All our olive groves are based in Kamponovo, a location near the village of Dajla, within the area of Novigrad-Cittanova. Kamponovo is a slightly elevated micro location near the sea. Its persistent wind currents create excellent conditions for olive cultivation. The top quality of our oil is partly a result of the level of salinity in the air, which increases during stronger wind currents coming from the sea.
In our olive groves, we cultivate different indigenous and introduced varieties – Leccino, Istarska bjelica, Buža, Pendolino and Frantoio.
Buža is a native Istrian variety. Rheos Buža is a monovarietal extra virgin olive oil, light green to golden yellow in colour, with a pronounced fruity taste and scent reminiscent of fresh olive fruit, aromatic herbs, artichoke, apple and citrus. Rheos Buža is a medium intensity oil, of medium bitterness and piquancy.
|Rheos Buža extra virgin olive oil comes in two different sizes:
250 ml and 500 ml
|Keep away from light and heat.
It is best paired with various vegetable carpaccios such as fresh courgette or seasonal mushroom carpaccios. Also, it combines perfectly with fresh soft cheese and it is recommended for various marinades when preparing fish, meat and vegetables.
