sample of Istrian Gastronomy in one day... Živjeli!
Istrian Peninsula, first of all as multicultural-multistate region and historic place, also offers a lots of ecquisite food & dining. . . Istria also means more than 2300 years of cultivation of both wine grapes and olive trees which still exist and develop pretty much lately by around 200 Wineries and 80-100 Olive Oil producers, constantly building up their quality and reputation.

Matt was amazing. He pulled together a custom 2 day winery tour with less than one week's notice, no easy feat in Istria in August. Besides the itinerary he gave us a very informative and entertaining commentary on Istrian culture, history, and wine. Highly recommend.
