Plavina is a direct descendent of Tribidrag (aka Zinfandel). This fruit-forward, elegant, herbaceous and fresh light bodied red has been aged in Slavonian oak barrels for 12 months. 

Located in the village of Plastovo, the vineyards are planted just outside the village as well as on the hills above the town of Skradin, bordering the Krka National Park. This area has a unique microclimate influenced by the Krka River and Adriatic Sea, sitting at 250 meters above sea level and is characterized by cool nights and ample warm, sunny days.
