USA Today published the list of best wine regions which must not be missed during winter and spring. Istria is ranked high on this list of interesting journeys. It is joined in this prestigious company of selected destinations with the Italian Chianti region of Tuscany, the South African Franschhoek region and the Australian Mornington Peninsula.

Apart from the wines which will sweep you off your feet, USA Today praises Istria by describing it as an extremely charming region with seaside positioned restaurants and beautiful hinterland countryside. A special place was reserved for Rovinj with its perfect seaside rest scenery accompanied by tastings of one of superb Istrian wines.
