Great Wines and Old World Charm… Rovinj, Croatia
Granted you probably aren’t just going to drop into this one on a whim but… well worth knowing about. And the California chick over at the Winesleuth once again clues the rest of us in on a real hidden gem in Croatia.
“There aren’t many wine bars in Croatia and to find one in the ancient city of Rovinj, you have to be lucky. Sure there are lots of cocktail bars lining the cliffs along the seaside but a proper wine bar with a full list of some of the best wines that Croatia has to offer as well as a few foreign ones for the locals is well neigh impossible to find. That is, unless you know of Piassa Granda, a cool little bar tucked in amongst the winding streets of old Rovijn.
Piassa Granda is at the end of side street in the old city of Rovinj and may take a little searching to find but once you do, it’s a great little bar to hang out in. One of the first and probably only fully dedicated wine bars of Croatia, Helena and her sister Dragana run the joint and are extremely welcoming as well as speaking very good English which is a handy when you’re trying to navigate their extensive wine list. They have over 250 wines of the region on their list, mainly focusing on the native varietals with the major and best producers on the list. They also helpfully line the walls of the bar with their wines so you can just pick one off the shelf if it catches your fancy.”
I keep reading more and more about Croatia and hearing about it from four friends that vacationed there last year. Everything I am hearing is very positive and has got me thinking about it for the next vacation.
