The natural processing, hand-picking and cold pressing of the olives provide the extra virgin olive oil of the Vošten family agricultural farm from the village of Vošteni in Sveti Lovreč in western Istria.
The oil is an intensive golden yellow colour with a mild green hue, it smells of wild vegetables, freshly cut grass, artichokes and quince, and its taste is pleasantly bitter and slightly spicy, so it enriches all fish dishes, many meat and vegetable dishes, as well as salads.
The Vošten family has around 700 olive trees between five and 50 years old. Their varieties are Buža (40 %), Istrian Bjelica (30 %), Leccino (20%), and Pendolino and Frantoio both of 5%.
Their oil has won numerous medals at appraisals in Istria and Dalmatia and is also listed in the prestigious Flos Olei world guide.
