• Discover Istria: A Local’s Guide

    After experiencing the charm of our PERVINO winery, many visitors inquire about what else to explore in Istria. Drawing from our local perspective and years of hosting guests, we’ve curated a list of must-see attractions to enhance your holiday experience in our beloved region.

    Novigrad: Where Tradition Meets Tranquility

    A definite highlight to visit before or after your winery excursion is the center of Novigrad. Situated just a short 5-minute drive away (or a pleasant bike ride through forested paths and olive groves), Novigrad retains the quaint allure of a small fishing village amidst its tourist offerings. Within the city center, don’t miss the historic town walls, the Church of St. Pelagius and St. Maximus, the Lapidarium Museum, and the scenic Belveder loggia, perfect for Instagram-worthy shots. For a breathtaking backdrop of Novigrad, head to the sports and recreational zone at Karpinjan, among locals known as “Pineta”. Also worth a visit is the Benedictine monastery in Dajla, with its own Istrian version of the “Gates of Heaven”. And don’t forget to capture the magic of a Novigrad sunset, a sight that promises to leave you spellbound.

    Conclude your tour at Mandrač port, a quintessential symbol of Novigrad’s Mediterranean charm and fishing heritage. Here, amidst the ambiance of a hundred-year-old tradition, indulge in another glass of your favorite Pervino wine at our Mandrač wine bar and shop. Late afternoon is an ideal time to savor the experience, as the quiet port gradually transforms with the return of fishermen and the onset of a spectacular sunset.

    Beyond Borders: Exploring Istria’s Treasures

    For those eager to explore further Istria, we recommend nearby towns, each with its own unique charm. Lose yourself in the medieval streets of Grožnjan, a haven for artists and dreamers alike, or climb to the hilltop town of Motovun for breathtaking vistas of the surrounding countryside. Explore the historic wonders of Poreč, Rovinj, and Pula, where ancient architecture meets vibrant culture at every turn. For a quieter escape, consider discovering the hidden gem of Svetvinčenat.

    A Culinary Journey: Savoring Istria’s Bounty

    As you explore the region, don’t overlook the exceptional Mediterranean gastronomy. Novigrad’s famous Mediterranean Scallop, grilled to perfection with extra virgin olive oil and sea salt, pairs perfectly with a glass of fresh Malvazija Istarska. Indulge in Istrian prosciutto, truffles, and fuži pasta, but exercise discernment in choosing restaurants. Seek out family-owned restaurants for an authentic culinary experience, as we understand the importance of upholding family reputation.

    Embrace the Essence of Istria

    Lastly, keep your senses keen as you traverse Istria. The true magic lies in its charming villages and untouched landscapes, where vineyards and olive groves intertwine with nature, promising unforgettable moments throughout your Istrian adventure.

    We trust these recommendations will enhance your holiday in Istria, providing a glimpse into the region’s rich tapestry of culture, cuisine, and natural beauty.

  • Transportation Options & Wine Tasting Adventures

    To visit our winery, it’s essential to arrange your own transportation. If you want to experience a wine tasting, Our recommendation is to designate a sober driver to ensure everyone’s safety. However, we understand that some may not want to miss out on the wine tasting experience during their holiday. In such cases, we offer several suggestions.

    If you’re located in Novigrad or its surrounding area, you can opt to travel by bike. You can either bring your own bike from home or rent one in Novigrad. There are several rental options available, including carbon road bikes, E-bikes, and touring bikes. Our winery is conveniently situated close to the bike trail O8: NOVIGRAD – FROM THE SEA TO THE VINEYARDS AND OLIVE GROVES. This scenic route begins at the historic town center of Novigrad, then follows the coastline to Mareda. From there, it leads through picturesque vineyards and olive groves, passing through Fiorini, Kršin, Bužinija, Paolija, and Velika Stancija. When you reach Velika Stancija, you’re just a stone’s throw away from our winery, so be sure to stop for refreshments. More information about this trail can be found here: Istria Bike Trails. Turn your visit into a biking and wine tasting day trip for a memorable experience.

    The convenience of taking a taxi is also a viable option. However, it’s worth noting that during the summer season, delays can occur, leading to potential disappointment. Therefore, it’s advisable to call ahead and book your taxi in advance to ensure a smooth experience.

    Another option is the Novigrad Wine Trail, offering a unique wine tasting experience without worrying about transportation. Guests gather at the tourist train station in Novigrad harbor and visit three wineries, including ours, where you can sample three of our wines paired with local finger foods. This is a group experience, and there’s a limited time allotted at each winery. However, it’s an excellent opportunity to taste a variety of local wines in a single day. Tickets need to be purchased in advance, and the experience is available only once a week during specific times of the year.

This option allows you to enjoy the beautiful countryside, particularly ideal during the spring and fall seasons rather than on hot summer days.
