Giorgio Clai is the most passionate winemaker on the Istrian peninsula. His wines can be found in the top New York and San Francisco restaurants. “I am making wine in the vineyard, not in the winery!” he will proudly tell you. Clai is the first winery in Istria that reached the status of cult winery. He follows the principles of biodynamic viticulture. His wines are made from organic grapes without the addition of selected yeasts and with the minimum amount of sulphur. This Baracija is produced from 100 % Malvasia Istriana from the young vineyards.  The main part of these young wines is situated in a location called Baracija. Grapes are handpicked, de-stemmed and gravity fed with their skins into large wooden barrels for maceration which usually lasts from 7 to 20 days and starts with natural yeasts on the temperature at 30 Celsius degrees.

Pigeage is done at least three times a day in which wine undergoes malo-lactic fermentation. After pressing it is aged for two years in big oak barrels (1000 to 2500 l). The result is a traditional flavor and elegant presence on the palate. Wine of longevity and complexity which develops with time in a glass. Despite yellow tannin, the texture is finely tuned and the wine is well balanced.
