BRIST Olive is a family-run business created in 2002 by Silvano Puhar, who now produces extra virgin olive oil of superior quality from both centennial regenerated and newly planted olive groves located near the town of Vodnjan in southern Istria.

The beautifully positioned groves cover 6 hectares of land where trees of local varieties, mainly the Buža, grow in perfect microclimate conditions. Only the finest olives are hand picked, selected and cold pressed on the day of harvest using the most cutting edge technology. A combination of the state of the art processing combined with traditional growing techniques dating back to the Roman times, allow BRIST Olive to produce for you an unsurpassed range of oils.

BRIST Olive offers a range of guided tasting experiences, tailored to your needs, both in the charming oil shop in the centre of historic Vodnjan or on the beutiful groves.

The Puhar family is passionate to share their love and knowledge and invites you to learn about extra virgin olive oil and come for a visit - a tasting and education in our shop, or tour of the Sta Margherita Olive Grove.
