New Champagne Bar Introduces Istrian Sparkling Wines to guests
8th July 2013, Pula - A new Champagne bar, featuring some of the world’s most coveted premium Champagne brands, as well as prized Istrian sparkling wines, has now opened at Park Plaza Histria Pula, located in Istria’s southern peninsula in Croatia.

Misal Peršurić is one of the largest producers of sparkling wine in Istria, located in the village of Peršurići, near Poreč. From humble, family-run beginnings, this winery grew into a national wine-making success story and today their range includes seven different natural sparkling wines.
