Lika-Senj County

By , 14 May 2016, 11:50 AM Wine Regions

The Lika-Senj County of contrasts with the azure Adriatic, the commanding Velebit mountains and fertile plains.

In general, this county is not a wine producing region, however, there are a few small producers located on the island of Pag with one in particular who produces tremendous wines.

Boškinac winery is located on a hill overlooking their vineyards in Novalja. The location is quite beautiful as they amidst pine forests and just a stones throw from the sea. 

The production of wine in this family has been a family tradition for 4 generations with the current Boškinac vineyard being planted in 2000. Boškinac produce seven wines, the most interesting being gegić, a white grape variety native to Pag and the spectacular Boškinac Cuvee, a cabernet sauvignon and merlot blend, which is an absolute must try wine when in Croatia. 

They have an impressive tasting room and both konoba and restaurant where you can try their interesting and innovative food like Anthony Bourdain did.
