Wine has been a part of us for generations with a century and a half of history settling in it. Our wine cellars produce a wine improved with tradition, offering a taste of some genuine, autochthonous, Istrian types – Malvazija (Malmasey,Malvoisie ) Teran ( Terrano d´ Ístria) and Muškat Ruža ( Red Rose Muscat ), as well as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay and virgin olive oil.

Lavenda farm is a really pretty place.
During our two week stay in Zuzuci, just outside of Visnjan, we discovered this farm as advertised on Trip advisor as it was the only attraction in the area
We decided to visit due to the previous popular review - we didn't stay long, 30 minutes is plenty of time to visit this farm - essentially lots of pretty fields.
You can see more picture on my blog, and read about the saving grace of this stop - Franko and his wine!!

The Višnjan Observatory is an exceptional astronomic Observatory located in the attic of a house in the centre of the small town of Višnjan. Due to the increasing light pollution in Istria, the Observatory moved to a new location in 2007., on a Tičan hill, just 3 km outside Višnjan.
The Observatory has a great scientific and educational value, led by Korado Korlević.
Usually, the Observatory is open on Saturdays form 9 PM to 11 PM (from May to September) and is free of charge. Be sure to check their website and social media accounts (Facebook page) for updates or events.
I really liked the tour. I had a chance to see the Moon, Saturn and Jupiter through a telescope, heard a lecture by professor Korlević about ancient solar calendar (standing in the centre of the druidic stone circle), visited the Observatory and the giant Dagor telescope. Even held a piece of meteorite! It's one of a kind experience.
Keep in mind that the Observatory is privately-funded, meaning it runs on sponsors and donations so feel free to support their work.

The winery produce only sparkling wines, using the classic method. The winery has existed since 1990. We offer 11 sparkling wines. Sparkling wines are awarded at numerous national and world competitions.
We were explained by Maria the whereabouts of this excellent winery and sparkling wine production house. The third generations, sisters Catherina and Maria, are managing this fine winery in the Istra province. With tremendous patience and especially passion Maria explain all the important steps of the production line and made the degustation the summum of experience re learned information. Worthwhile to visit as it brings you also in a place outside of the tourist area.
