Yes, there is wine in Istria. Really good wine. It is grown here since the Romans arrived in Pula 2000 years ago. The Emperor himself knew about wine from the Roman province called “Histria”.
Nowadays, a new generation of winemakers are rethinking traditional Istrian winemaking methods of their grandfathers by introducing different new styles and approaches. One of the newest hypes are the organic wines. However, at the three wineries you will visit, there are different sorts of wines you are going to try. From young and fresh wines, to aged, and sometimes one of those “organic” wines.
Don’t expect the big and the known wineries. Rather imagine yourself drinking finest Istrian wines in a small cellar at a wooden table. Or while sipping a pearly Malvazija you are listening to nature because you are in the middle of Istrian nowhere.
