Istrian producer Giorgio Clai has been producing high-quality wine and olive oil for 25 years. Clai creates excellent products and practices sustainable agriculture.
Clai´s olive oil production has been organic from the very beginning, as it was the only way to reach perfection as Giorgio states.
Clai estate lies in Istria, in a small village Krasica, south of the town of Buje in the northern part of the Istrian peninsula, close to Slovenian and Italian border. Clai property encompasses 10 hectares of vineyards and 5 hectares of olive trees.
Around 200 m above sea level, the vineyards and olive trees enjoy plenty of sunshine and cool and salty sea breezes coming from Adriatic some 10 km to the west. The soil here is limestone flysch – its low fertility and good drainage provide the perfect amount of stress for our old vines. Their principal goal is to enhance our terroir.
Clai produces fantastic award-winning organic extra virgin olive oil - Terrebianche made from 7 different olive varieties - definitely worth trying!
