Babić is the single grape variety in the wine region of Primošten and it has been like that from the beginnings of viticulture in this area. The wine region is situated in northern Dalmatia, some 25 kilometers east of Šibenik and 60 kilometers west of Split. The best description of Primošten terroir is stone, sun, sea, wind, and the name Suha Punta, as the name of this region due to little rainfall during the annual life-cycle.
