About our wine

Our vineyards are located on the southern slopes of island of Brac. They are in our family for last two centuries. The secrets of production have been transferd from one generation to another. In time we upgraded our production process with full organic farming and later on with biodynamical winemaking.
Our wine has protected denomination of origin Zagradac Mali. We make two types of wine. First is pure red wine Plavac Mali, while second is Rose. You can try and buy our wine in our Camp Aloa.

Our Production

We consider organic production paramount in winemaking. Because of this we have few smaller vineyards in few diffrent locations, all located on the southern slopes of Brac, and few kilometers from each other. There is no use of any additives in production or chemicals in the maintenance of the vineyards. As the result of this kind of production we have very limited quantities of grapes and wine.
After seeing results of organic and traditional production we started to digg fruther into the history of production. This is how we started using biodynamic winemaking in our process.
Please visit our reception to get more information.

Biodynamical wine is elegant, sips go down Your throat easily one after another. There is also advantage of much slower oxidation, so when You open a bottle it can stay that way for the week or more without losing taste or overall quality!
Most of the mass of grapes is formed by photosynthesis - processing of pure energy into matter!
The grapes are created by two forces. First is gravity and second is the Sun. During the winter gravitational force is too strong and as the consequence, nothing is growing. In the spring the forces are balanced so the vineyard is growing, and during the summer, the Sun becomes too powerfull so the vine is trying to protect the seed with the layers of grapes.

Our main goal with this process is to complete this transformation of production, so we have a terroire, the wine that will preserve soil, climate, sort and man.

About our Olive Oil and Spirits

As in the wine our tradition stretches in the production of olive oil and spirits. Our extra virgin olive oil comes from the olive grooves located in the south part of the island of Brac by the sea. Our extra virgin olive oil is made by all standards of organic farming and production.
We also make wide range of spirits all made from the fruits and local herbs. There is famous Loza from grapes, Visnjevac from cherry, and also ones from walnut, fig and myrtle!
