It is a staple of the famous Mediterranean diet, which is so good for you apparently that UNESCO put it under its protection in 2013 by pronouncing the Mediterranean diet an intangible UNESCO heritage in certain parts of the region, including the islands of Brac and Hvar.
And what would the Mediterranean diet be without olive oil?
Croatia has some of the finest olive oil in the world, and the diversity from Istria to Dalmatia is impressive indeed, and it is one of the great lingering memories for many tourists visiting the Adriatic coast each year.
It is said that a fish in Croatia swims three times – firstly in the sea, then in olive oil during preparation, and finally in wine as it is washed down during the meal. And so we thought it would be appropriate to bring those things together for you, by offering you the chance to remember your Adriatic sea experiences while preparing dinner with some of Croatia’s finest extra virgin olive oils and fine wines.
An excellent selection of 19 quality extra virgin Croatian olive oils is now available for shipping, from individual bottles to beautiful presentation boxes such as the one from Brist, above.
And in order to make the shipping cost a little more manageable, it is possible to mix your olive oil order with some of Croatia’s finest wines in our online shop. Delivery anywhere in the EU is five business days. Take a look at the olive oil goodness on offer here, and to see the full selection of olive oil and wines on sale, click here.
