"Not to taste Croatian wine is the same as not to see the colours." - Tin Ujević

Croatian Wine Organization is a practical and informative website, designed for people who enjoy wine either casually or with great curiosity and vigor. The most common problem encountered by wine lovers when visiting a wine region that they’re unfamiliar with is how to spend their limited amount of time sifting through all the wines and producers on the shelves. This website will provide the pertinent information to maximize a visitor’s time and pleasure in Croatia.

Croatia welcomes more than 11 million visitors each year. The challenge for Croatia as a wine destination is that their experience of the local flavors tends to be incidental. Often, visitors bounce around the country swiftly and end up tasting some substandard, local wines that make them think that Croatia produces only cheap and average-tasting wines. The truth can't be further from that. Croatia is making some of the most exciting wines in Europe. Let us help you find them!

While Croatia is a young country, its wine history dates back to over 2,500 years ago.

In the early 1990s, as the grip of socialism loosened and Croatia gained independence, small-production wineries that focused on quality began to surface throughout the country. Joining the European Union in 2013, the membership brought along subsidies for private producers, which further aided the improvement in the quality of Croatian wine.

Today, there are around 40 indigenous grape varieties, on top of more than a hundred international varieties, that are widely used for commercial wine production among the 4,000-something registered wine producers. Based on a study conducted in 2015, Croatia ranks third in the world in wine consumption per capita at 44.2 liters – nearly 59 bottles of wine per person annually.
