Perdisacca is a family-owned extra virgin olive oil brand from Bale in Istria. Our olive groves of traditional Istrian sorts Buža and Rosinjola are located around Bale municipality in south-western Istria, in one of the most generous locations for olive oil production in Istria. Olive oil production has a long history in our family, dating back a few hundred years. Therefore the unique anecdote - the name Perdisacca comes from a more than century old story retold in the family — great grandfather Giorgio lost a leather saddlebag in a field where today lies the olive grove surrounding the old Istrian villa. The whole village made him a laughing stock, and the mayor changed the name of the location into Perdisacca, which in Italian means ‘perdere il sacco’ — to lose a bag (or a saddlebag). Such story inspired the design — The reference on the lost bag can be found on the embossed map, old as much as the olive grove, where you can find Perdisacca itself if you are persistent enough to play with the light and to touch the label. Producing only small quantities of oil each year, gives us possibility to focus on achieving the best quality product. Recent awards at some of the most important olive oil competitions such as gold award for Buža at the New York International Olive Oil Competition, gold award for Rosinjola at Olive Japan in Tokyo and Flos Olei recognition are a strong proof and encouragement to become even better at what we do.
