Guided Tastings

Ventula Travel is a company with long experience in olive oil production. Therefore, we offer guided tastings of olive oil on several different places, either in olive grove or in the garden of ancient Tusculum, at the Ancient Salona site.*

The one staged in Salona for sure gives a historical context to the story, since the heritage of olive oil can be traced here in the times before antiquity. Numerous artefacts in Salona still witness the importance of olive oil in antiquity. At the olive grove, on the slopes of mountain Kozjak, you will enjoy in beautiful panorama on the whole bay of Kaštela and central Dalmatia. During the tasting, we also like to present the process of olive oil making with a video projection showing the production.

Duration: approx. 2 h // Departure/Return: flexibile

In addition, you will taste the different varieties of oil, from mono-varietal Golden Oblica of the unified growers of Dalmatia, to gourmet oils Cvita, oils flavoured with freshly picked herbs: fennel, lavender, rosemary and sage.

Familiarize yourself with inferior oils, and their characteristics. Ask what you want to know...

Enjoy in sensory experiences and newly collected knowledge...

*  for the visit to the olive groves, we require supplement of 15 € per person.
