Ivica Matosevic is considered one of the superstars of the Croatian wine world, and the leading light of Istrian winemaking today, producing high quality wines from indigenous varieties. He established the winery in 1996, starting from scratch, without a long standing family tradition. His motives were pure passion, curiosity and love of wine. After his formal education in Italy , his first attempts and successes with wine took place in the village of Kruncici, Istria. One of the first to experiment with aging Malvesia in acacia rather than oak, Matosevic focuses mainly on Malvasia and Chardonnay, but his single red is also superb. His grapes come from two vineyard locations, Buje in northwest Istria and Grimalda in central Istria. In Buje he contracts 15 hectares of vineyards and in Grimalda he owns 10 hectares of vineyards all organic.
