Do you like curvy roads with vertiginous views and beautiful panorama on Butoniga Lake? And want to taste some delicious extra virgin olive oil on your way? Take the road Pazin-Motovun, after Beram follow signs for Zamask and your adventure may start. Steep slopes covered with olive groves and vineyards will take your breath away.
Here in the central Istria you will find indigenous olive variety Črnica which gives a sweet oil with a typical nuts flavor. Our favorite was a monovarietal oil from Ascolana Tenera olives produced by OPG Valenta from Zamask. It is an incredibly fruity and sweet oil perfect for some funky dessert based on dark chocolate. Produced by a young guy who got the gold medal at “Maslina 2010″ competition in Split.
We made just for you a detailed map with this road marked in blue.
