Draga is a small Istrian river flowing through the countryside around the city of Buzet, along beautiful canyons and waterfalls. It brings love and water to fields of our divine Istrian truffles.
With Roxanich Draga we try to frame this beauty with Pinot Blanc - a variety traditionally grown in West Istria since the days of Napoleon.
The Roxanich Draga brings all the best of the Pinot Blanc grape, naturally fermented with indigenous yeasts, macerated for two days, maintaining its originality and terroir footprint.
The noble straw yellow color of the wine carries divine flavors of quince, peaches, and lemon zest, with a notably smooth, long-lasting aftertaste.

If our wine has travelled by post or in the trunk of your car, please allow it a week to settle at its new premises before opening. Please keep it always out of sunlight and at a temperature of under 15 degrees Celsius. It’s strictly natural wine, so it develops best with a lot of fresh air at consumption. Therefor please open - and decant if possible - the red wines several hours before consumption - best at noon if you plan to drink them for dinner - and the white wines at least two hours before consumption. Please place special attention to wine glasses: our natural wines are best experienced in as wide and open glasses as possible, allowing them to develop they stunning array of scents and aromas to their full potential.
Thanking you for such a treatment, Roxanich wines will return this care generously with stunning new levels of enjoyment.
