Croatia: About the Wine Region

The entire history of south Croatian County of Dalmatia is historically tied to winemaking, starting as far back as 1000 years BC.

For a long time, wine growing and winemaking has been a foundation stone of Dalmatian economy. The whole surface of Dalmatia is tightly knitted with vineyards, but the areas under vines differ in wine varieties, and surprisingly enough amongst them, you can find also, a previously thought to be Californian wine, Zinfandel – locally known as Tribidrag. The grape’s history can be traced in the Dalmatian region dating back to the 14th century AD; Time when Zinfandel/Tribidrag was one of the most prominent grapes in the entire Adriatic; thus making Zinfandel/Tribidrag more than 800 years old prominent Dalmatian wine.

Although the story of Zinfandel’s origin is an intriguing one, and every visitor to the region should do its best to discover, it wouldn’t be possible to narrate the story of Dalmatian wines without a taste of Plavac mali, Cabernet Sauvignon, Red Syrah, or Posip.
