Overview

We invite curious visitors of Istria, the green Mediterranean, to join our Cooking Classes and Wine Tours and learn how we eat, drink and live on the largest Adriatic peninsula. Fresh, local and simple for more taste and less fuss. Let all your senses enjoy the magic of Istrian cuisine. All our tours are private experiences and tailored for individuals and small groups. (1-6 guests). What is included: transfer from anywhere in Pula area, all the ingredients that we source on local green and fish market, the lesson followed by a meal that you cooked, a bottle of wine for two persons, water and some authentic sightseeing… Experience Istrian wines on the spot, talking to them, not listening to boring talks about them. If you are a wine enthusiast eager to meet in person Istrian winemakers and taste their Istrian Malvasia, Teran and Istrian Borgonja, grape varieties indigenous to Istria, take one of our wine tours - Central, Western or South Istrian

To sit sorrounded in olive trees in a complete nature while eating perfectly cooked food by chefs and drinking istrian wine can be a new honeymoon destination! Put it on your bucket list as far up aa possible so you can visit it often!

hi Karen - if you contact Goran he can answer all of these questions for you. He is the best at organizing these classes for you. It was totally worth every penny.
