Piquentum

PIQUENTUM, Istria

Piquentum is a small family estate situated near the village of Buzet, in the peninsula of Istria, Croatia. With 5 hectares under vine they practice organic farming and work exclusively with indigenous varieties, such as Istrian Malvasia, Teran and Refosk. The vineyards are planted on hills ranging from 200 to 400m in altitude, and about 15km from the Adriatic Sea, with soils of white clay and limestone. Their geographic position – close to the sea but also not far from the Dinaric Alps – means they enjoy a Mediterranean climate with a big influence of continental winds which makes for ideal conditions for the vines.
