Olive oil

The staple of Mediterranean cuisine, olive oil is an unavoidable souvenir to take from Croatia. There are many original olive oil products and manufacturers to choose from, all made from indigenous varieties of this island.

Extra virgin olive oil and olive leaf tea by Dalma Olea


Dalma Olea is multi-variety extra virgin olive oil made from handpicked olives that are grown in the unique microclimate of the island of Brač, headquartered in Pučišća. The combination of a large amount of sunlight, light rainfall, nutrient-rich soil and fresh sea salt brought by the winds provides this island with the perfect conditions for growing olives. The oil, smelling and tasting of fresh olives and aromatic herbs with moderate bitterness and pungency, is an ideal combination of the Oblica, Levantinka and Nostrale varieties.


Postira olive oil 



Postira oil is made from olives grown on the north coast of the Brač island, processed in a traditional way by a hydraulic press (partly from freshly picked fruit and partly from the fruit left in water for several days).

There are also two olive islands made from the autochthonous olive variety of Oblica –  eco extra virgin oil made by Ivan Jakšić and extra virgin olive oil made by the Peša family.


Dragon’s Cave Wine


Plavac Mali Top Quality Dry Wine by Djani Barhanović

This indigenous wine originates from the southern slopes of the Island of Brač, precisely from the land in the vicinity of the Dragon’s Cave and the village of Murvice. It is obtained from the famous ”Plavac Mali” grape sort. Its maximum yield per grapevine is 0.5 kg which results in the top-quality wine. This wine is produced by using environmentally friendly and traditional methods; then is left to ripe in oak barrels. Thus it derives its fruity aromas of prune and forest fruit, saturated with vanilla. The Barhanović family preserves the centenarian tradition of the Island’s wine production. Combined with nature’s gifts and results of their hard work, it provides us with an exquisite wine.
