Collection: Piranske Soline

Just half an hour’s drive east-southeast from Trieste in northeastern Italy, the Piran saltpans are situated in a national park and nature preserve of southern Piran, on Slovenia’s Adriatic coast. These saltpans, comprising an interconnected series of shallow, lagoon-like basins, are where the pristine, salt-rich waters of the northern Adriatic are allowed to enter, evaporate, and be hand-harvested. The Piran saltpans are among the longest-functioning artisan saltpans in Europe, providing healthy, flavorful salt for over seven centuries.

During our research in Slovenia we found that these salts were magnificent, at every price point. Their sweet flavor derives from high mineral content and low levels of otherwise bitter Sodium Chloride (NaCl). Of special note: Piranske Soline’s highest quality salt, known as ‘Salt Flowers’ (wordplay involving description of the delicate, flower-like structure of each ‘grain’) literally melts into food.
