Enjoy life like an Istrian

Cooking Classes & Wine/Food Tours

We invite epicurean travelers coming to Istria, the green Mediterranean of Croatia, to take our Cooking Classes, Wine Tours or Food Tours and learn how we eat, drink and live on the largest peninsula of Adriatic sea. All programs are private experiences designed for couples, families and small groups of up to 8 persons.

The show was aired on channel France 5, featuring educational and travel programming. Here you can check out how we spent an August evening with this lovely TV crew and our friends from Pula (video is in French – duration 3 min).
