Boris belongs to the younger generation of Istrian beekeepers. He inherited the beekeeping tradition from his father. He mostly produces acacia, chestnut and meadow honey. His hives are located near a village, surrounded by virgin nature, which gives the products a distinctive worthiness. Apart from honey, one can try propolis, honey in honeycomb and walnuts in honey. Today, Boris and his family use modern beekeeping techniques but without forgetting tradition: a small rustic tasting cellar houses a little exhibition of ethnographic items belonging to the rural life of central Istria: various saws, drills, chisels, a corn mortar, stone vessel for keeping oil, wooden vice. When the host offers you wine - do not hesitate - even the wine carries the taste of tradition! The secret lies in a very rare sort of grapes called duranija which, blended with malvasia, gives the wine a particular taste. Apart from the already common Istrian medenica (grappa with honey), we recommend višnjica - a happy combination of grappa, honey and cherries. You can buy honey Hrvatin in souvenir shops "Kantunić" and "Taste Istria" in Pazin.
