Tour & Taste: Wines and Olive Oils of Istria

  • City: Rovinj
  • Duration: Service Duration: Approximately 8 hours in length.


Olive oil is a supremely healthy food and one of the most important ingredients in Croatian cuisine. If you’re not yet familiar with Istrian wine and olive oil, you may be a little surprised to see Istrian names appearing on lists of the world’s best olive oils.

Departing from your hotel in Rovinj, your guide will take you to Istrian villages where you will be introduced to limited-production wines made by the small, but well known, winery Matosevic. These will be accompanied by various appetizers such as traditional bruschette and a selection of the area’s highest-quality cured meats and cheeses.

The tour continues towards the village of Vodnjan where you will be welcomed by two innovative olive oil producers: Chaivalon Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Cadenela Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil. You will learn everything about the production of olive oil and how the olives are transformed into a healthy and flavourful product. You will also learn the history of olive oil, the names of the different varieties and the meaning of words like 'extra virgin'.

After learning about olive oil's most important qualities, you will have the opportunity to taste different varieties of istrian olive oil. This full-day private tasting tour is definitely a treat for foodies and a must for gourmets. At the end of the tour, you will be dropped off at your hotel in Rovinj.
