We met Poletti wines in Markovci near Višnjan and through a conversation with Peter and Matteo Poletti.
“Our family has a long tradition of wine production. I am the sixth generation, and it seems that my children will continue this tradition as the seventh generation. We continue the tradition on seven hectares of vineyards of that country that we have never sold!
We have seven labels on offer, and the most praised is our Cabernet Sauvignon which is among the best in the world. Of course, the road to such recognition was long. When we participated in the first Vinistra in 1994, we knew 50 times less about wine than we do today. Since then, a lot has changed, winemakers have realized that wine is produced in the vineyard and that with good nature, technology and crafts, you still need luck. For example, before, one wine was always made from Malvasia, and today we know how to make seven variants of different wines from that one variety.
Our wines can be found throughout Croatia, but mostly in Istria and on the doorstep. This year we made a step forward and opened our own bistro in Poreč “Casa Manzolin” to give people the opportunity to mix food and wine at affordable prices.
In the future we want to grow and further increase the quality of our wines. We don’t consider ourselves small, but we’re not big either. We are happy where we are and continue our family, generational, business. “– Peter Pijer Poletti
The pleasure and passion of the Poletti winery should be experienced in Markovci near Višnjan. They offer seven labels, and most praise Cabernet Sauvignon, which is among the best in the world.
The story of the Poletti family begins in 1842 when nono Piero Bernobich bought land from his father-in-law for a sum of 113 fiorinas and built the present house on it and founded the family. An agricultural farm created by their toil and self-denial, and the Poletti family continues their work today.
