Sladić Ante Winery is a family winery in Plastovo, on a hill above Skradin, near the Krka National Park. They uncompromisingly believe in indigenous varieties and invest enormous effort in vineyard and wine cellar while respecting tradition and nature. It is a winery with a long tradition and great passion for winemaking. The microclimate at an altitude of 250 m created by a unique combination of River Krka and the Adriatic Sea. Enriched with the soil formed under the influence of the sea and a river that once ran in that area has produced a lot of limestones and a mixture of different soil that gives minerality and allows creating wines of various styles and qualities. Plavina is from the Dalmatian family, Babic, Plavac mali, Tribidrag and other famous varieties.

A lively and juicy wine with a spicy character. It is recomended to decant the wine, since the fruit is highly concentrated but at the same time nicely balanced. The playfulness and mineral character of this wine present all benefits of this indigenous variety. Due to this, the wine has more and more admirers beyond Croatian borders.

On the west coast of Istria, grapes are grown on “terra rossa”, red soil. While Santa Lucija is “breathing” the white Istrian soil, the mother of extraordinary wines and above all the unique Buje Malvazija. Santa Lucia is the patron saint of family’s wine portfolio. From this “white” soil comes Franković winery wine selection. It has always been known that the Malvazija from Buje surroundings is distinguished by exceptional quality. But with Franković distinctive Malvazija, Teran, Chardonnay, Sauvignon, and Cabernet-Sauvignon are also born in the same Santa Lucia locality.

Winery Matela Winery
Country Croatia
Region Dalmatia
Variety Crljenak Kaštelanski
Category Red wines
Bottle size 0.75 L
  • Black pepper
  • Blackberry
  • Leather
  • Raspberry

Crljenak is soft and smooth wine with a distinct varietal flavor, which goes from discrete floral to strong fruit flavor. Its quality and character largely depend on the place of cultivation, the age of the vineyard, and the winemaking technology. The fruit is dark and deep, nearly leathery, in tune with some serious aroma sensations, while the tannins are tiny and build up only after a long time with the bottle. Good acids, somewhat salty like the sea, as a fresh shell and wind on a salty face.

  • Fruit cake
  • Hard cheese
  • Lamb
  • Tuna

The family Matela has a long tradition of viticulture and wine-making. Kaštela area (Near Split) is traditionally wine-growing region where dozens of old native varieties are recorded. The most notable is Kaštelanski Crljenak aka Zinfandel. Winery “Matela” strives to produce wines in the traditional manner, with respect to new findings in wine making. Red wines are produced exclusively on their natural yeasts which makes it possible for the wine to preserve its individuality and uniqueness.

Winery Braća Plančić Winery

Variety Darnekuša
Category Red wines
Bottle size 0.75 L
Alcohol 13.5 %
Production 2.500
  • Carob
  • Cherry
  • Fig
  • Wild strawberries

The name Dernekuša is derived from a Turkish word for that state just before a wild party becomes an orgy, but weirdly the variety very rarely attains more than 12% alcohol. Unlike Plavac Mali, the color of this wine characterizes the “meat” ruby color. Wine has unique aromas and surprisingly fresh taste. Before bottling, wine ages in oak barrels and partially in inox tanks minimum of 12.

  • Casserol
  • Hamburger
  • Tuna
  • Veal

Brothers Plančić Winery is located on the sunniest island in Croatia, Island Hvar. The winery was established in 1919. And since then it is run by family Plančić. They are using indigenous cultivars characteristic for the island Hvar. White varieties: Bogdanuša and Parč. And red: Plavac Mali and Darnekuša. Typical for the Plančić winery is that they process every vineyard by hand and that every bottle has a unique number. You can find the information on how much of that vintage was produced, and which bottle do you own. Darnekuša is a rare Croatian variety only grown on the island of Hvar. It is nearly extinct with only 1.5 hectares of vineyards left on the island. It is unique because it grows only on the highest positions of Hvar island, 580 m above the sea level. It is probably the highest vineyard in Croatia.
