IQ - Istrian Quality

"It is well known that the ancient giants were, among other things, connoisseurs of wine. In turning to this hedonistic era, every man discovers within himself pieces of that period, fits them together to form his life story. Inspired by the past and enriched by the progress of the modern age, unprecedented work is being done which leaves track on our senses, especially on our palate. A young urban winemaker happened to be in this story by pure chance, when he enrolled in the university course in enology in Poreč. He has transferred all his knowledge about this creative and dynamic art to his vineyard and then to his cellar, embarking thus on the adventure filled with challenges. Anyway, the education is not enough, because the goal of the mission is to unlock all the potential of the red soil and adjust a novelty or an untapped feature to the Istrian tradition, culture and agricultural heritage. It all began in a small vineyard under modest circumstances. We soon started thinking about the preparation of the soil prior to planting, so that we dispose of 5 hectares of vineyard today, which produces young Malvasia, Chardonnay, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon, all eager to see their fruits turn into exquisite pleasure. The young age and the passionate desire to accomplish quality results have produced fine and elegant wines that acquire a special Mediterranean note, yet preserving their original character. Thanks to good people and constant commitment, a tiny idyll has turned into a success story which represents only the beginning of a far-reaching tradition."
