Rovinj wine tour
Rovinj is not only the most romantic Istrian coastal town whose streets get overcrowded with tourist in July and August. Its narrow streets and countryside hide many small wineries managed by passionate people that produce rebellious, uncommon and curious wines. Think of thick, oily, Sherry like 15%vol Malvazija considered by some sommeliers to be the best orange wine in Istria. Or a curious red blend that includes Montepulciano d’Abruzzo grown on Rovinj’s red soil vineyards near the sea and aged in a cellar carved in stone. Satisfy your sweet tooth with a dessert wine made of Malvazija dried for several month on straw.
It is also the only EatIstria wine tour that may include visit of organic and/or biodynamically managed vineyards and winery (depending on the availability of the winemaker). The tour also includes lunch in a off-the-beaten-path family tavern serving traditional Istrian dishes.
