There are wonders you will never discover by sticking to the main roads. The well-tread paths are flat and gray, devoid of magic and imagination. No. Magic only happens off the beaten path. When you take the road less traveled.
At the end of this road stands Meneghetti Wine Hotel & Winery— a vineyard where serenity abounds, graced with chirping birds, buzzing bees, and the aromatic scents of sage, sweet grapes, lavender and rose. Greeting you to this peaceful place are two majestic, centuries-old cypress trees. Say hello, as you enter their hidden world of wonder and charm.
Located near the Istrian town of Bale, but surrounded by olive groves, blue sky and Istria’s natural beauty, the hotel once served as a 19th century retreat for soldiers serving in the Austro-Hungarian army. Meneghetti Wine Hotel & Winery still represents a rare oasis of peace and shelter from the stress of everyday life.
Here, tranquil, peaceful colors reign. A deep blue peace ripples with waves of sunshine on the surface of the pool, as you hold a glass of exquisite Meneghetti sparkling wine, set beneath the endless blue sky. A green peace grows as you stroll through the vineyard where roses bloom among the healthy fragrance of the dangling, growing grapes. Meneghetti Wine Hotel & Winery produces its very own, high quality wine and their own olives are used in the fantastic Meneghetti Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
A rich, golden peace, cast in the shade of a pair of centuries-old oaks, the brothers of the cypresses that first greeted you to this haven, beckons to you under their rich, sun dappled canopy. In the tranquil shadow of these twin trees sits a table, laden with food made from rare and special recipes, fine wine and superb domestic oil.
Meneghetti Wine Hotel & Winery and its surroundings offer a host of adventures. A short boat ride away are Brijuni. Have the hotel’s private boat take you to these islands of splendor. Explore this paradise, letting the archipelago inspire you with its beauty and history.
For active holiday lovers, Brijuni are proud of a centuries’ long tradition of golf, and as you come back from our private beach a series of well-paved paths leads you to discovery of nearby fortifications from the era of the Austro-Hungarian dual monarchy. In the heart of mysterious Motovun forest step into adventure of truffle hunting - one of the rarest and most precious mushrooms in the world.
