World’s leading olive oil guide, L’extravergine, declared Meneghetti’s Izbor as the world’s best olive oil in the “intensely fruity aroma” category. We are rightly proud of our oils, made from hand-picked olives that grow within the estate. Though the production is limited and only 1.500 liters are produced every year, we invite you to indulge in a special experience for your taste buds and book your olive oil guided tasting program.
