My first holiday in Istria in 2017, I went to the olive oil museum in Pula and took the class on olive oil tasting. It was an eye opener. A couple days later I visited the Brist store. This is a professionally run, small family business and the product is not only amazing, it’s award winning. My first visit to the shop lasted 2 hours because they treated us like long lost friends. Brist has turned into the only place we get our olive oil and every friend we bring there, whether they are from California, Ohio, Germany, or Austria, they have all ended up buying Brist Olive Oil. Those lucky enough to be in Europe have also continued to order it online after their holidays. The farm tour is also great fun and I’ve spent 2 evenings there dining under the stars with friends and the amazingly friendly Brist team. I just visited today to get oil for my household and for a friend in Salzburg who was here with us last year. This oil and this family will make an impression that you will cherish and it will keep you coming back year after year.

Thank you so much. Although we know you well, I won't mention names but simply to say that we feel that you are really part of our family. Great evenings on the grove and so much positivity you have brought to us over the years. Thanks for the recommendations and this one too. We do not advertise, it is your words, and those who really care about what we do that allow us to grow in the way we want to and keep the passion for our oils and the belief that anchors it. We send greetings to Austria, 'Frisco and wherever you might find yourselves when not with us. Paul, Lena and family crew.

We sampled their oils at the Amfiteatar hotel and were so impressed that we just had to visit the source. Brist olive oils I Vodnjan are a match for any in the world and that is some claim. go and explore, you won't be disappointed. Thanks Paul, you made our day. If you don't have a car, the local bus is regular and takes little time.

If you are traveling through Istria make sure to stop here for a fun tasting! We came to the coast in hopes to try some decent olive oil and we were blown away by the taste of Brists' selections. Paul is a wonderful host and super knowledgeable in his field. He has changed our entire outlook on olive oil and it's production. We left with several bottles and will definitely buy from Brist again in the future. We can't wait to come back in the summer to visit the grove.

Thank you all for the very positive review, it was lovely to meet good Texans and of course the lady from Maryland! It's always nice to have guests with us out of season so that we can really spend some extra time with you and I hope very much that you will make your way from your present home in Zagreb to us again during the summer for a Sunset Tour, you have really only so far experienced just a part of what we do, the best is yet to come! Kindest regards, Paul.

This review is long overdue. We visited the store and had an olive oil tasting. Paul was very knowledgeable about olive oil and taught us so much about it. We bought a few bottles to take back home. We mentioned a nice restaurant we were heading to for lunch and he called ahead for us so they had a table ready when we arrived. We had booked the evening sunset tour but were concerned about the weather forecast as it was supposed to storm. Paul confirmed the meeting point and was closely tracking the weather. In the end, the tour was canceled due to weather but the level of customer service he provided was amazing. It was our last night in the area so unfortunately we were unable to rebook but he did not charge us for the tour and even gave us a box of local chocolates for our inconvenience. Great experience and customer service. We look forward to visiting again to buy more olive oil and take the tour. Thank you Paul!

Thank you so much Michel for such a positive review, I remember the day in question well, high humidity and storms and clear skys all mixed up. I remember how positive you had been in the shop and that it was your last opportunity for a tour, and for that reason I held the decision to the last minute. You travelled a long distance also, understanding that it might not happen and when we both realised that tonight was not the night, you were again so positive. My instinct just said that I wanted to say thank you with a small gesture. We rarely have cancellations, and I hope when they happen that everybody is expecting chocolate!!! Thank you for beig so positive :-) Paul.
