Kabola Wines


If only the wine Malvasia Amfora were to come from his wine cellar, Marino Markežić Kabola would still be one of the most important vintners in Croatia. He was the first on the market to release wine of grapes macerated for months in clay pot buried in the ground, then for years matured in a wooden barrel and bottle, and then delighted the more demanding wine audience.

“The wine from the amphora is the crown of our effort. Here nature and land have rewarded us the most so that the Istrian Malvasia has gained a new dimension. With the extended fermentation in amphorae, and the resting of the wine without the removal of the marc and sediment until late in the spring, the Malvasia showed its nobleness. The grapes come from the earth and give their juice to the earth in order that it turns it into wine”, says of the amphora Marino Markežić whose brand Kabola even before the crucial 2005 harvest from which the first Croatian amphora came, was a synonym for trustworthy wines. And it still is today.

In Momjan, in a beautiful stone winery surrounded by vineyards, Marino works and the wines are: Istrian Malvasia, Malvasia Unica, Momjan Muscat, Sparkling wine RE (by Champagne method of secondary fermentation in the bottle), Teran, Merlot, Cabernet, rosé Rosa… Production is ecological under the motto “nurturing wine is not a job, it’s our life”.
