Istria Wine & Walk on 16 May, 2015

When you come to our beautiful Banistra villas you will have everything at your disposal. If our offers for cooking school, wine tasting, olive oil tasting, truffle experience or even taking a bite on Istrian products are not enough, you can go on an Istria Wine & Walk tour on 16 May 2015.

All wine and nature enthusiasts can go on an adventure through northwestern Istria and meet 8 first-class Istrian winemakers during your 11 km walk. You will be able to taste their divine wines, complementing the experience with sheep cheese, wild asparagus and home-made pasta every 2 km.

Your tasting adventure will start in Buje as you board a minibus with your tasting glass, trail map, camera and heightened senses. The first stop will be the Santa Lucia vineyard from where you will start your leisurely walk along the sunny vine and olive terraces overlooking the sea. There will be plenty of breaks and opportunities to meet the winemakers and taste their exquisite wines and delicious food. You will also visit a lookout (ideal to zoom in on the Ćićarija tops and the sea), the Škarline Nature Park (a great spot for relaxing amidst a green canyon and its creeks), the original Tigor Gallery presenting an exhibition called "Teran" and 2 wine cellars (for another taste or two).
