Anđelini Wines

Pazin is one of the most important historical towns in Istria, with traces of life dating back to around 1500 BCE. The tradition of winemaking and viticulture in the Pazin area and throughout central Istria has lasted for centuries, and it was in Pazin in 1901 that the first Istrian public wine tasting was held, a kind of precursor to today's Vinistra. Today, there are only a few wineries in the vicinity of Pazin, and the most significant among them is the family-owned Angelini Winery.

The history of this winery is linked to Velan's Hill, a settlement several kilometers south of Pazin, where in 1924, Ciril Velan built a house and wine cellar and planted indigenous grape varieties such as Malvasia, Brajdenica, and Teran. The more recent history began in 1997 when Ciril's grandson, Ranko Angelini, modernized the winery and expanded the vineyards. Today, they cultivate 15 hectares of vineyards and are present in the market with seven wine labels, including the Pazin Malvasia and the powerful red blend, Domenico.

The assortment in the vineyard is mostly comprised of Malvasia Istriana, along with Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, and White Muscat. In addition to premium wines, the Angelini Winery also offers excellent honey for sale.
