Away from all tourist spots in Istria, between traditional stone houses lies a village in the dry Istrian savannah. Goats are chewing grass and white long-haired guardian dogs are lying in the grass with half-opened eyes like lazy lions. At the Štancija (Istrian ranch) you will not only find a glass of thick Teran (dark local red wine) but also an awarded artisan cheese production. Join us for a world-class cheese tasting in a simple village atmosphere.

First, you will be picked up at your accommodation. Then, you will drive into places in Istria nobody knows and which are completely off the radar of the usual tourist roads. Villages so small that nobody is visiting them and only a few people know what stories hide behind those old medieval stones. Afterward, you drive to the Artisan Cheese Farm. There you will be welcomed by the family. You’ll meet around 200 goats. Then, you will get a tour literally inside the artisan cheese production to see how high-class cheese is made. Now it’s getting serious: after visiting the cheese production it is time to sit down at a wooden table to get a real Istrian brunch with homemade bread, seasonal fruits, and several kinds of cheese. Don’t forget to get a glass (or two) of the excellent biodynamic wines we prepared for you. Happy, deeply relaxed and with a satisfying taste in your mouth you return to your accommodation. Tour duration will be tailored to your needs.
