❖ Wine tasting at Kabola Winery (Buje)
"We are situated in the north western Istrian peninsula at 275m above sea level, with a view of the Alps and the
Dolomites on one side and the lush greenery of pristine nature and a beautiful sea panorama on the other. Our
vineyards are located on Stancija hill near our winery in Kanedolo near Momjan. The soil consists mainly of clay and is rich in marl, which gives the wines their special characteristics. Our hard work in the vineyards results in grapes that are a reflection of our region and climate. There can be no great wine without quality grapes. This means that the preparation of a good wine begins in the vineyard. We pour these grapes into your glass, revealing all the goodness and charm of the Momjan region, captured in the drops of Kabola wines."
