Take a unique enologic and gastronomic journey and experience Istria!
Visit our ZIGANTE TRUFFLE DAYS 2016 in Livade during one of the seven autumn weekends (18 September – 30 October)
In the very heart of Istria, in the valley of the river Mirna below Motovun lays the Motovun forest, a rich forest area which is home to one of the most valuable fruits of the earth – truffles. Every year during seven autumn weekends “Zigante Truffle Days” are held in Livade, which bring together numerous domestic and foreign guests from all over the world (Slovenia, Germany, Austria, Italy, Sweden, Russia, Great Britain, USA, Taiwan, Japan …).
This manifestation made the village Livade known as the center of the Istrian truffle, and the rich program of “Zigante Truffle Days” includes truffle fair, an international exhibition of wine and other indigenous Istrian products (such as Istrian prosciutto, sausage, cheese, honey, olive oil, schnapps…), culinary workshops, demonstrations of truffle hunting in the forest, and various tastings at which guests can try culinary specialties made with truffles presented by well-known chefs.
Zigante Truffle Days are held on weekends from 18 September to 30 October 2016. Entry to the fair, as well as tastings of all products, are free for all visitors. Read
