Bozidar stopped at our winery in summer of 2020 and after a cellar and vineyard tour tried some of our wines including Babić Timbar Riserva from 2016. Bellow is a snippet of his thoughts and for full opinion on wine please check out his notes at the original link found at the end of this article.
Baraka family winery in Sibenik area is ran by Filip Baraka, young and energetic winemaker with propensity to innovate, but only after paying due respect to rich traditions of the area in which he lives and creates his wines. His winery itself is a beautiful place to visit located on Srima Peninsula, close to historical town of Sibenik. Surrounding the winery and cellar are grapevines, olive trees and dry stone walls. This karst terrain is perfect for bearing grapes that can be turned into wines of strong character. The intent of the Barakas is on keeping the soil in the vineyard alive and their viticulture practices sustainable. Visit Croatian Lover’s review of Timbar riserva.

Babić Timbar Riserva 2016
Babić is an autochthonous variety of Dalmatia, mostly planted in Šibenik coastal region favoring rocky karst soil. Our label of Babić is named Timbar (English word: Timbre) as an ode to Dalmatia’s rich musical heritage. But Timbar also means a stamp in the local dialect. Sun, Wine, Music and a stamp to rich cultural history, welcome to Dalmatia.
