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.
