Some people, including Domagoj Klasiček, the owner of the Iuris Winery from Aljmaš say that Aljmaš and Dalj are the places with most sunshine throughout the year, not Hvar. Although I’m not sure that the statistics would support their claim, another claim is supported by hard facts: wines have been made in that region, and it has been documented, since the Roman times, as we know that Roman emperor Hadrianus tried to ban vineyards in the region around 100 AD (we have no idea why!).

All of the interviews in the series are going to be similar, with 8 same questions and 2 questions tailored specifically for each winemaker (those two will be easy to spot, as they will be coloured differently).

Croatian Winemakers

winemakers

There are more than 2,600 registered winemakers in Croatia, a phenomenal number for such a small country. The majority of these are not commercial, and produce for their own needs, but more than 500 winemakers are registered to sell their wines. The range of winemaker in Croatia is as diverse as the grape selection - from large coopertives to small family producers - and the personalities are egos provide many a colourful story.

No proper database of Croatian exists in the public domain sadly, and the various wine databases we have had access to have been inaccurate and incomplete. Above is our attempt to rectify that, an ongoing process, and if you see any inaccurate information or a winemaker missing, please contact us on [email protected] and we will rectify things.
