Wine makers



Husband and wife team, Giorgio and Vesna Clai, decided on a radical move in their lives about twenty years ago: they moved from Trieste to Krasica in the Buje area and started a small boutique winery with which they encouraged the production of a new style of wine on the Istrian wine scene - orange wine. From the very beginning, their wines were different, honest, much resembling older ones, and their model was that created by Joško Gravner’s, the famous Italian winemaker from Collio. At that point their most successful label Ottocento was created, which appears in both white and red variants. This was followed by one of the best Croatian red wines, Bromnonero, produced from refošk and Sv. Jakov, an aged Istrian malvasia, and then Tasel, a sweet white muscat made from dried grapes. This line is rounded off with the classic sparkling wine Brut natur made from malvasia, chardonnay and plavina varieties. In addition to wine, they are also present on the market with excellent olive oil and two grappa labels. The winery expanded in 2018, when new plantations were cultivated, new business partnerships were concluded, and two new labels were launched on the market from these new plantations: "Baracija malvazija" and "Baracija refošk".
