Fodor's Review

This small family-run winery in Golaš, a small village 17 km (10½ miles) south of Rovinj, is housed in a beautifully restored farmhouse with exposed stones and large wooden beams. It features a wine cellar, tasting room with a big open fireplace, and a small ethnographic museum displaying old family photos and equipment that once was used in the wine-making process in Istria. Don’t let their Malvazija Istarska fool you! Although the wine is fresh, easy to drink, and sweet, it is still 14% alcohol. They also produce a few reds, a rosé, and the sweet dessert wine Muscat Žuti. If the owner, Janja, happens to be there, ask her to let you taste her raisin wine, which isn't for sale.
