The ”Lisjak Gourmet Vintage Tour” offer is an all-day olive oil ‘training course’ for individuals or groups. We begin by picking up our guests at an agreed place.
The noise of vintage vehicles, represented by the Zastava and Fiat brands, quickly draws our guests’ attention by bringing huge smiles to their faces. We continue our journey along the hidden corners of the coast, old roads and between hidden views. Halfway through the tour, we make a stop on a cliff with a beautiful view of the Slovenian coast and offer a glass of Mezzalana house sparkling wine obtained by a classic method – brut zero. We continue along the slopes towards the final destination. We get to the Lisjak estate during sunset, when the heat dies down. There, we offer an educational tour by explaining how olive oil is produced and processed. In the end, we offer a guided tasting of some samples, accompanied by an explanation from an expert.
After that, it is time for some tradtional Istrian dishes: an Istrian ‘narezek’ (dry meat), a drop or two of Malvasia or Refosco wine, ‘bobiči’ stew, pasta fusi with truffles, all based on recipes from our grandmothers. We finish the meal with a dessert of homemade cheese pie, served with seasonal fruit on top.
