The Producer

About Piližota

Ivica Piližota is a humble owner of a winery and vineyards in the inland locations surrounding the beautiful and historic town of Šibenik, in Central Dalmatia. Soil here is made up of mostly fertile red and brown top soil with finer brown clay stones, and a rugged and tough limestone foundation. The vineyard locations are on slopes or semi-slopes, with an altitude level of 50 to 300 meters above sea level. These vineyards see some of the warmer temperatures in Northern and Central Dalmatia, with interestingly cooler nights and constant salty breezes that whip around this hill and mountain crammed area. - Vinum USA

About the Region

Dalmatia, Croatia

Dalmatia, located along the Adriatic coast of Croatia, is renowned for its stunning landscapes, ancient cities, and rich winemaking tradition. In recent years, the region has also become a focal point for natural winemaking. With its diverse terroir, including limestone soils, coastal breezes, and ample sunshine, Dalmatia offers an ideal environment for sustainable viticulture. Natural winemakers here prioritize organic and biodynamic farming methods, cultivating indigenous grape varieties such as Plavac Mali, Posip, and Malvasia Istriana with minimal intervention. By eschewing chemical additives and focusing on natural fermentation, they produce wines that capture the essence of the land. Dalmatia's natural wines are known for their freshness, purity, and vibrant fruit flavors, with reds offering rich, spicy notes and whites showcasing crisp acidity and minerality.
