Grown in the historic olive growing region of Istria in northwestern Croatia, Chiavalon olives are continually monitored throughout the year to ensure only the best olives make it into oil. The Chiavalons have spent over 23 years working to perfect the art of extra virgin olive oil, and they have their award cases to show for it.
Chiavalon brings fine-dining quality olive oil to your kitchen. Created to emulate the high quality olive oils that graced the tables of the ancient Romans, who were particularly fond of Istrian olive oil, every bottle of Chiavalon Ex Albis brings an authentic taste of the Mediterranean that cannot be beat.
What Our Customers Have to Say...
Chiavalon Ex Albis | Organic Croatian Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Best olive oil. Ever since we did the taste testing in Croatia I just always order the same ones
We 1st tasted Chiavalon Olive Oil at their wonderful olive tree farm in Croatia a few years ago. What and experience and what a fabulous find! It is our favorite olive oil and we always keep extra bottles on hand to share as hostess gifts with friends. So happy to find Drusk Trading Company can supply our favorite olive oil! Thank you
I have ordered this olive oil twice from Drusk. The second order all three olive oils from Chiavalon were available so I ordered all three. As I had tasted this oil while traveling in Croatia and loved the flavor and texture, I was excited to find it was available here. I highly recommend all three.
This olive oil from Croatia is the very best olive oil in the planet! It is perfect for every use, even cooking, but especially for dipping bread and making salad dressing. It is light and extremely flavorful.
