The Eastern Istrian vineyard, with around a hundred hectares of vineyards, is the smallest of the three Istrian vineyards. To the north, it extends to the slopes of Učka, while the natural boundary to the south is the Raša Channel. The tradition of viticulture in the Labin area has existed since ancient times, but due to industrialization in the last 60 years, it has waned. Things are changing for the better, and a shining example is the boutique winery Juričić from the village of Bartići near Labin.

In 2008, after completing his education, Lari Juričić began planting vineyards and olive trees. Today, he owns three hectares of vineyards and one hectare of olive trees, in addition to a lavender field. They have devoted the most attention to indigenous grape varieties such as Istrian Malvasia and Teran, alongside which they also cultivate Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and some Chardonnay and Yellow Muscat.

They are present in the market with about ten wine labels, and they have already received numerous domestic and international awards. Interestingly, some labels such as the aged Istrian Malvasia "Santa Barbara" and the black blend "Black Gold" carry mining-themed names, as mining was the main industry in this area for years.
