Cuj wine cellar and olive mill


Črna, Buža, Bjelica and Selection are the superb extra virgin oils from Cuj, which is the name of the olive mill and winery of the Kraljević family from Farnažine, not far from Umag.
The tradition of producing wine and olive oils in the family dates back to the 15th century, and the name Cuj was taken in honour of grandfather August who in the Istrian dialect used to talk with everyone saying “Cuj, cuj da ti rečem” (“Listen, let me tell you something”).

Cuj oil and wine, as well as local culinary specialities, can be tasted in the beautiful ambience of the cellar and olive mill on their estate.

Confirmation of the extraordinary quality of their oils is that they have been included in Flos Olei, the world guide of olive oils, which is published by the famous Italian wine and food critic Marco Oreggia, for several years in a row.

The latest technology and love of oil and wine enable oenologist and owner Danijel Kraljević to transform his ideas and knowledge into modern products that are recognised by fans of traditional original tastes and indigenous varieties.
In 2006 a new cellar and olive mill were built in the surroundings of Umag and thereby the conditions for serious production were created.

In the Istrian ambience of the cellar which is located in the surroundings of Umag (Farnažine, Sveta Marija na Krasu) it is possible to taste wines and olive oils with a guided tour of the cellar and olive mill, whilst by booking in advance, culinary delicacies can also be tasted along with professional teaching about wine and olive oil.
