Truffle Days 2018

When Istria is taken over by autumn tones, its landscapes gleam in hundreds of shades of yellow, orange and red. From the top of the hill, this autumn patchwork is watching majestically over by Motovun, a medieval town overlooking the Motovun forest, the River Mirna and its stunning valley.

In October, a one-day exhibition and tasting of Teran wine and truffles Is held here.

Teran is an old Istrian variety, which dominated the Istrian peninsula around a hundred years ago and was first mentioned 600 years ago. Due to its strong and robust flavour, the autochthonous Istrian wine is delightful served with prosciutto, cheese and meat and game based dishes, while its ruby red colour perfectly blends with the autumn colours of Istria.
Besides Teran, the equal star of the festival is the truffle, an underground Istrian treasure without which today’s gourmand cuisine would be unimaginable.

The Festival brings together Istrian producers of Teran who want to give it the importance it deserves so that the culinary experience is complete with truffle dishes, of course, with emphasis on those that are best paired with Teran.
