Olives have titanic power, a vital force that makes them nearly immortal. Despite rigid winters and hot summers, despite pruning, they continue to grow proud and strong, stretched to the sky. They bring fruit that nurture, heal, inspire and surprise. Moderate climatic conditions, characterized by very hot and dry summers and rainy winters, contribute to rich crops. Stone, drought, silence and loneliness are the perfect place for magnificent olive trees.

The man consumed the fruit of the olive trees already in the Palaeolithic. It is among the oldest known cultivated trees in the world - being grown before the written language was invented.
The Etruscans and other peoples of the Apennine Peninsula were the largest importers of olive oil from Greece and the Middle East in the first place, and later also the Romans. They began to cultivate the olive trees during the third and second centuries before our count. In this period, olive trees probably came to Istria, Dalmatia, and finally, to the Slovenian Littoral.

Olive oil was more than just a meal for the Mediterranean: it was a medicine, a magical, infinite source of fascination and marvel, source of great wealth and power. In ancient Greece, athletes ritually greased their body with it. The olive tree was a symbol of abundance, fertility, glory and peace. His branches and leaves were crowned winners of friendly games and bloody wars, and the oil of his fruits was sacrificed to the most noble through history. Olive crowns and branches, emblems of blessing and cleansing, were ritually offered to gods and mighty figures: some were even found in the Tutankhamun tomb.
