I had thoughts of a vineyard tour of Istria, in the knowledge that the wine grown there is of high quality and low quantity, and mainly produced by small companies. However, most of the vineyards are in the north, and Pula is in the south. The only organised wine tasting trip from Pula went to places we had already visited, so instead we walked from our apartment to Vina Benazić, just outside Pula.
We really enjoyed the samples of five wines, and the excellent lunch platter, served with olive oil also produced by Vina Benazić. Katarina, one of the two daughters after whom some of their wine is named (the other one is Veronika) spoke to us about the family business. The wine was superb.
