Are you a passionate red wine enthusiast? Or have you ever wanted to know how much wine is influenced by terroir and how much by the winemaker who inevitably leaves in bottle its personal touch? In both cases this is a wine tour for you! In the area surrounding Poreč, on rolling hills south of Mirna river valley and east of Adriatic coast, thrive vineyards of five renowned Istrian winemakers – Geržinić, Cossetto, Rossi, Radovan and Damjanić. Their red wines, rich and with plenty of character, are one of the best reds you can find in Istria. As expert claim, this quality is owed to Terra Rossa, intensely red soil comprised of mineral-rich clay that is adored by red wine varietals, and to marine breeze that chills down the grapes even during hottest summer nights.
The tour includes visit of three wineries (out of five mentioned below). We’ll have a break during a light lunch in Konoba Bačva near Višnjan. The owner of the konoba will show us the tedious procedure of preparing baccala’ al bianco – dried cod spread. This delicacy is a delicate fish paté that is traditionally eaten on Christmas Eve with posutice – rhomobiodal homemade pasta.
