The warm air gently streaming from the east and west, a favourable height above sea level, the fertile Istrian soil and proximity to the sea were the preconditions for making high-quality olive oils produced by Oleum Maris d.o.o.

The ambitious owners named Mladen, Martin and Velimir are true visionaries. Their business operation is based on adhering to environmental standards as well as being a socially responsible company. They are extremely innovative, organised and open to all forms of cooperation. They work together with quite a few scientific institutions in order to deepen their knowledge of olive growing, olive oil production and processing. It was this desire to make something new that encouraged them to build a prototype of an olive grove irrigation and fertilisation machine. The machine uses sensors to conserve fertiliser and control the amount of water containing liquid humus. Interesting, isn’t it?

But there’s more. The property also has a tasting area the owners were more than happy to walk us through. Every owner has his own particular assignments. But when it comes to telling visitors a few words about olives, then they proudly gather their guests around by telling them stories, latest developments and sharing their experiences.

When processing olives, they go to great lengths to take care of all the factors contributing to the high quality of their olive oil. The variety, weather conditions prevailing during the ripening stage, the fruits’ ripeness, processing method, the cultivation stage and the application of agro-technical measures are important factors. If you’d like to find out more about when olives are harvested, check out their website where you can have a look at the scheduled time to the next harvest. Just so you can plan your vacation because they’ll definitely need an extra hand
Let’s talk about the olive groves for a while. What makes them so interesting?

If you take bird’s eye view of the olive groves, you’ll notice a regular orthogonal? Grid. This means the properties are spaced in a regular fashion and that they are inspired by Roman settlements. These properties have about 15.000 olive trees and you’ll get the opportunity to familiarise yourself with five autochthonous and two Italian olive varieties.
