03.02.2017 Chiavalon Olivenöl
Twenty years ago, Tedi and Sandi Chiavalon from Vodnjan, Croatia began the production of high-quality organic olive oil. Today they are the proud owners of 7500 olive trees spreading over 25 hectares in one of the best olive-growing regions in Croatia.
Since the Roman times this region was known as “the golden triangle” due to high-quality of locally grown olives which gave the Chiavalon brothers an inspiration for the name of their gold-awarded product, “Ex Albis”.
The Zurich Olive Oil Award 2017 went to the “Ex Albis” in the categories “Best Organic” and “Gold”. “Ex Albis” is an organic blend of five domestic varieties of olive, such as Buza, Carbonazza, Istrian Bianchera, Rossignola and Morasola. The Chiavalons also produce two additional extra virgin olive oils:
• “Organic”, which has been certified by the “Austrian Bio Guarantee”
• “Mlado” limited to 2500 bottles, pressed from the harvest of the first three days.
The full range of the Chiavalon olive oils can now be purchased exclusively through Swissco Group AG in Switzerland.
