All meals are accompanied with excellent Istrian wines. Poreč Malvasia is recommended with seafood, Motovun Teran goes well with meat and pasta, while Momjan Mušakt is ideal for dessert. Istrian soup is a special delicacy.
The Istrians are proud of their quality wines: autochthonous Istrian Malvasia, White and Grey Pinot, Sauvignon and Chardonnay. The red wines include Red Teran, Burgundy, Merlot, Refoška, Cabernet and Hrvatica Rosé. The sweet Malvasia and red and white Muškat are among the most popular dessert wines. The entire peninsula has rich wine boutiques where you can both taste and buy wine as a nice souvenir from Istria.
The wine roads, included in the map of Istria, with wine cellars and small taverns, combine the offer of 109 winemakers. They have separate identifications for cellars with larger selections of wine, modern technology and awards and for village taverns with traditional winemaking.
