If it is a truly authentic wine tasting experience that you are looking for, then Piquentum, located in Buzet (Istria) is the winery for you.
We arrived unannounced, and caught Dimitri just as he was leaving for Italy. He was late, but there was no hesitation to invite us in for a quick tour and a memorable experience ...
Standing in what was originally an old 1930's Italian water cistern, we sampled his latest batch of Malvasia and Teran, straight from the barrel.
Dimitri's mission - to "discover the character of this land." At that moment, it felt like we were experiencing a small, sincere and unpretentious piece of that character with him. We felt privileged.
