Driven by passion and a strong belief in ourselves and our capabilities, we started to create our wine empire. Although we knew that in front us was not an easy job, we decided to emerge in it together, paving our own paths and writing our own history, while listening to the heart. Creating wines for our taste, improvising in the winery and carefully cultivating grapes in the vineyard resulted in wines increasingly recognized year by year. The overall success of creating a winery also contributed to the forming of our own family.
Since 2005 we have created 12 hectares of ecologically clean vineyards with hard work and perseverance. The learned knowledge and experience we transfer into the winery creating fine and elegant wines of a specific character, recognizable, with a special Mediterranean touch. The production process is a closed circuit that year after year is repeated, and we strengthen and renew our force and unity by doing something that gives us pleasure. Using the full potential of indigenous varieties and believing in their maximum efficiency, we decided to make the first extra brut Non dosage rose sparkling wine of the teran, a revolution in our winery, symbolically named Che.
Blending our red varieties (cabernet sauvignon, merlot, syrah and teran) combined with juices from lightly pressed grapes of teran, we create a rose, Rubi, dedicated to our oldest daughter. It is a fresh, mineral wine that perfectly fits on hot summer days. Terra Mare is a wine made from 100% teran grapes and is dedicated to our younger daughter. Of malvasias we do a Ponente and Uroboros, aged in barrels of acacia. Ponente is our fresh white wine, and the name it carries is of the western wind that blows in this area. Uroboros, the Greek symbol of a snake biting its tail, forming a closed development cycle and symbolizing therefore eternal recurrence. The connection between heaven and earth passed through the Uroboros sign is felt in the wine which is characterized by an excellent balance between grape variety and wood impact, and its structure allows it to maintain the strength and freshness, just like a real Uroboros.
From single variety reds besides teran we grow syrah and make a wine called Shuluq. It’s name originates from Arab, and bears the name of the south, warm wind that blows in this area, also known as the Jugo or Scirocco. The terroir of southern Istria is extremely suitable for the success of this variety and the wine from the Syrah grapes is intense, full, with ripe tannins and great balance of body and aromas. We like to say that this wine is our pride, the realization of our vision of aged red wines in style of Cotes du Rhone. We are especially proud of our red blend – Nigra Virgo Revolution. It is made from grapes of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, syrah and teran. Revolution – because it carries our character, Nigra Virgo – because it’s soft and velvety, yet tough and enduring, just like a women. Reflecting on the range of our products, we decided to include another wine – Dark Rose. It is a semi-sweet red wine made from dried grapes of Muscat rose.
