Excellent place to learn about olive oil, its history on Istria, and to taste how extra virgin oil should taste. Very interesting place, very informative tasting session.
Very pleasant experience. You should definitely do the tasting. The audio guide is not really needed.
The history and true nature of olive oil. Very informative .
We had a wonderful experience visiting today. My kids were tired and grumpy, and I honestly didnt think they would want to do the tour. The lady was so nice and helpful. The kids ended up having a really nice time and even learned some about olive oil! Win-win!
Amazing if you want to know all about actual olive oil and how to do proper oil tastings. Your mind will be blown. Guaranteed.
