“Wine made on the islands in the Adriatic Sea has proven to be the best wine compared to all others”
– Athenaios (Ancient Greek writer)
The history of Croatian wine traces back to the Ancient Greek settlers who arrived—wine skills in tow—on the shores of the Adriatic in the 5th-century BC.
These settlers also brought their vines to southern Dalmatia, and the region has been producing indigenous wine varietals ever since.
Over 60 native grapes exist to this day, and some have evolved into a new variable, such as Crljenak Kaštelanski, now recognized as the progenitor to Zinfandel.
Croatian wine is unique to viniculture enthusiasts due to its high number of indigenous varietals like Pošip, Plavac Mali, and Tribidrag.
