In addition to vineyards, we at Vinakoper also tend 2.5 ha of olive groves. The groves are located in five different sunny areas and consist of about 900 olive trees of different varieties. The prevailing varieties are Istrska belica or Bianchera, Leccino, Pendolino, Črnica and other old varieties.
After the autumn harvest, we make sure olives reach the oil mill as quickly as possible. We select oil mills that use suitable extraction methods and technologies and which guarantee olive oil of the highest quality. Our oil is obtained without additives, exclusively through mechanical extraction at temperatures that do not exceed 27 °C. This type of extraction preserves the olive oil's positive natural qualities.
Our oil is tested by an accredited laboratory and meets the chemical and sensory requirements set by the national Rules on olive oil.
Vinakoper's olive oil consists of different olive varieties, among which prevail Istrska belica, Leccino, Pendolino, Črnica as well as other varieties that thrive in Slovenian Istria.
This blend of varieties, with Istrska belica at the forefront, gives the oil a typical, perfectly balanced bitter and spicy taste, a harmonious combination of taste and aroma. The distinctive characteristics of the Istrska belica variety complement the soft, sweet and fruity taste, reminiscent of green apple, freshly mown grass, artichoke and almond. The oil is green in colour, with shades of gold and yellow.
Olive oil is an essential ingredient of Mediterranean cuisine and a healthy diet. Several studies indicate that the positive effects of olive oil inhibit oxidation and protect our organism against arthritis, coronary disease and breast cancer. The beneficial effects derive from the high content of biophenols and balanced amount of fatty acids.
Olive oil goes well with fish, vegetables, salads, risotto, pasta, meat … as well as desserts.
