Ivan Katunar is one of the most distinguished winemakers from island Krk, where indigenous Žlahtina grapes are planted centuries ago.
His passion is to get the most from this lovely grape. He also plans another ancient grape called Sansigot, which gives nice elegant red wines similar in style to Burgundian Pinot's.
Ideal south-southwest orientation, the sea and excellent ventilation allow organic cultivation in the full sense, with very little need for protective treatment of vines. The microclimate of Baška with its number of sunny hours, with the sea reflecting the sun, and the flatness of the reflection of large limestone surface area enable an insolation above the average and untypical advanced vegetation of the Kvarner region. The ground itself is a mixture of the red soil of sand and stone and the pH is high.
