First Family Baraka Wines
Our journey with wine started in the late eighties, during the last century. At that time, we began making wine in our family cellar using Plavina and Babić grapes sourced from smaller vineyards in our region.
Year of winery establishment
Founded by the late Capt. Gordan Baraka and his son Filip-Karlo Baraka, our vineyard sits on a small peninsula near Šibenik, surrounded by ancient drywalls and an early Christian basilica. We remain committed to vision of crafting exceptional wines that reflect the region's unique terroir.
Celebrating the first harvest
Our first vintage from Prisbus vineyard was a humble production, yielding only about 600 liters of wine. Looking back, it may seem like a small amount, but it marked the beginning of our winemaking journey. We're proud of our modest beginnings and remain committed to producing wines of the highest quality, reflecting our passion for winemaking and dedication to our craft.
Prisbus wine is born
Our inaugural commercial vintage was produced in 2010 and given the name Prisbus, in homage to the nearby basilica and historical name of the vineyard location. Prisbus is a distinctive blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes sourced exclusively from our Estate vineyard.
We finally moved the whole production to a new cellar also build on our Estate in the traditional architectural style of Dalmatia. Blending traditional and modern with capacity for years to come.
Barrique cellar finished
This year marks the completion of our 20-meter underground cellar designed for the optimal aging of wine in barrique barrels. Our premium reds have been carefully transferred by gravity to new barrels within the cellar, where they will mature and develop their complex flavors. We're thrilled to offer our customers wines of exceptional quality that reflect the full potential of our vineyard's terroir.
First glasses filled in our Tasting Room
In the heart of the 2018 season, we opened our wine tasting room, designed to cater to smaller groups and friends seeking an intimate wine-tasting experience. However, we also have the flexibility to accommodate larger groups upon request. With warm hospitality and exceptional wines, we aim to provide an intimate wine-tasting experience for all of our guests.
