"The Roxanich Wine and Heritage Hotel is an outstanding boutique hotel in the heart of the Istrian peninsula – Croatia’s best wine region. It offers exceptional levels of luxury, together with impeccable service, a memorable fine dining experience, and some of the swankiest-looking rooms anywhere in Croatia. Service was excellent on our visit, the staff consistently polite, helpful and welcoming."

The Telegraph, UK

"For those who enjoy Merlot but prefer it in the style pioneered by Bordeaux, this isn't a bad bet. It could be described as traditional or idiosyncratic — either way, I am a fan."

Will Lyons, The Wall Street Journal, USA about Merlot Vintage 2006

"Wine tourism is growing as evidenced by the Roxanich Wine & Heritage Hotel. Chic interiors of gold subway tile and custom wallpaper provide a contrast to the old stone exterior. A new winery gives room for the production and aging of a dozen natural wines, at least six being skin-fermented whites left in barrel for years."

Wine Enthusiast Magazine, USA

A wine hotel with restaurant owned by one of Croatia's most famous winemakers. Spectacular architecture, great wines and modern and innovative Istrian cuisine.

FALSTAFF INTERNATIONAL RESTAURANT GUIDE 2021: 91 Points

Falstaff, Austria

Vom Restaurant und von der Terrasse aus haben die Gäste nicht nur einen wunderschönen Blick auf die umliegenden Weingärten und Trüffelwälder im Mirna-Tal. Ein echter Hingucker ist auch der „Water Mirror“, ein nur vier Zentimeter tiefes Wasserbecken, in dem sich die umliegende Landschaft spiegelt und abends auch der Sonnenuntergang. Das „Roxanich“ bietet seinen Gästen zudem Erlebnispakete unter dem Motto „Von der Traube bis zum Glas“, die Führungen durch die Reblagen und den Weinkeller sowie eine Weinprobe enthalten.

As befits a boutique wine hotel in the heart of Croatia’s greatest foodie region, the restaurant at Roxanich is outstanding. After kicking off with a delicate prawn carpaccio, we moved on to a wonderful seasonal fritaja with local wild asparagus (this would be replaced by black truffles in the winter). This was followed by a lovely fragrant risotto with scampi and Istrian saffron, and for mains we had the phenomenally good aged beef – in this case, aged for 100 days, and unlike any other beef I’ve ever tasted, anywhere. The house specialty (which we had the following day) is a delicious salad of dressed crab with a celeriac remoulade. There are also tasting menus, which make a good way to explore the Roxanich wine range.

Mladen Rožanić potpuno je netipičan protagonist hrvatske vinske scene. On, naime, proizvodi isključivo vina koja se sviđaju njemu, a ne široj publici.

So langsam wird es eng am Weinhimmel. Da stehen sie – Kopf an Kopf. Die üblichen Mainstream-Weine Merlot, Chardonnay & Rioja aus Frank- reich, Spanien, Deutschland und Co. Nicht, dass wir sie missen möchten – aber langsam wird es Zeit, dass das Sternenmeer Zuwachs bekommt. Denn es gibt sie noch. Die etwas anderen Weine dieser Welt, die zwar unbekannt, aber nicht minder großartig sind. Und jetzt, wo Kroatien auch ganz offiziell zu Europa gehört, ist es an der Zeit, des Landes rising star Mladen Rozanic vorzustellen, der sein Weingut in Istrien, auf den einprägsamen Namen Roxanich getauft hat. Eine coole Mischung seines eigenen Namens und des Liedes Roxanne von Police.

Rožanić winemaker can sound a bit like an enthusiastic poet while describing his wine production and love of vine and perfect grapes.

Budući da smo prvi zašli u njihove prostorije i kušali njihovu gastronomsku priču, odmah na početku moramo biti iskreni i reći kako eklektično uređen interijer apsolutno plijeni vašu pažnju, nakon čega primat preuzima divan pogled s prostrane terase koji puca na dolinu Mirne... Svoju ponudu prezentiraju kao vrlo ozbiljno koketiranje s bistronomijom, a jedna od vizualno efektnijih stvari je svakako rôtisserie na kojem osim peradi žele pripremati i druge vrste mesa ovisno o sezoni te velike staklene i osvijetljene vitrine za odležavanje mesa i sireva.

Vana Babić, Jutarnji list, Croatia

...And with the meticulous attention to detail and extraordinary patience of the winegrower that creates these fine wines of such distinct colour, bouquet and taste, we think these wines are truly blessed.

Der erste schluck – Schweigen! Hier scheiden sich die Geister! Komplexität pur. 

Drunkenmonday Wein Blog about 2007 Roxanich Malvasia Antica

The Roxanich winery has been a favourite after several fairs for natural wine, most recently at London’s Rawfair. 

Vidar Kenneth Johansen, Wine Chords Blog

Budući da je Rožanić beskompromisni perfekcionist koji obožava vino, logično je da podrum sagrađen ispod hotela spada među najfascinantnije pogone za proizvodnju vina koje smo ikada vidjeli u Hrvatskoj.

The wine is the icing on the cake – an experience that you will remember forever due to their special and unique taste, mostly intended for keen wine enthusiasts. 

Gorazd Čad, Kongres Magazine, EU

Die Weine sind frisch, fruchtig und aromatisch, kein Massenprodukt. Seine unverwechselbaren, herrlichen Weine werden aus autochthonen Sorten Istriens und internationalen Rebsorten gekeltert. Roxanich Weine sind absolute Liebhaberweine und für ganz besondere Abende gedacht.

Delicije, Germany

Unkommerziell, extravagant und unnachamlich. Wie sein Macher – ein Mann mit kompromisslosen Visionen und Leidenschaf- ten, der sagt, dass Mittelmäßigkeit in seinem Keller keinen Platz hat. Glauben wir gern – nachdem wir seine Superlative gekostet haben. 12 points for Croatia!
