    Family-owned olive making farm, very welcoming
    Very nice Croatian couple (Italian, Croatian, English spoken, maybe more). We tasted their three different olive oils, and they explained a lot about the process of growing, harvesting and processing the olives. They have three different bottle sizes. Perfect for gifts.

    Das beste Olivenöl Istriens!
    Wir haben dort bereits 2011, 2012 und heuer Öl geholt – es ist mit Sicherheit weltweit im Spitzenbereich zu finden! Wir nehmen immer reinsortiges Frantojo oder ein Blend aus mehreren Olivensorten (bis zu 4), schmeckt ganz toll. Heuer war aufgrund von Ernteproblemen (zuviel Regen Anfang Oktober) noch nicht soviel los und nur das Blend verfügbar. Also fahren wir Anfang Dezember nochmal runter und decken uns noch mit Frantojo ein.

    Olivenöl der Extraklasse!
    Ein guter Teil der istrischen Produzenten lässt hier abfüllen, was sicherlich zur sehr hohen Qualität der istrischen Olivenöle beiträgt. Das Öl von Agro-Millo selbst ist natürlich von ebenso herausragender Qualität. Wir kaufen immer direkt in Istrien, denn die Hersteller sollen für ihre Bemühungen, hervorragende und echte Extra Vergine-Öle zu produzieren, durchaus belohnt werden. Wer dieses Öl einmal geschmeckt hat, greift nie wieder zu billiger Supermarkt-Ware!

Very friendly, tailored to age group visit
We learned about the olive oil making process and the Smillovich aka Millo family history, learning about the History of Istria.
We tasted the various oils and were happy to buy some to take home: best souvenirs possible!
Thanks for such a warm welcome and open sharing

Very friendly and helpful staff! Delicious olive oil!!
We weren't sure where to go, so called them upon arrival and someone came down to the olive mill to pick us up.
We had a very nice tasting.
After we left we had some car problems, the staff came out to help and helped us on our way! Thank you very much!

On my third visit to Istria, I wanted to get a close look at how local olive oil was made, and I found Agro-Millo on TripAdvisor. It is a small farm/production mill near Buje, with the kind of family-run pride that makes it special and memorable. Pamela gave us a wonderful and informative tour of the facility and answered all our questions in excellent English before giving us taste of three types of oil, from which we selected a few bottles to take home. The olive oil is delicious! Definitely worth a stop on your visit to Istria. Call ahead and reserve a time convenient for the family to give a tour, and enjoy!

This olive oil factory is owned and operated by two brothers and the children and children-in-law of one of the brothers. We met some of them and they were all very warmhearted

One of the children first gave us a tour inside the factory. Her English is very good - her native language is Italian. Besides explaining the current production process she also gave a good overview of the factory and the involvement of here grandfather and inhabitants of the village where she lives and works together with her family.

The production process was actually more complex than we expected and was explained with a lot of detail without making the story confusing.

It was inspiring to find out how this family persevered from the beginning in realizing their dream, given all the historical conflicts.

After the tour we went inside the house where the family lives to taste the 3 types of oils they produce. You can buy bottles of 25, 50 or 75 cl. (they also sell online)

In the meantime we have used one of the oils on our home made pizzas and salads and the taste was very good!

Highly recommended - not just for the olive oil production process but also to give you an opportunity to talk to local people about the history of the Istria.

Agro-Millo offers 3 different oil, which you can taste. Personally, I recommend Frantoio. With English and Italian you'll be able to understand the explanation.
The family running the business are very kind and helpful!
A must for the olive oil lovers...

Called ahead if we could come by. It was no problem. They have no official tour program or tour area. We got a personal tour trough their mill. The lady spoke in good english about their family mill and the process of making oil.

At the end we could taste some of the oils and bought a bottle of their new oil.
