Vina Rossi


Hospitable and hardworking, the Rossi family is headed by father Marino, a lifelong passionate winemaker and agriculturalist, and mother Ines, a winery engineer. They are followed by their three sons, Luka, Marko and Filip. Nona Giovanna and aunt Antonia are here to look after everyone’s well being. Above all, here is nono Federico, the epitome of inspiration and experience, who, at eighty eight, still meticulously nurtures his beloved vines.
This magnificent Istrian wine producer has been awarded “Gold” medal status at Vin Istra for their premium Malvazija Templar and a “silver” medal for their fresh Malvazija Istarska.

Terroir

The Rossi family produces wine from their own grapes, grown on over 12ha of independently planted and carefully maintained high-quality vineyards. Vineyards are nestled on nine different locations around Bajkini village in the North-West of Istria.

The Mission.

The Rossi family wines are representative of the modern approach to infused traditional wine making. Their special relationship with indigenous Istrian vine varieties makes their Istrian wine particularly interesting and their mission of local, traditional wines being enjoyed locally and internationally a reality.

Balanced Soil Variety

As a rule, dry years regularly produce better yield from the white and gray soils, whilst the rainy years favour red soil. This is a balancing factor that preserves the overall harvest quality.
