On the main road that connects Pula, a three-thousand-year-old city located on seven hills, and Vodnjan, the city of olives and olive oil, you can find one of the largest olive groves in Southern Istria with more than 15,000 trees.
From the heart of our young plantations, located only 5 km from the sea, there is a beautiful and unique view of the Brijuni archipelago, the recognizable bell tower of Vodnjan and the ancient city of Pula.
Nature has simply chosen this climate to create with ease top quality olive oil for millennia, in collaboration with men striving for excellence.
Indigenous varieties, integrated cultivation, timely and manual harvesting, fast processing and careful storage are the key to the first-class quality of Oio Vivo extra virgin olive oil.
OIO VIVO, CREATED TO CELEBRATE LIFE
Oio Vivo, a living oil, bears an ancient Roman name in honor of the Istro-Roman dialect that is still in use today in the Vodnjan area.
Our Istrian olive oil is a natural juice squeezed from the fruit of indigenous varieties of young, fresh olives from pure varietal olive groves, in which all valuable biological and nutritional ingredients are maximally preserved.
Scientific analyzes confirm what is perfectly clear to nature: top quality extra virgin olive oil supports, strengthens and celebrates the life in us!
MAN CONNECTED TO NATURE
Oio Vivo olive groves sprang up on the site of a fire-ravaged pine forest, not far from the sea.
A clear vision, perseverance, togetherness, application of innovations and respect for nature are our basic principles in the creation of liquid Istrian gold.
Today it is a young, pure varietal olive grove that spreads over 56 ha, and boasts five different indigenous varieties, with special emphasis on the revitalization of the old Vodnjan variety Žižolere, and two Italian varieties that serve as pollinators.
