Olive harvest in Istria
The olive harvest is starting in Istria these days. Istria is one of the northernmost regions where it is possible to grow olives on a larger scale, and Istrian climatic conditions give the olive oil a specific taste and aroma. In addition to nutrition, olive oil is also used for cosmetic and medical purposes, for example in various body care creams. Recently, a tourist offer has been developing in olive groves where there is an opportunity to help with the harvest and at the same time learn about olives, visit oil mills and experience first hand the process of producing the highest quality olive oil.
