Food and Wine

Istria is a culinary treasure trove.

Some of the best white and black truffles grow here (Motovun).Artistria Truffles

A temperate climate, plentiful sea life and a strong culinary tradition combine to produce  fresh, Mediterranean flavours with an eastern twist. In Istria’s towns and villages, bustling markets are crammed with fresh produce such as wild asparagus and fennel, sage and thyme, sweet-smelling tomatoes and peppers, are sold directly by farmers.

Seafood is Artristria Winea speciality across Croatia and even the smallest local restaurants are likely to serve up a fresh selection of oysters, octopus, langoustines, crab and squid. Away from the coast, simple restaurants serve traditional dishes such as bobiči, a casserole of beans, ombolo, pork loin and Istrian pršut, a specially cured Istrian ham.

artistria holiday makers shouldn’t miss the chance to sample Istria’s fantastic wines, produced from the locally grown Malvasia and Teran grapes – that are only available to try in this area of the world.
