Who doesn’t love a glass or two of wine? Over the years I’ve enjoyed some fabulous bottles from Croatia – particularly dingač and teran. Croatia’s Malvasia region has a rich wine-making history. This history, as well as Croatia’s contemporary wine-making practices, are celebrated annually at the Vinistra festival held in Poreč.
The main objective of Vinistra is the promotion of Istrian wines, on domestic and international markets, and the education of wine consumers. This event has become internationally renowned with visitors to the exhibition sharing two loves – wine and gastronomy. Aside from wine, Vinistra also showcases the region’s fabulous olive oils and brandies. This year’s exhibition, the 18th of its kind, will be held between the 13th and 15th of May.
