To endure hundreds of years of olive production (yes, hundreds!), trees are grown in an environment that ensures the long term success and quality of the olive trees and the olives they produce.
Gold medals in Italy, New York, Japan, Switzerland, Croatia, Israel…need we go on? Chiavalon Extra Virgin Olive Oils have won the top award in the biggest competitions across the world.
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...
Fantastic product ,fantastic costumer service!
I ordered this oil and had it shipped to a friend in another state for his birthday. He said this Croatian olive oil was AMAZING !
We visited Chiavalon family olive oil orchard a few years ago in Croatia. We were so excited to be able to get it easily in the US through Drusk Trading Company.
If you ever get a chance, go visit the orchard, the area is so beautiful and the family has owned the farm for generations. They do not use anything artificial or additives, only high quality pure olive oil, in their entire process. The oils are the best we’ve ever tried!
I’m of two minds writing this review. If too many people find out that Istrian olive oil is far superior to any other, there might not be enough for me.
I first tried this wonderful olive oil in Croatia. I'm so pleased that I am able to purchase on a regular basis and enjoy it at home. I love the flavor it adds to my food. Plus, dipping bread in it is amazing! I have given it as gifts and it is always a huge hit.
