Anthelme Brillat Savarin
Istria has one of the most favourable positions for viniculture in this part of Europe, which dictates the exceptional quality of Istrian wines. The most prominent Istrian wines are Istrian Malvasia, Teran and Refošk and since we are located in the heart of Istria, this Wine List mostly contains Istrian wines. Besides typical sorts, such as Malvasia and Teran, indigenous to Istria, you can also find Muscatel Otonel such as the Momjan Muscat, very pleasing wine, perfect to accompany desserts served at the end of the meal. From the usual European white grape sorts very good matures Chardonnay, and from the red wine sorts, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. It is quite rare for any wine-growing region in Europe to be able to achieve top results in the production of both white and red wine sorts; undoubtedly, Istria has managed to do that.
