At Croatia’s Meneghetti Wine hotel & Winery, the owners’ philosophy has been to create a place infused with peace and wholesomeness. Part of this picture is a strong emphasis on local, organic food.
The hotel aims to source as much food as possible from within a 50km radius—an approach that sits naturally with suppliers on the peninsula, where close human contact and cooperation has long been vital for the community to thrive. Meneghetti works in partnership with suppliers who provide it with fresh organic vegetables, homemade pasta, award-winning cheeses (sourced from a local dairy – Latus), yoghurt, and naturally, milk truffles—an Istrian delicacy.The chefs turn these high-quality ingredients into Istrian haute-cuisine as part of their quest to reconstruct and reinterpret the area’s traditional recipes. And, every dish is skillfully matched to the hotel’s own range of wines and one of the four varieties of olive oils the estate produces.
