Stina

Srednja i Južna Dalmacija

The beautiful stone of Brač is an inspiration to many artists. Its whiteness, contours and hardness inspire every architect, sculptor, painter, as well as winegrower. In fact, this stone was the muse of the creation of one of the most awarded wines called by a unique name – Stina. About it the owners say: “Stina is a field full of stones, where the art is to create a wine of a luxuriant taste”.

The vineyards are planted at 420 to 550 metres above the sea on a plateau that descends gently towards the sea in an east-south-easterly direction. On them are cultivated famous sorts such as Pošip, Plavac, Crljenak, better known as Zinfindel, Vugava and Cuvée, which is obtained from three sorts – Vugava, Pošip and Chardonnay. The grapes are hand-picked and processed in the modernly equipped Podrum Bol cellar.

However, what is wine without a good tasting and the enjoyment of a few drops of wine. They also know this in the company Jako Vino d.o.o., which in 2009, whilst owned by Jako Andabak, rented a cellar from the Bol agricultural cooperative and so began an era of the production of award winning wines.

They renovated the cellar and planted new grapevine seedlings. The Stina winery is a place where you will be able to try excellent Dalmatian wines, find out more about wines, as well as about why Stina is one of the most modernly arranged and equipped wine cellars in Croatia, with a rich tradition they have also recognised in many world destinations.

The place where this premium wine is produced is called Podrum Bol, which was built way back in 1903, and they received the first gold medal for the wine from this cellar in Paris back in 1909 at an international wine exhibition.

Description:

Stina, a mark of the island of Brač, is the title of this excellent wine, a product of a luxuriant taste. Even the packaging label is inspired by the white stone of Brač. The packaging has won many awards, amongst which is the best packaging in Europe in Helsinki plus the award for third best packaging in the world from the prestigious Art Directors Club in New York.

The renovated old vineyards and supporting structures in order to acquire new land for the planting of vines affected the restoration of winegrowing on the entire island – and new vineyards were planted. The traditional method of cultivation, without armature, has been retained and all crop management is done exclusively by hand.

The particularity of the location, besides the rockiness, is also reflected in the altitude of the vineyards. The vineyards are planted at 420 to 550 metres above the sea on a plateau that descends gently towards the sea in an east-south-easterly direction.
The winery is open to connoisseurs of excellent wines, as well as wine amateurs, and sommeliers and oenologists will find their ideal wine, which can be bought immediately on the site.
