Vinogradi Volarević

Our vineyard is located in the south of the beautiful Dalmatian coast, in the heart of Komarna, the youngest vineyard in Croatia. The story begins in 2005 with the reclamation of karst. The soil is very rocky, and it took a lot of hard work, mechanization and resources to be fertile. The procedure was carried out by removing thick roots and large stones that were grounded to a depth of 60 cm to ensure the best conditions for growing vines. The Komarna vineyards are a specific terroir on which the cultivation of autochthonous Croatian varieties such as Plavac Mali, Tribidrag (Crljenak Kastelanski, Zifandel), Pošip, and Maraština have proved excellent. Thus, the charming little coastal town, located 70 km northwest of Dubrovnik, has become known as an important Croatian wine micro location.

The whole area of ​​the vineyard is exposed to the south and has three types of insolation: sun-vine, sun-stone-vine, sun-sea-vine. Due to extreme conditions and high temperatures, the vineyard is also equipped with the irrigation system needed during dry periods to allow the vines to survive. Nadmorska visina: 72-132m
Godišnja insolacija: 2650h
Padavine: prosječno 750 mm
Veličina: 15 ha (12 ha vinove loze)
Tlo: litosol (vapnenac) postotak kamena: 50%

The authentic climate and soil in the Komarna region together make the right formula for organic grape growing. Rocky soil, high temperatures during the summer, constant Dalmatian winds, cold nights, harsh nature and biodiversity of flora and fauna create perfect conditions for grapes to develop to their best quality. Due to the difficult natural conditions and the strength of the Plavac mali berry, the minimum amounts of copper and sulfur prescribed by the Law on Organic Agriculture are used in cultivation.
