Authentic Croatian Olive Oil from Central Dalmatia
Most "extra virgin" olive oils are blended with cheaper, refined oils such as soybean, peanut, or canola.
At Selo, we take great pride in what we grow.
We use our olive oil every day, from frying and baking to seasoning our steak and soup. Yes, we even put it in our coffee, and drizzle it over ice cream.
It's just that good.
But our olive oil is more than just for cooking - it's nourishment for the soul, and it brings our family together. We hope it does the same for yours.
Our region's unique Oblica varietal, preserved from the time of Roman Dalmatia, is hand-picked and cold pressed in November at the annual village harvest, in our little selo near Zadar.
And we'd be honored if you tried some. Živili!
- The Erlić Family

Selo Olive Oil (500mL)
Everything I expected and more. Thanks Martin.
Already convinced of the benefits of olive oil and the premium quality of Selo, I jumped at the chance to get the 30 year subscription. My family will enjoy a bottle of the best olive oil every month and be part of the selo for years to come.
I'm so glad to hear that you're enjoying your Selo subscription! It's truly a liquid gold, and I'm sure your family will enjoy every bottle! Thanks for taking the time to write this review.
Title speaks for itself. 11/10
Thank you for your review! We're glad you enjoyed it!
We all know Selo olive oil is fantastic, so I won't spend too much time on that. Needless to say, if you haven't tried it yet, do so.
Given the quality of the oil and the good people involved in producing it, I jumped at the opportunity to get a lifetime supply. It has been a very smooth process; Every couple of months, I receive two bottles in the mail. The packaging is good, I get a heads up by email and can track it, and it is easy to use this website to update my address when necessary. They're also very responsive and helpful if you need to reach out for any reason.
In terms of how far two bottles will go, I use Selo when the flavour is most important - in salads, sauces, drizzled over cheese, dipping bread, etc. I use a different olive oil or butter for things like coating the surface of a pan. Point being, the two bottles lasts me to the next delivery.
Essentially, I'm getting a stress free supply of extremely high quality olive oil forever. Very satisfied with the experience.
We know that this subscription will provide you with a lifetime of quality olive oil, and we're grateful that you've found it to be such a smooth process. We hope that you continue to enjoy using Selo olive oil for years to come.
I am so grateful to be able to get real olive oil!!! Selo is delicious. I thoroughly enjoy soaking good bread in it with a little salt. I also noticed that my soups and stews taste much better with Selo in them. And if course I use it on my steamed vegetables...yum. Etc! ☺️
Thank you for your kind words! We are so glad you enjoy using Selo olive oil and find that it enhances the flavor of your food. We hope you continue to enjoy using Selo olive oil and recommend it to your friends.
This review is from a Mediterranean person who grew up in the 80ties in the Mediterranean region, before tampering with, or cheating by mixing olive oil with other oils was prevalent. Growing up, I remember how the olive oil my mother used to get from the farmers in the village tasted. Selo Olive Oil tastes exactly the same. You will not find anything like it at the store. Highly recommend Selo.
Thank you for this review! We are very excited to offer our customers such an authentic and pure product.
This definitely changed my perspective on olive oil. Usually don't give reviews but had to say something here
Unfortunately with shipping and customs to Canada, I can't justify another purchase. Hope market expands here because I love the product. I felt like I had to try it once and it was well worth the impulse buy
Thank you for your feedback! We are glad to hear that you like our product and that it has made a positive impact on your life. Unfortunately, due to the high shipping and customs cost, we cannot justify a purchase for people in Canada. We hope that the market will expand in Canada so that more people can enjoy our quality olive oil!
I highly recommend Selo! We have been returning customers for years and usually buy 3-6 bottles each order. Exceptional flavour and customer service!
Thank you for your review! We're so happy to hear that you've been enjoying Selo olive oil for years and that you continue to come back for more. We hope you'll continue to enjoy our products and recommend them to your friends.
