Bastiàn is a new brand of wines produced in the best wine-growing locations in the white soil on slopes beneath Buje, in Istria. The uniqueness of the terroir is manifested through the numerous water sources after which Buje is named, but also the white Istrian soil that allows the roots of the vine to go deep into the soil, searching for water.
Bastiàn in the local dialect signifies St. Sebastian, one of the patrons of Buje. With the slogan “Dedicated to Istria’s White Soil”, we emphasized the preservation of the white Istrian soil.
The arrow as a detail on the sign points to St. Sebastian as the guardian of the white soil. The backgrounds of the wine labels are reminiscent of the white soil and vineyards viewed from above. The texture of the white soil is shown by free line strokes showing cracks and details on the ground. Details such as green leaves, dry grass, as well as traces of animals encountered in vineyards, namely deer, are also visible on wine labels.
