves and chilli
For the production of our extra virgin olive oil, we use the best quality olives, picked by hand. We produce the oil in a traditional and ecological manner to preserve the specificity and character of the olives and thus get the highest quality product.
This oil was produced in cooperation with the Vodnjan-Dignan Elementary school as part of our Didactic Farm project, where every class had the opportunity to produce their own oil and learn about the production, value and preservation of olives and olive oil. Our oil bottles contain unique and original labels, designed and painted by classes of the Vodnjan-Dignano Elementary school, representing a real, small piece of art.
