One of Croatia’s most prominent experts of enology, Sasa Spiranec, notes no less than thirteen distinctive sources of Dalmatian wine culture. If you are a fan of classy glasses and can’t imagine having voyage without visiting a cellar here and there, consider these localities a must-visit:


This part of Croatia is known as ‘homeland of babic’– a kind of wine which might be challenging to produce in imperfect conditions. Yet, when met with ideal surroundings, it is a wine of rich and balanced taste. In addition to babic, a kind called plavina is also popular- coming in forms of classy rose and refreshing red summer wine.  Other notable products are lasina (a tender red wine that is unjustly unrecognized by mainstream scene) and already mentioned marastina (tip: couple it with fish meal and you won’t leave the table unsatisfied). Most prominent winemakers are Baraka, Bibich, Birin, Sladic, Sladic Ante and Testament.
