The Kozlović family has carved out their own little paradise here in Vale, just below Momjan and surrounded by vineyards primarily planted with the indigenous grape variety Muskat Momjan. The atmosphere is simply magical in the shade of the large walnut tree in front of the estate. It’s easy to spend hours tasting through the fascinating wines paired with fine locally sourced Croatian antipasti. Antonella and her team enjoy bringing guests through the estate, and have plenty of tips ready for those looking to discover more. Excursions in the region, shaded hiking paths that pass right by the property, outstanding Istrian fine dining, bicycle rentals, overnight options, festivals and cultural events, the fish market on the coast, and farm stands in the next valley over. Whatever you’re looking for — Antonella knows where to find it.
The members of the Kozlović family love this place. They see themselves as proud representatives of the region, one of fascinating geographical and historical relevance, incredibly rich in natural, cultural, and culinary treasures. Antonella and Gianfranco have never seen their estate as an isolated entity. In their minds, it is much more a joyous portal to the colorful plenty of Istria. After all, anyone hoping to explore the hills around Momjan will discover that there are no tourist offices or even highly informative websites. You simply have to know who to ask. And there’s no better option than Antonella Kozlović.
