Matošević vina


Rating: Exquisite

Ivica Matošević, currently one of the most appreciated winemakers of Croatia, began to engage in winemaking in the middle nineties as a hobby and inspired by great enthusiasm; although lacking family background, within short he was able to achieve great results by opening an attractive wine tasting room over his cellar in the village of Krunčići. Even though his Chardonnay "Millenium Anima" won a silver medal at the competition "Chardonnay du Monde" held in France in 2002, his greatest desire was to produce the "best Malvasia" of his native village. At any rate, his malvasia was once proclaimed the best white wine of Croatia, more precisely, in 1999, only two years after he produced his first wine!
