Istria in Croatia, the new wine and food tour destination, says Sue Style

Share/like this post:

Plenty of people have found good reasons to travel in both Croatia and Slovenia — think unspoiled Adriatic coastlines, well-preserved Roman sites, medieval hilltop villages, rugged alpine scenery and wild mountain walks.

Now there’s another reason to add to these: both offer terrific wine travel possibilities.

– Sue Style on WineTravelGuides

Sue writes about her experiences travelling in Istria and tasting the Croatian wines and food on Wine Travel Guides. She talks about some of her favourite wine producers and all the different local products she has tasted. For example, the white grape variety malvasia, that is different from the malvasia found elsewhere. Here it is called, with reason, malvasia istriana. It makes fantastic, aromatic (but not over-powering), full-bodied white wines on the Istrian peninsula.

Teran is a red grape variety, a close relative to the Italian refosco, that makes very fresh wines with lots of red fruit character, actually not unlike the Californian zinfandels sometimes. Sue Style tasted some made by marino Markezic at his Kabola winery .

Sue has many more things to tell about the wines and foods from Istria and Croatia. Read all of her article on WineTravelGuides: Wine Travel in Istria, Croatia.

If you are interested to learn more about Croatian wines – and taste much more – then you should go there and experience it on-site! BKWine organises custom wine and food tours to Istria in Croatia. This autumn we have one tour that will also showcase the wine and gastronomy of Istria, including of course the mythical white truffles.
