This story has been inspired by the railway line located near the vineyards and farms in Istria, connecting the inside of the region “Kanfanar” with the coastal towns. The line named “La Linea” was operating for exactly 90 years – from 1876 till 1966. Many interesting and exited stories of it’s passengers have been passed from one generation to another, and although inactive for more than 50 years, it still remained important cultural heritage of “Kanfanar”.

On the left side of the label we can see one of the many goddesses worshipped by the Istrian people called HISTRI (ancient times) who worshipped exclusively female goddesses. There is also a goat which is a symbol of today’s Istra region. The rest of the label is dedicated to the railway line “La linea”.

This dry wine is made of old variety BLACK MUSCAT which is usually “90%” used for production of sweet and dessert wines, so it is been named SORPRESA, meaning “surprise”…
