We finish this Slovenia series with a visit to Zaro wines in the Istrian peninsula. Perhaps fittingly they are located in the far West of Slovenia, close to borders with Italy and Croatia. Even more fittingly the rain was coming down as we sheltered under an umbrella for Matej to describe the history, landscape and microclimate of his vineyard sites. This informs the house philosophy to grape growing and winemaking, and ultimately the style of the wine. From our spot in the vineyards we head to the cellar and taste a trio of barrel samples. Before heading to the Manzoli Wine Bar in the centre of Isola, where we taste the current vintages of the previously tasted barrel samples. And finish proceedings with a tasting of two reds. Listen right the way through for details of the Orange Wine Festival that the winery helps to arrange in Vienna.
