Overview

There is no point in counting numerous awards Chiavalon oils got either for their packaging design or, what’s more important, for the quality of their olive oils. Sandi Chiavalon, one of the youngest and, we can freely say, most progressive and energetic Istrian olive makers, started following his dreams while he was practically in high school. His vision was to use the latest technology in order to get the best from olive trees his family traditionally grew. Since then, he planted numerous trees, and has been recognized as one of the best olive oil producers in Istria. His olive oils were among the first Croatian ones to enter the prestigious Flos Olei olive oil guide, and also, the first one available worldwide. Recently Chiavalon was listed among the TOP 25 producers in the World by the organization World best olive oils. If you’re around Vodnjan, be sure not to miss Chiavalon’s wonderfully designed tasting room. For the complete tour of the farm pls book in advance.
