Istrian Wine Roads

Created as roadmaps through the richness of Istrian wines, the wine roads represent routes along which you may find local producers’ cellars and taste and buy a few delicious drops.

In so doing the autochthonous cultivars Istrian malvazija and teran are excellent choice; however cellars have plenty of other cultivars as well. The signs along the road will guide you to the winemakers, although there are specialised guidebooks available at tourist points.

Taking advantage of their hospitality one may taste and buy excellent Istrian wines!
