Fabulous wine, fabulous day
We had an absolutely fabulous day on our wine tour. It was everything we hoped for and more! We went to 3 different wineries that were all fabulous, great wine and food and all so different from each other. It was interesting and engaging and everywhere was so generous with the wine and with their time! We also had a wonderful lunch, got some great photos and saw some beautiful countryside. It was a brilliant day I would really recommend this tour!

BOOK THIS TOUR!
Nov. 2021
This was such an amazing tour that helped us get to know Istria on a more personal level. Agi is full of knowledge, we enjoyed talking to her and she really made this an unforgettable experience. The wineries we visited were all beautiful and we enjoyed hearing the stories of how each got its start. We received a generous charcuterie board at each winery, thank goodness because there was so much wine at the first tasting! The four course meal was at the most adorable family restaurant. The location was beautiful and the food was outstanding. We are so glad that we booked this tour!

Amazing Guide Agnieszka, Top Quality Wineries, Incredible Lunch
Sep. 2018 • Solo
The Intensive Tour was an absolutely wonderful way to experience Istria. Agnieszka is a marvelous guide and truly lovely person. She is caring, knowledgeable, and helpful. I can't say enough good about her and her tour. She took three of us on a whole day tour. I was traveling solo and was able to join a delightful couple for the tour. The wines were all of the highest quality and each winery provided us food to accompay our tastings. The restaurant she took us to for lunch served us an incredible lunch. The scenery along the way was beautiful. If you want a truly enjoyable day with a wine expert and all around wonderful person, take one of Agnieszka's tours. Well worth it.

Outstanding wine tour!
Aug. 2018 • Couples
This is the best tour! Mihaela was an excellent guide. The wineries that we were brought to were amazing. They both gave us a private tour of their winery. The tastings were relaxed and very enjoyable. Each featured superb wines and a cheese board filled with bread, cheeses, meats, olives and fruits made in the neighboring farms. We went on the half day trip that was perfect in every way. Would highly recommend this tour!

Winery Tour - and more!
May 2018 • Family
Absolutely amazing and a great experience!! We took the half day winery trip with Agnieszka last week. Visited two fantastic wineries (absolutely no pressure at all to buy, in fact we had to ask in the first winery - but the wine was excellent - and also much cheaper than we saw in town afterwards). Agnieszka is not only is an expert on wine but she also took us on a tour of Istria on the way and we learned so many interesting things about the history of the area which we would never have known, with also some great photo opportunities too. Our tour was scheduled to end at half past two however due to time chatting with the winery staff (both wineries were excellent and again very knowledgeable) and then Agnieszka taking the time to show us the Lim Fjord on the way home, as we had not visited there, we had extra time learning about the region with some fantastic photo opportunities. Thank you Agnieszka! We look forward to visiting more wineries with you on our next trip to Rovinj. :)

Personalised wine trip that was both interesting and informative and friendly
Sep. 2017 • Couples
We chose the introductory wine experience because we are not big wine buffs. Agnieszka was friendly and knowledgeable about both the area and the local wine. We were picked up from the boat as we were staying on St Andrews island and dropped off at the end of the trip. We were taken inland and shown some of the countryside around Rovijn and visited two wineries. We had a tour and explanation of the process and then were invited to sample the wines produced at the winery along with the local produce.
The wine which we hadn't drunk before visiting Croatia is excellent and we went home with a few bottles. I must say it was one of the highlights of our visit to Croatia and well worth the expense. Thanks Agnieszka hope you enjoyed the bottle of wine

Fantastic Istria Wine Tour
Jun. 2017 • Friends
I recently went on the half day tour with 6 friends. Mihaela arranged a van for all of us, and took us on a wonderful excursion to two wineries, both of which were wonderful. We appreciated the different culture of the two wineries, but both had knowledgeable and personable guides and most importantly both establishments produced great wine as well as a meat and cheese plate. Before arriving home, Mihaela took a moment to take us to a beautiful vista of the land and sea. The whole day we felt welcomed, and all of he details were taken care of for us, so all we had to focus on was which of the fourteen wines we tried that we wanted to bring home!

Fantastic way to see the Istria countryside
Jun. 2017
My aunt and I took the 'wine and truffles' tour - and it was fantastic. Agnieszka was a wonderful guide and took us to three local wineries where we tried the local wines and were able to spend time with the producers. It was very laid back- and extremely enjoyable. And the lunch? The best food we had the entire month we traveled Europe. If I could give this tour 100 stars I would!

Wonderful day!
Apr. 2017 • Couples
We had a fabulous day exploring Istria with Mihaela on the "best of Istria" tour. She was friendly, and very knowledgable about not only the wines and vineyards, but local history also. We had enough food to last us for two days, and plenty of wine too!

A wonderful day, thoroughly recommended!

About as perfect as it gets
Sep. 2016 • Couples
Wow, where do I begin? We had a fantastic day with Aggie and Nada! My husband and I were picked up at 8:30am at our apartment and were whisked away for a day of wonderful wines, delicious local food, beautiful views and great conversation.
We loved all three wineries that we visited, each special in their own way. While others were also there tasting, we felt quite special as we were taken on a private tour of each winery, where the host took time out of their day to our answer questions and show us their cellars. We were then treated to superb wine tastings, presented with cheeses, charcuterie, organic olive oil, and hand made chocolates. The wines were all top quality and we bought several bottles to enjoy at home.
Aggie went out of her way to be sure we were enjoying our day, stopping at a tiny undiscovered hill town, arranging a fantastic lunch which included truffles and local specialties. She was very professional, yet friendly and fun, and so very thoughtful with little details to make our day unforgettable. We're so happy we chose Istria Wine Tours, truly a highlight of our vacation!
