LONG HISTORY OF SHEEP RAISING

The story of Špin cheese begins and ends at Stancija Špin, a sheep farm on the north-west coast of Istria in Tar near Poreč, only two kilometres away from the sea. The region has a long history of livestock and sheep raising so that it is only natural for this Stancija estate to have specialised in sheep farming in the course of the 20th century. Today’s modern dairy farm flanks the traditional Istrian house Špin, a perfect illustration of the approach to the production of Špin cheese with modern technology complementing the wisdom of our century-old dairy farming tradition. Stancija Špin is a place where tourists can visit the sheep farm, taste and buy the indigenous Istrian cheese and Vina Laguna wines – the best possible way of blending agricultural production and tourism, the two main branches of economy in Istria.

Taste of Istrian Pastures
Istrian Cheese Špin bears a unique signature of the Istrian soil, drawing out the very best from the Istrian climate. Istrian pasture lands where our darling cows and our darling sheep graze make the most of the vicinity of the Adriatic Sea that provides the sun, the salt and the inebriating grass fragrance, while the Mirna River and Mount Učka bring along frequent rains and mainland coolness. Stone is hard to find around here, there is only unspoiled soil with no industry around. Pasture biodiversity and a unique micro-location provide optimal conditions for dairy production.
