Where The Wines Come From

Istria

Nestled along the stunning coastline of the Adriatic Sea, Istria is a hidden gem in the world of natural winemaking. This enchanting peninsula, shared by Croatia, Slovenia, and Italy, boasts a rich history of winemaking dating back thousands of years. In recent years, Istria has emerged as a hub for artisanal winemakers dedicated to sustainable viticulture and minimal intervention practices. Indigenous grape varieties such as Malvazija Istarska and Teran thrive in Istria's diverse terroir, which ranges from limestone hills to coastal plains. Winemakers here embrace organic and biodynamic farming methods, working in harmony with the land to produce grapes of exceptional quality and character. In the cellar, minimal intervention is the guiding principle, with spontaneous fermentations and aging in neutral vessels allowing the true expression of the grapes and terroir to shine through. The resulting natural wines from Istria are a reflection of the region's pristine beauty, with their vibrant flavors, elegant textures, and a sense of place that captures the essence of this enchanting corner of the Mediterranean.
