"The first seedlings were made by professor Kozina and me in Zagreb, there were 35 vines we chose as first grade. I sent them to my father in Pridvorje and he planted them. Then we waited for two and a half years so we can reproduce them. Those grafts are the origin of 95% of vines in Konavle!"

Croatian Winemakers

winemakers

There are more than 2,600 registered winemakers in Croatia, a phenomenal number for such a small country. The majority of these are not commercial, and produce for their own needs, but more than 500 winemakers are registered to sell their wines. The range of winemaker in Croatia is as diverse as the grape selection - from large coopertives to small family producers - and the personalities are egos provide many a colourful story.

No proper database of Croatian exists in the public domain sadly, and the various wine databases we have had access to have been inaccurate and incomplete. Above is our attempt to rectify that, an ongoing process, and if you see any inaccurate information or a winemaker missing, please contact us on wine@total-croatia-wine.com and we will rectify things.
