Oleum Maris: Pula’s Award-Winning Olive Oil Experience

About Pula Oleum Maris

Nestled between the historical marvel of Pula, an ancient city that sprawls over seven hills, and Vodnjan, famed for its olives and olive oil, is one of Southern Istria’s most expansive olive groves. Here, in this sweeping terrain housing over 15,000 trees, lies Pula Oleum Maris – Olive Oil.

Situated a mere 5 km from the azure waters of the sea, the heart of these burgeoning plantations offers an awe-inspiring view: the majestic Brijuni archipelago, the signature bell tower of Vodnjan, and the enduring silhouette of Pula.

The region’s climate is nature’s endowment, perfected for producing high-caliber Pula olive oil across ages. Complementing this natural bounty is the relentless pursuit of human excellence, culminating in an unparalleled olive oil experience.

The Oio Vivo extra virgin olive oil, standing testament to superior quality, is rooted in the indigenous varieties of the region. This distinction is further amplified by sustainable farming, punctual hand-harvesting, rapid processing, and the utmost care in storage. It’s worth noting that ‘Oio Vivo’, meaning ‘living oil’, is christened in tribute to the Istro-Roman dialect, which to this day, resonates in the Vodnjan region.
