In Markus winery, an emphasis is being put on indigenous varieties, plavac mali, and babić. By combining the traditional and modern winemaking methods, they give a unique mark to their wines, characteristic for Markus brand. Markus winery today produces a total of 17,000 bottles.

The wine is a ruby-red opaque color. Soft, round and harmonious. The fragrance is sophisticated with pronounced fruitiness. Spicy notes of tobacco and dark chocolate dominate the nose. The taste is full and at the same time fresh with a pleasant cling of the tannins that hints that the wine was lying in a wooden barrel. Grapes come from ecological vineyards from Nadin area, the region of northern Dalmatia. It aged for 12 months in French barrels (225L).
