My wife and I returned from Croatia this week. We spent a few days in Istria, wanting to explore the region's vineyards. Prior to the trip, I reached out to This Is Istria. Alen was very communicative and provided a flexible and affordable itinerary, including a pick-up and drop-off at our hotel in Rovinj.

Alen organized such an amazing experience. We visited three gorgeous vineyards, met a winemaker, and reveled in the incredible Istrian countryside. Alen went above and beyond: getting us extra tastes, sharing his deep knowledge of the area, offering to help pay for wines when the credit card machine was down, and even meeting us for an additional drink off the clock!

If learning more about Istrian wine and enjoying a truly special experience is on the list for your next trip, I highly suggest This Is Istria for a wine tour.

Wine tour of Istria with our new friend Alen of #thistria.
This is Istria. Visited DAMJANIĆ in Poreč, beautiful family heritage wines, whites and reds to be very drinkable, affordable and delicious. Then on to Hrvatska, to visit KOZLOVIĆ WINERY. A most beautiful setting with amazing array of wines. Met our new best friends from Saudi Arabia! Next onto some very late lunch (5:00pm) at Enoteca Degrassi Istrian Food and Wine in Savudrija. Fantastic food paired with aged wines from the family reserve cellar. My best culinary description of the food and wine is YUM. Thank you to Alen and team for the great experience and being a very gracious host.

Alen planned the most amazing day for us! He picked us up very close to our Airbnb and took us to three wineries where we sampled about 15 wines total and lots of food. He was so friendly and funny, and answered all of our questions about wine and the history of the region of Istria and Croatia in general. It was one of the best days of our trip. Definitely recommend!!

Alen is fantastic! Whatever you book with ‘this is istria’ you won’t be disappointed. We did the full day wine tour (3 wineries), also including some olive oil tasting, and ended with fresh truffle pasta somewhere we’d never venture to ourselves normally. Totally worth it and would book again without a second thought!

Our day started really well, Alen was a knowledgable and friendly guide.
First vineyard visited, lovely wines and very good varied tasting selection.
On the tour we booked we had been promised, on the website a three course homemade Istrian meal at one of the vineyards we visited. The price of 225 euros each for two of us, reflected this element of the tour in our view. As the vineyard wine tastings where generous and the wines varied, we expected a taste pairing with the meal. I think actually less wines and a better selection of foods to enhance the wines would be better.We went to enjoy and learn, not to just drink large quantities. Maybe others don't?
However on our trip no three course meal was provided, just two more small cheese and ham platters, one with a few tomato bruschetta. This was very disappointing and not as advertised.
It was a real shame, because the vineyards visited were lovely.
I would advise anyone booking this trip to check with Alen as to wether a three course pairing meal, as advertised on his website, is going to be happening on their visit to avoid any disappointment.

Arlen knows the region through and through, and grew up with some of the winemakers in Istria. He knows the wine, always good for a story and never foregoes an opportunity for the winemakers to show of something new and different that may not even be for sale yet.

This man and winetour is a gem, and if you have too good of a time and forget your bag at one of the wineries, he will deliver it back to you the following day, Free of charge.

I'll come visit another time thats for sure!

We visited four excellent Vineyards. All tastings where with fantastic food pairing. Our guide Alen hade very good knowledge of Istrian Vineyards and wine making over all. Also both lunches were very impressive. Highly recommended tour if you are interested in wine and you will also have a very nice tour around the Istrian country side.

This is a very personalised tour with a fantastic host. Alen is passionate about the area, the history and the wine and food. We got to visit some amazing smaller independent wine producers (lovely families) who took the time to welcome and talk to us (Damjanic and Coronica). The wonderful cheese, meats and breads provided sustenance along the way and the experience was founded off with a beautiful meal at Hrast in Porec. The quality of the wine throughout the day was fantastic and we felt very well looked after. Alen- Here’s to ‘all day, every day’- we will be back!
