Premium Wine Tasting Experience

We've hooked up with some of the top family-owned wineries in Istria for this afternoon wine tasting outing. The fun kicks off at the Kabola winery in Momjan, in hilly country. Owned by Markezic family since the 19th century, it has a long tradition of producing sparkling, semi-sweet and sweet wines. Nurse a glass of wine while you drink in the peaceful surroundings. And there's more. Our next stop is Cattunar winery, a lowland village not far from the coast. Owned by the Cattunar family, it specialises in local grape varieties such as Malvasia, Teran and Muscat Momjanski. After seeing the cellars, it's time to taste the goods.
