Istria – an enchanting Mediterranean peninsula surrounded by the clear blue sea - offers numerous cultural, historical and natural sights and unforgettable views from hilly villages, and hides a wealth of tradition and taste.
Istrian cuisine is a true reflection of historical and geographical characteristics of the peninsula and the result of a mixture of different traditions with dishes based on wild plants, aromatic herbs, seasonal vegetables, seafood and olive oil.
An invitation to explore and taste values of this blue and green refuge lies in the smile of the Istrian host, in the products of his hard-working hands, in the nature which seduces with its beauty and in the lively past that emerges from the rocks and lumps of earth. Once you're here, horizons are expanding, senses are deepening, tension is gone, harmony is restored, and new experiences and friendships become permanent.
Istrian people have always been devoted to the wine grape cult; wine is a sacred thing here, the necessity and love, the art of living. The most famous wine is Istrian malmsey, with a refined aroma and fresh taste that complements the dishes made from seafood.
Black wines teran and refošk are old and autochthonous Istrian wines. With their dark ruby colour, lively fruit aromas and intense taste they perfectly blend with meat dishes. Many connoisseurs of Istrian wines point out Muscat wine because of its golden colour, scent of wild carnations and extraordinary aroma.
The IQ (Istrian Quality) designation on Malvasia wine is intended for identifying high-quality products made from Istrian Malvasia grapes.
