STORY BEHIND - PRELAC WINES
In northwestern Istria, in the hills of the Upper Buje area, lies the medieval town of Momjan. Once a dominant presence in ancient history, it has left its vast heritage to everyone living in this area – and to all those who come here to visit, sightsee and enjoy its wealth.
Nestled between vineyards and olive groves and offering a stunning view of the Adriatic Sea and the Alps, Momjan is a destination that needs to be visited and experienced. Staying in Momjan creates a lasting impression unlike any other.
The must-visit destinations in the Momjan area include our wineries and “konobas“ (inns), which make the scenery all the more intriguing and attractive. This is why 20 years ago we founded the Prelac family winery. It was at this moment that our future was set and became crystal clear - we would serve the soil, the vineyards and the olives, everything we have inherited from our grandfathers. We have succeeded in growing premium autochthonous wines, namely Malvazija, Refošk-Refosco and Momjanski Muškat-Momjan Muscat, which is a source of great pride to us. Our land is also the home of Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay, whose best features we have incorporated. And in order to satisfy even the most fastidious demands, we have also ventured into the production of sparkling wine. However, our wine story doesn't end there. The meticulously gathered and hand-picked grapes have undergone a transformation resulting in our very own impressive Refošk Rose.
For a truly pleasurable experience, after a wine tasting, we will take you to our “konoba“ for some authentic and abundant Istrian delicacies. As the pinnacle of local gastronomy, we offer the inescapable and coveted truffle, as well as meat dishes, homemade pasta, bread, wild asparagus, seasonal mushrooms and a variety of other delicacies that can only be tasted here. We add olive oil that we produce ourselves to all the dishes for your total enjoyment.
Staying in our Malvazija, Refošk and Muškat rooms makes the idyllic Istrian fantasy a reality. Here is where all your dreams will come true.
