Beautiful Winery

After leaving the main road, it takes 10min to arrive and the scenic view is amazing! The winery itself is nicely arranged. Most of the wines are available for tasting. The Malvasia and Merlot are really good!!

Beautiful Tasting and Experience

Visited here with a group of friends for a tasting on a beautiful afternoon. The experience was delightful, the staff incredibly friendly, the resident dogs cuddly, and the wine delicious. I highly recommend this on your Istrian Wine Tour.

One of our favourite vineyards
Jul 2017 • Friends
We have tried quite a few vineyards and wineries in Istria (don't want to say how many as its embarrassing!) and this one is up there as one of our favourites. Really friendly relaxed atmosphere, lovely location and really really great wines. Their malvazija is fabulous.

Fantastic Winery
May 2017 • Couples
What a great place to stop to enjoy some Istrian wine! On nice days you can sit outside and try samples of all the wines of Franc Arman while looking out over the Istrian hills to the sea. Their wine is unbelievably good and where else can you have such scenery, while you enjoy award winning wine, and chat with the owners about their craft?! Always a great stop when we visit.

Loved it
May 2017 • Friends
We loved our visit here. Our friend from the area drove us here. This place is family run, warm and welcoming. We tried all of their wines and enjoyed the aged Malvasia the most. They also have impressive red wine options. The spot is also very scenic and we could enjoy the sunset. Great people

Excellent wines, very nice tasting

Returning to Franc Arman Wines. Very high quality wines, excellent strategy of producing top quality and not looking into the massive production figures. The king of the list is Teran Barrique, something to take home also. As many bottles as the baggages can take. Certainly returning when back to Istria

Asked to leave!
Aug 2016 • Couples
I turned up here at around 4pm and was greeted by a gentleman who told me he didn't speak English. I asked if I could go inside and see the tasting room and he said yes. I wasn't too bothered about tasting wines and just wanted to buy some - but he effectively told me to leave before I got a chance!

The tasting room looked great - i think you pay a small fee to taste the wines but wasn't in there long enough to catch the exact cost. I also noticed that it said "no credit cards" so if you do get past security and are allowed to purchase then bring your kuna's with you.

Reading the other reviews - maybe I was just unlucky with my timings and maybe you should book ahead? Also, I accept I'm at fault for not speaking Italian or German - the chap indicated that he could converse in these languages but I couldn't.

Undeterred, I went to the Rossi winery which is literally just up the road and was met by a charming and knowledgable chap called Phillip. They are open all day until about 8pm. He was a superb host and I tried various wines and grappas. All absolutely excellent and I would have bought much more if I could have got it home easily. They also accept credit cards. So, this is a more than worthy alternative to Arman's.
