Černeka

By Uljara Torkop

Černeka is a monovarietal extra virgin olive oil crafted from an autochthonous variety in Istria. The oil is a gold-green color of high quality and is recognizable by its pronounced spiciness and bitterness. It boasts intense and rich aromas, complemented by the scent of medicinal herbs, especially mint and rosemary. Černeka is suitable for dishes with strong flavors, such as bitter vegetables, with ripe cheeses, “boškarin” steak, bear claws and grilled boar.
Where to Find

About Uljara Torkop

The Černeka family has long had the tradition of cultivating olives, inherited from their ancestors, in the Sovinjak area near Buzet. On the northernmost point of the Northern Istria peninsula olive groves thrive on terraced calcareous and limestone soil 690 to 950 feet above sea level. We process the olives with advanced technology in our own olive mill. The olives are grown traditionally and we harvest them at the beginning of October and process them in the same day to ensure high quality.
