About us

The Černeka family has long had the tradition of cultivating olives, inherited from their ancestors, in the Sovinjak area near Buzet.

 The olive oil coming from these parts was mentioned in as early as the Middle Ages. The Roman Empress Livija Drusilla nourished her body with the olive oil coming from this area and managed to keep a fresh and youthful look well into old age.

 On the northernmost continental point of the Northern Istria peninsula olive groves thrive on terraced calcareous and limestone soil 210-290 meters above sea level.


Colors blue, white and green are the markings of Istria – the largest Croatian peninsula, located in the northern part of the Adriatic, close to Slovenia and Italy.

The blueness of the sea is in contrast with the green heartland and the white stone of charming places on the hills.

 The landscape of Istria irresistibley resembles the most beautiful areas of Tuscany or Provence.

 Hills covered with olive groves and vineyards, which proudly elevate a picturesque medieval villages, inspire many artists and are the perfect destination for vacation and gastronomic delights. You are far from the city crowd, surrounded by peace and the gentle chirp of birds …
