A wine story passed on from generation to generation
Wine Tomaz from Motovun is the true example of passing on wine tradition from generation to generation. Petar started the wine production, than Klaudio continued his legacy while the special attraction of this year's Vinistra wine exhibition was his son Antonio, who has won a gold medal for his famous Teran confirming the Tomaž family wines' importance on the Istrian wine producing scene.

A story about family wines where gin got involved
Did you think that this text will only be about wine? Of course it mostly is, but we find it necessary to point out another specific offer the Rossi family has in store for us. In addition to their successful types of Malvasia and Muscat, they courageously started producing a gin called Nostromo Wine gin, a homage to Istrian sailors with a scent of Malvasia.
