istria-villageSitting at a crossroads of various European kingdoms and countries throughout history, Istria has adopted pieces from many cultures while still having a taste all its own. Given its Mediterranean location, it’s not surprising that wine cultivation has been ongoing for thousands of years. Two main grapes, Istrian Malvazija and Terran now dominate the wine scene, offering up a unique taste of this far-western peninsula of Croatia.
