Karst DOC wines
Trieste’s Karst wines
The Karst is a rocky plateau extending between Friuli and Slovenia. The main features of this area are caves and valleys and “Bora” wind which blows powerfully. A land where viticulture is not easy but this rocky territory has produced internationally well known wines .
Karst vines are three and all originate natural wines: in this area the vines are not treated with chemicals, the fermentation is spontaneous and there is almost no trace of sulphites.
The vine for excellence is Terrano, which gives origin to a red wine that remembers a Refosco, but more harsh. Among white wines, we have to mention the Istrian Malvasia, slightly aromatic and dry, ideal to sip with a fish dish. The last one is Vitovska, a wine born from the crossing of Malvasia and Glera grapes, a slightly spicy wine of great fineness.
In our restaurant you can enjoy all these types of wines accompanied by our traditional dishes. We have a large collection of wines from Karst companies in addition to those of our production.
