His is a true family business. Nedeljko has spent his life here among the olives, as did his father and his grandfather. He and his wife, Zorka, have 3 adult sons: Pater, Jovan, and Ilija, all of whom are college graduates, all of whom are now involved in the tourism and agriculture of this place.
And theirs is the first and only certified organic olive oil in the whole of Montenegro; a lineage dating back to when olives were picked by hand and pressed using very old machines still present on the property.
Approximately 900 olive trees on 8.5 acres produce 700 to 1,000 liters of organic olive oil every year. A modern Italian oil press is necessary now, and the Morics no longer pick the olives by hand. At least not most of them.
As Ilija explained to us how to sample and taste the olive oil like wine, accompanied only by the olives themselves and simple, homemade sheep's milk cheese, his passion was evident and infectious.
An authentic and fascinating experience.
