The application has divided Istria into 6 smaller areas and each of them presents several itineraries that connect the most important Wine and Gastro locations in the area. All of those offered itineraries have a different name, depending on which micro area you have selected so you can opt for Four lands for four experiences, Veli Jože, Muscat of the Momnjan muscateers, Teran etc.
