The favourable climate and fertile land have largely influenced the development of grapevines in Zadar County. Produced here most are red wines, which with their colour and refined tastes perfectly complement Dalmatian specialities.
The best-known wines come from Benkovac, where the Škaulj winery is that consists of 11.5 hectares of vine plantations where around 30 waggons of grapes are picked each year, giving around 200,000 bottles of premium wines. Their palate of products consists of six wines, of which four are red (two premium, two quality), one white and one premium dessert wine. These are Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Couvee Tomislav, named after their son Tomislav, and Maraština, which is produced from one of the best-known white sorts of grapes in southern Dalmatia. The wines are processed under the strictest ecological standards of production wherein every bottle carries an eco-label.
The best known of all the Škaulj family’s wines is Cabernet Sauvignon, of which they are particularly proud. This wine is one of the first premium wines in Zadar County that delighted a royal couple from Sweden. Their wines are also the official wines of the European Parliament.
Within the wine cellar there is also a tasting room for fifty people which is the perfect place for investigating their wines and socialising with friends.
