Monticello

The hamlet of Završje is located at an altitude of 240 meters between Grožnjan and Oprtalj, and throughout history, it has been inhabited by numerous families who have traditionally been engaged in agriculture for centuries. Unfortunately, after World War II, many families left this beautiful area for various reasons, and it has never fully recovered since. The Pincin family is one of the few that remained and continued that old tradition, running their own agritourism for many years.

Through it, they offer guests wines and olive oils produced in ecological conditions on their own estate, as well as other products such as fruits and vegetables. In addition, they offer traditional Istrian wine and gastronomy specialties, including homemade prosciutto and cheese, ombolo, sausages, and excellent desserts. The Pincin family currently cultivates three hectares of vineyards located on white soil with a loamy-sandy composition typical of this area. Due to the soil configuration, the vineyards are traditionally planted on terraces that are very demanding to cultivate and require a lot of manual work in the vineyard.

They have Malvasia Istriana, Teran, Cabernet Sauvignon, and White Muscat varieties, all of which pair excellently with the specialties they offer to guests at their estate. The annual wine production is around 10,000 liters, with a smaller portion bottled and the majority sold as bulk wine. In addition to vineyards, they cultivate 800 olive trees from which they obtain excellent extra virgin olive oil, which, like their wine, has received numerous awards at various exhibitions throughout Istria and the region.
