Sandi Chiavalon, one of the youngest and, we can freely say, most progressive and energetic Istrian olive makers, started following his dreams while he was practically in high school. His vision was to use the latest technology in order to get the best from olive trees his family traditionally grew. Since then, he planted numerous trees, and has been recognized as one of the best Croatian olive oil producers. His olive oils were among the first Croatian ones to enter the prestigious Flos Olei world olive oil guide, and also, the first one available worldwide.
As for us, we feel there isn't a meal or an ingredient that won't taste better with Ex Albis Chiavalon olive oil! For realz!
If you're around Vodnjan, be sure not to miss Sandi Chiavalon's wonderfully designed tasting room, where he'll be happy to tell you all you need to know about olives, production process and finally, the oil he is very proud of.
