Border land, the new port of wine tourism
Trieste’s agricultural vocation has led the city to become an extremely interesting centre for food and wine tourism.
The natural agricultural vocation of Istria suffered due to its historical and politic heritage, when the area was tugged from one border to the other during the war. However, its attractive geographical position led it to become an extremely interesting center for food and wine tourism.
Local small food businesses are focused on quality, offering specialty wines, bouquette and other niche products, such as the renowned Istrian Vijulin ham
The ham is prepared during winter and seasoned with pepper, rosemary, garlic and laurel and then placed in sea salt brine and left to cure in the fresh windy air of the Bora.
Istrian people suggest to taste it cut into thin slices together with a glass of local wine.
