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.

Malvazija Franković is a high-quality wine, characterized by a golden – yellow color. The smell is very pleasant and seductively playful in the glass. You can scent the smells of citrus, like orange peel and peach, followed by pineapple notes combined with a classic Malvazian scent that resembles acacia flower. It is a balanced wine with intense taste with a good durability in the mouth, which leads to a great ending with a peach aftertaste. The wine features a beautiful freshness. It will pair ideally with fish, seafood and pasta dishes.
