#13 of 24 in Wineries in Istria
BELAJ is early Baroque Castle, Annexes and Vineyard situated in the hilly area of the North-Eastern part of Istrian peninsula, Croatia. Surrounded by the untouched nature it has one of the best views over The Učka ([ˈut͡ʃka],Monte Maggiore) mountain.

Castle Belaj is the Registered Historical Heritage of Croatia.

The first mentioning of the estate dates back to 1063 when the Istrian count Ulich Weimer took the area between Labin and Rijeka. Emperor Henrik thus donated several castles to the count including Bellai.

The Castle and Vineyard have always lived in a symbiosis and in past were ruled by noble families such as Guteneck, Moyses, Barbo and Auersperg.

In August 2017 it opened it doors to the public as a historic poit, restaurant and shop offering local foods and wine degustations for groups as well as individuals. It has also become a popular wedding and private event destination.

  • What a lovely way to spend Sunday afternoon with friends! Great food friendly service and lovely country surrounding. One of the highlights of our visit to Istria.
  • Thank you for being perfect the hosts at our dream wedding. The food, the wine, the venue and the service were nothing but amazing and we couldn’t be happier with how your team had treated us. Big thumbs up and keep up the good work:)
  • Very nice quiet place away from rush! Good food, exelent wine and service!
  • Nice place.
  • We have chosen Castel Belaj for our wedding ceremony followed by dinner with family. Everything was superb and fairytale like (this coming from a guy). From the moment you start approaching the castle by road you get astonished by the nice scenery of vineyards and castles' forefront. Fore sure you will spent 15min just walking around and admiring the green hills around you before entering the castle. Service is very professional and meals reflect the taste of traditional central Istria. Everything is so good and tasty! Try some Istrian typical dishes like pljukanci with truffels, ravioli with cheese, fuzhi with gulash and varieties of meat. Do not forget to taste their wines since they offer wine tasting from humongous barrels of wine. They have a very nice Merlot and Chardonnay made in their own production. You might end up buying couple of bottles of each;)
