Great news from the United States! Istria has been listed among 10 top wine travel destinations in 2015 according to Wine Enthusiast, one of the leading magazines in the world about wine. This flattering recognition has been awarded by Mike DeSimone and Jeff Jensenn. The two known as the World Wine Guys have visited Istria three times so far, the last time in July 2013. During their stays on the Istrian peninsula, they were given an opportunity to learn about Istrian indigenous wine varieties and wines such as Istrian Malvasia, Teran, Merlot and others. They also provide advice as to where to stay and what to visit as well as where to taste the best wines.
With regard to this exceptional honour and ranking among the TOP 10, the president of the Croatian Sommelier Club Mr. Franko Lukež said the following: ‘When the esteemed American Wine Enthusiast, with its 35 year long experience of where wine lives, ranks you among top ten wine tourist destinations in 2015 along with regions such as the Italian Piedmont, Spanish Galicia or French Loire and Rhône, then all the wine producers from the region – Istria in this case – have a big reason to celebrate. And, not only them! Wine should never be viewed without food. A glass of good wine is a natural ending of every good meal. The most exciting wine destinations are therefore locations offering excellent wines to accompany superb dishes: All is played out in glittering restaurant, rustic taverns or original farm households located in magnificent landscape. It is nice to be recognized by wine enthusiasts!’
