Plavina is a variety with a typical Dalmatian character. Although with lower alcohols and softer tannins, but with a higher acidity which at the same time makes it extremely enjoyable. Aged in Slavonian oak barrels for 12 months. Juicy cherry, plum, and dalmatian spices, ingested with minerals, end with a herbal and earthy note.

Sladić Ante Winery is a family winery in Plastovo, on a hill above Skradin, near the Krka National Park. They uncompromisingly believe in indigenous varieties and invest enormous effort in vineyard and wine cellar while respecting tradition and nature. It is a winery with a long tradition and great passion for winemaking. The microclimate at an altitude of 250 m created by a unique combination of River Krka and the Adriatic Sea. Enriched with the soil formed under the influence of the sea and a river that once ran in that area has produced a lot of limestones and a mixture of different soil that gives minerality and allows creating wines of various styles and qualities. Plavina is from the Dalmatian family, Babic, Plavac mali, Tribidrag and other famous varieties.

Bottle size 0.75 L
Alcohol 14 %
  • Earth
  • Leather
  • Minerality
  • Spices

An example how non-fruit aromatics can be as abundant as the conventional fruit driven. Carob, mint and sage, conifer resin and other associations in complex interplay persist forever. Grippy tannins and a rare find in Plavac wines, a cold presence of sun enriched grapes.

  • Beef
  • Hard cheese
  • Spaghetti bolognese
  • Tuna

Many like to use the phrase “the wine is made in the vineyard” but in Bedalov wines, that can be truly felt. On the highest slopes overseeing Kaštela bay, the diligent hands of Jakša Bedalov inherits the family passion of winemaking. This means nurturing of indigenous varieties and hard work enabling the natural eco-system to thrive, for the most gorgeous of Dalmatian fruit – Crljenak (Zinfandel), Dobričić, Plavac, Maraština. Determined by the terroir, vintage and variety, it is perhaps the highest achievement not to perceive the winemaker who made it happen.

A dry red wine, the Crljenak or Tribidrag variety is known and widespread in the world as Zinfandel, and it has only recently been proven that Zinfandel originates from the Croatia, where it is almost completely extinct. The wine is produced from grapes from a single vineyard. It is located on the north side of the island of Brač, in a position suitable for the growth and development of this variety. Harvest is, like all other interventions in the vineyard, done by hand. Brač stone has always been a source of inspiration due to its beauty, but it is also a symbol of hardship when it comes to viticulture and viniculture. And that is where the inspiration for the name STINA comes from. In the Dalmatian dialect, this word means stone, the strongest symbol of the island of Brač.
