    Wine Tasting at the Picturesque Kozlovic Winery

Wine Tasting at the Picturesque Kozlovic Winery

  • City: Rovinj
  • Duration: Approximately 1-2 hours in length, depending on the option selected.

Overview

Istria is known as 'the Tuscany of Croatia,' with its never-ending rolling hills and valleys, filled with wineries and olive groves. This tour will take you to the valley of Vale, near Momjan, to the Kozlovic Winery. This winery bears the family name of the owners that are the fourth generation of winemakers, making them one of the oldest in the region.

The guided tour of the wine cellar with its cutting-edge equipment will show you everything about the wine production process, from the grape processing phase to the final wine nurturing. There will start from the oldest part of the cellar built in 1904, and see how all the elements of architecture, ecology, and passion come together to create some of the best Istrian wines, like Malvazija, Muskat, and Teran.

This is a complete wine tasting experience: you will begin with observing the wine and examine its color and texture, get a detailed description of the wine and the vineyards it comes from, and incorporate all you have learned in your tour, all while overlooking the lush grounds and the medieval castle of Momjan. Typical Istrian delights will be served to accompany the tasting, like cured prosciutto, cheese, and other finger foods.

Depending on the amount of time you have available and your interest in certain parts of the process, we have five different tasting options:

MEET THE ESTATE:
This tasting focuses on the new part of the winery, built in 2012. With over a million Euro investment, the owners brought in cutting-edge technology to Istria in order to improve their wine-making procedures and bring their wines to the highest quality levels by world-class standards. Full tour of the winery will be followed by tasting of five different wines in their new wine bar, overlooking the vineyards, paired with light food from local farms. This tasting is 1.5 hours long and hosted by Kozlovic wine ambassadors.

TASTE ISTRIA:
Istria is a region that boasts three indigenous grape varieties, all completely different - Malvazija, Teran, and Muskat. This tasting will be conducted in the modern wine bar of the Kozlovic winery, overlooking the slopes of Valle. The wine ambassadors will tell you a bit more about each grape, as well as their olive oil and grappa production. Wines will be paired with local foods and the total duration is approximately 1 hour.

TASTE KOZLOVIC:
In this tasting, you will try fresh Malvazija and Teran, aromatic Muskat and refreshing Rose. Beside indigenous varieties the wine ambassadors will offer you a crispy bland of Sauvignon blanc and Malvazia – Valle. A single vineyard – Santa Lucia – gives two premium labels: Santa Lucia Malvazia and Santa Lucia Noir. If you prefer sweet wines, you can try desert wine from Muscat grapes and aromatized wine from Teran. Wines are paired with food from small farms and local producers. Total duration of tasting is approximately 1 hour.

FROM PAST TO PRESENT:
This tasting will start in the new Kozlovic winery, but you will travel back in time to 1904 with a visit to the old family's winery to learn more about the history of winemaking in Istria. In the 'old' cellar, you will be treated with local foods paired with 7 different types of wines. You will be hosted by the winery owners personally and the tour takes approximately 2 hours. This tour is available on request.

MALVASIA LIBRARY TASTING:
Malvasia is Istria's favorite and most famous grape. In this tasting, you will be hosted by the owners themselves during a 1.5 hour tasting of 7 different Malvasia wines, from current releases to vintages, paired with light dishes made from locally grown ingredients. This tour is available on request.
