In the Kingdom of Muscat - Momjan

The history of Momjan reaches back to 1035 and the spirit of the long history is following you in the every lane of Momjan. Momjan is irresistible due to muscat of Momjan, the white grapevine variety which grows in the limited area of Momjan, at the altitude of 200 to 350 m. Many connoisseurs of istrian wine will award the 1st place to the muscat of Momjan due to its golden colour, intensive wild carnations scent and the extraordinary aroma.

Dry and sweet. It commonly accompanies the sweets, as well as every sophisticated dish. The muscat is also attributed with aphrodisiac properties, especially with coy ladies. Due to its specificity, the muscat of Momjan is also admired outside istria. it won a gold medal at the Wine Exhibition in Brussels back in 1935. If its charm was truly enjoyed at the court of the emperor Franz Joseph in Vienna and the King Emanuel III in Rome, why wouldn't you do that...?

You can try the emperor's muscat from the Momjan area at the manifestation to its honour at a beautiful location near the mediaeval Momjan castle. While tasting the muscat of Momjan, where the wine is offered to the guests by the MUSCATeers dressed in MUSCATeer's uniforms, one may see a special programme with the historic presentation of Momjan and its surroundings.
