The wine history of Croatia has very ancient origins: it was the Greeks who spread the cultivation of the vine in the peninsula, while the Romans later intensified the production. For a long time, due to the invasion of a parasite, the activity of the Croatian wineries collapsed, to then recover with great impetus in the most recent years. Currently, the production of wine affects, with different characteristics, the various regions of the Croatian country. For the quantity and, above all, for the quality of the wines, the vines of Istria and Dalmatia stand out. Also notable are the productions of the cellars in the Slavonian areas. Plains, mountains and coastline alternate in the Croatian land, giving life to precious grapes full of flavors of a thousand nuances. The climate, which varies between continental inland and Mediterranean in marine areas, also influences the quality of the vines in a different way. The terrain has a typically karstic composition, in which minerals, rocks and limestone predominate. While in Dalmatia the red wines abound, among which the most famous is the Crljenak Kanstelansky, followed by the Plavac Mali and the Babic, in the Istrian and Slavonian areas the white grape vines, like the Malvasia, the Grasevina, the Sauvignon, the Posip and the Pinot. Many of the Croatian wines have the certification of controlled denomination, introduced for about 30 years, and their production follows different techniques, ranging from the use of barrique to the use of barrels of steel, to give life not only to table wines but also to fine nectars and exclusive raisins.
