My husband and i are just back from a great holiday in Rovinj. We booked at very late notice with our tour guide Agnieszka, who was so kind to fit us in to her busy schedule.
She picked us up at our hotel ,and from the moment we met her, we knew we were in for brilliant treat, as her knowledge and history of Istria just blew us away! She made us feel so welcome,and her love and passion for the wines of this region really rubbed off us.
We visited two wineries with her that day , both equally as good as each other. Not only did we get to see the wineries, but also the beautiful countryside of Istria, you would never get to see these places yourself , as they are hidden gems tooked away in those rolling hills , they are just sublime!
We visited the first winery Benvenuti, the setting was just idealic. It looked down into a lush green valley of vines ,a patchwork quilt of different shades of green and out over to a little picturesque village on a hill called Motovun ,breathtaking! We were shown all around this amazing property ,and then brought into a tasting room , were we tried many wines , and had some Istrian cheeses , hams, breads , it was great !
Our second winery was called Matosevic , another great property, in such a pretty environment also. We sat this time outside in the garden with the sun shining down on us , shaded by the near trees in this tranquil oasis ! Great information again from our wine guide , who really drew us yet again with her vast knowledge and enthusiasam and kept us captivated that time just flew !
Agnieszka , was so kind to us, she actually drove us past the beautiful Lim Fiord,stopped to show us it and we took some photos .She is an excellent tour guide as she went above and beyond in doing this for us and also to arrange the day at such short notice. We cannot recommend this tour enough ,we are also planning on doing another tour at some stage on our return to Rovinj, as there are many different choices of wineries also full day tours and half day tours etc.. so it can suit everyone , it can even be tailormade to suit your specific requests, you are spoiled for choice, and believe me they are worth every penny!
Agnieszka is a brilliant guide,excellent knowledge and most of all a lovely person, that after minutes in her company you feel you have known her forever ! Our time booked with her was the highlight of our trip, she gave us precious memories of Istria, its countryside, its wines ,and the warm hearted people will stay forever in our hearts, while we dream of our return to what in our opinion was Paradise !

Lovely day and INSANELY good lunch. We did the intensive wine tour and went to 3 vineyards. They feed you at each and every one (they use the word "light," but they gave us 2 plates of prosciutto and a loaf of bread and olives and and and and...) and the wines are so delicious! We bought bottles to stow away in our luggage and are so glad we did-- the wines at the source are CHEAP, especially compared to ordering a bottle of wine at a restaurant. Great day. Great guide. The only thing I would say is that we were extremely bloated and full by the end of "Intensive" wine tour, so I would probably recommend the leisure program if you, like us, do not have will power or moderation tendencies.

My aunt and I took the 'wine and truffles' tour - and it was fantastic. Agnieszka was a wonderful guide and took us to three local wineries where we tried the local wines and were able to spend time with the producers. It was very laid back- and extremely enjoyable. And the lunch? The best food we had the entire month we traveled Europe. If I could give this tour 100 stars I would!

Wow, where do I begin? We had a fantastic day with Aggie and Nada! My husband and I were picked up at 8:30am at our apartment and were whisked away for a day of wonderful wines, delicious local food, beautiful views and great conversation.
We loved all three wineries that we visited, each special in their own way. While others were also there tasting, we felt quite special as we were taken on a private tour of each winery, where the host took time out of their day to our answer questions and show us their cellars. We were then treated to superb wine tastings, presented with cheeses, charcuterie, organic olive oil, and hand made chocolates. The wines were all top quality and we bought several bottles to enjoy at home.
Aggie went out of her way to be sure we were enjoying our day, stopping at a tiny undiscovered hill town, arranging a fantastic lunch which included truffles and local specialties. She was very professional, yet friendly and fun, and so very thoughtful with little details to make our day unforgettable. We're so happy we chose Istria Wine Tours, truly a highlight of our vacation!

We took a wine tour with Agnieszka of Istria Wine Tours, and it was the highlight of our stay in Croatia. "Aggie" picked the four of us up right outside our apartment door in Old Town Rovinj. We picked up another couple just outside of town and started out on our adventure. Aggie was the perfect guide - she spoke excellent English and was very passionate and knowledgeable about wine and Croatia. Because we were running early for our first winery tour, we stopped at a lookout over the beautiful Lim Fjord. The first winery tour, like all the others was wonderful. Each winery was different and seemed to have been selected for their interesting characteristics, and the wine at all was delicious. After the first tour, Aggie took us to the hilltop town of Groznjan where we spent an hour exploring, shopping and enjoying a glass of wine. Our trip included two more wonderful wineries and a delicious "early dinner" at a konaba. The food was amazing (pasta with truffles, beef from a local breed of cow, etc., etc.) and the wine was delicious. The price of the food (the dinner and food at all three wineries) was included in the tour. A most informative, enjoyable and delicious day at a very reasonable price, and I can't recommend it any more highly!

We booked the half-day wine tour visiting Benvenuti in Kaldir and Matosević in Krunčići. Our guide Agnieszka picked us up in Rovinj at 9:30 and we spent the entire day together. She was very helpful and informative, sending information in advance over email and had great knowledge about the wines and vineyard culture once we arrived at each winemaker. It was great to spend the day with a local who was so passionate about wine and could suggest other wineries to go to on our own after the tour.

The tour itself was very comprehensive and we enjoyed visiting 2 boutique family-run wineries. Each winery had multiple glasses of wine along with small snacks of cheese, meat, and olive oil. In between each visit we also stopped at scenic view points to take pictures of towns such as Motovun and Pazin. Agnieszka was helpful throughout the day answering questions. Even after our tour we kept in touch and she went above and beyond by helping us to figure out how to bring a few bottles of wine back home with us. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone who is interested in wine and seeing the surrounding areas of Istria.

The Intensive Tour was an absolutely wonderful way to experience Istria. Agnieszka is a marvelous guide and truly lovely person. She is caring, knowledgeable, and helpful. I can't say enough good about her and her tour. She took three of us on a whole day tour. I was traveling solo and was able to join a delightful couple for the tour. The wines were all of the highest quality and each winery provided us food to accompay our tastings. The restaurant she took us to for lunch served us an incredible lunch. The scenery along the way was beautiful. If you want a truly enjoyable day with a wine expert and all around wonderful person, take one of Agnieszka's tours. Well worth it.

My husband and I joined another couple for a great day of wine tours with Mihaela.
We first visited Misal winery. This winery makes only sparkling wines. We were able to visit the bottling area and were taught about the process of making the sparkling wine. The next winery was a small family winery, Clio. This was a bonus winery as we were meeting with another couple and Agnieszka, Mihaela's tour guide partner. We then visited the beautiful hilltop town of Groznjan. We were able to wander around the small streets filled with artist shops. Our next stop was Kabola where wines are aged in amphorae. Lunch was a 4 course feast at local restaurant. Our final stop was Kozlovic, with beautiful views of the surrounding area.
At each winery we were given full explanations of the wine making process, fed delightful snacks, and treated as treasured guests. Mihaela gave interesting explanations and commentary throughout the day. The van was very comfortable and Mihaela was a great driver.
Mihaela and Agnieszka were wonderful and knowledgeable tour guides and we appreciated the opportunity to experience Istria with them.

We took a whole day tour called Istrian Corners. It was great! Truly wonderful experience! Agnieszka, who runs Istria Wine Tours, took us to two fabulous wineries. One was more a boutique one and the second was one of few major Istrian producers. Wineries visits included educational tours, tastings (very generous tastings!) as well as spectacular views of the Istrian countryside. The tour also includes visits of some cool places in Istria like a charming town of Groznjan. Finally, Agnieszka took us to a hidden-gem type of restaurant where we were offered some spectacular local food!
Great experience overall, but what makes it so special is the host. She just takes outstanding care of her guests. We needed a car seat for our son, we have certain dietary restrictions, etc. - she just took care of everything. Besides, she's an excellent and knowledgeable guide - she gave us a brief introduction of the Istrian history as well as a phenomenal wine enthusiast. Thank you, Agnieszka! We highly recommend Istria Wine Tours.
