Truffle and Wine Tour

Istria, the culinary capital of Croatia, is a home of truffles, known as the diamond of the kitchen. Go on the hunt for this hidden underground treasure with Karlić family, whose third generation is now hunting for truffles. Friendly hosts will tell you all about truffles, the tradition of truffle hunting, and their truffle hunting dogs. Tasting of truffle products will be prepared for you in beautiful surroundings, and you will have the opportunity to buy truffle products in their shop.

A rush of adrenaline that you will experience together during the truffle hunting certainly will not leave you indifferent, because truffles are their love and their way of life. The truffle business of the Karlić family from Paladini near Buzet was established last century in 1966.

The culutral and gastronomic truffle adventure is followed by wine tasting in Villa Menenghetti. The “Red Land” (Terre Rosse) around the Meneghetti wine estate, and in the location of Val Gambalera in Bale, is a hard, poor soil with a high share of stone. It is intense and full of minerals – especially rich in iron that gives it the specific shade of intense and playful red color, but also its unique moisture and longevity. This red soil absorbs the sea air, the scents of Mediterranean plants that grow in its surroundings, and is particularly suitable for red grape varieties.

For all true fans of great red wines, Meneghetti offers a unique opportunity for vertical tasting of six vintages of their best wine, the Meneghetti Red.
