Wine tour - The very best of Istria
This wine tour is dedicated to those who wish to discover the quiddity of the wine making heritage in Istria.

During this whole day tour you will visit three wineries where you will try fresh and aged wines made from indigenous, Istrian grape varieties but also blends with international grape varieties. In all wineries you will be accompanied by an expert guide or owner from each winery. Each winery is special and represents different approach to wine making. With wines always go local treats and snacks. You will also have a guided tour through wine cellar to get familiar with the wine production.

You will also visit artistic town of Grožnjan and eat dinner in the best, family owned restaurant offering traditional and local dishes with modern touch.

I include only the best wineries and restaurants in my programs. Wine tastings in wineries are scheduled by special arrangement and you are not obligated to buy wines in wineries, only if you wish to.

A SAMPLE OF WINE, A SAMPLE OF ISTRIA - A SHORT BUT FULFILLED PROGRAM
The idea of half-day tour is to present wines from two different wineries for those who are limited with time. You will have opportunity to try fresh and aged wines made from indigenous grape varieties but also blends with international grape varieties. One winery is young, second one has long tradition but both wineries are among the best in Croatia with international recognition and international awards.

During half day program you would have two professional wine tastings with an expert guide from each winery with rich, local snacks, you would visit wine cellars and experience the beauty of Istria. Transportation and guiding are included in price.

I include only the best wineries and restaurants in my programs. Wine tastings in wineries are scheduled by special arrangement and you are not obligated to buy wines in wineries, only if you wish to.
