The story of the Benvenuti winery is a story of family, tradition and terroir. We are situated in the quiet Istrian village of Kaldir, overlooking nearby Motovun, where we grow three grape varieties - Malvasia Istriana, Teran and Muscat. Throughout history, these varieties have been giving the best results in Istria and it is therefore our intention to use the advantages of this unique territory sustainably, with gratitude for being a small part of it.

Family values and tradition are the key "condiments" of Benvenuti wines. They are the foundation upon which we produce our wines which in their grape variety reflect the abundance of our vineyards, located on several specific micro-locations. One of these, San Salvatore, is the heart of our varieties. The terraced configuration and the white soil, along with the micro-climate, give the grapes character which translates to very mineral, fresh wines, fully expressive of the characteristics of the varieties. These characteristics are expressed in all of our wines, from basic to aged Malvasias, fresh and harmonious Terans, through to intensive and pleasantly acidic sweet wines.

The results of our focus on micro-locations and indigenous varieties - along with honest, hard work - are wines that are recognised by consumers, critics and peers alike. Droplets of our story are enclosed in every Benvenuti bottle, in lieu with our philosophy: like wine, like winemaker. In this way, we would like to convey to you, the wine lover, the terroir on which and by which we live. Ideally, we will do this amongst the ripe grapes of our vineyards, in our cellar, the tasting area or rooms for those guests who wish to savour Benvenuti wines and the whole experience for more than just a day.

To us, wine has always been inseparable from life. We wish to share some of our passion with you!

Yours - Livio, Albert and Nikola Benvenuti.
