Green Istria

Creativity and Hedonism in an Istrian Vineyard

This year, take your business team on a team building you have never experienced. See you at the vineyard!

In Istria, premium wine is more than a drink - it's a lifestyle. The temple of such a lifestyle are vineyards sprawling on the green slopes throughout Istria. There, the traditional way of life is intertwined with the world-class gastronomic knowledge. The Istrian vineyard is a place where nature meets inspiration. Therefore, it is an ideal setting for creating new memories with your colleagues.

The quality of Istrian wines is complemented by the tradition of production and the distinctiveness of the soil - terra rossa in coastal areas and white soil in the continental part of Istria. That is why wine lovers regard Istria as a true treasury of flavours they always come back to.

The most famous and common wine is Istrian Malvasia, characterized by a refined aroma and fresh flavour that complements seafood dishes. Teran and Refosco are old and indigenous Istrian red wines. Their dark ruby colour, vibrant fruit aromas and intensive flavours go well with meat dishes. Many Istrian wine connoisseurs appreciate Muscat for its golden colour, wild carnation scent and exceptional aroma.

Wine roads lead to a stronger team spirit  
Istria has a network of wine roads meandering from cellar to cellar, from vineyard to vineyard. One of these cellars and vineyards can become the venue for your next team building.

If your team members are inclined towards hedonism, visit Istria at any time of the year. Walk through the vineyard, take a group photo with picturesque hills in the background, and then devote yourselves to discovering the secrets of your host's wine cellar.

Test your palate by playing a wine guessing game - this will be a good starting point for a more relaxed conversation with your colleagues.

Wine will make you merry and ready to further explore the rich gastronomic offer of Istria. Enjoy the products prepared by your host, the winegrower, or visit one of the taverns where hospitality and delicious homemade food are part of tradition.

If your team is in the mood for a more active vacation, the vineyard is also the right place for team building. Come to Istria in the autumn and spend a day harvesting wine grapes with the locals. After the hard work in the vineyard, every wine drop you taste in the cellar will be sweeter.
Return to nature, indulge in pleasures and collect inspiration for new business challenges.
