The Royal Vineyards

In the year 1066. the Croatian King Petar Krešimir IV. donated vineyards to the newly established Benedictine monastery of St.Mary in Zadar, which was led by its sister, a nun Čika, a great-granddaughter of the Queen Jelena and the Croatian king Mihajlo Krešimir II.

In 1072. a nun Čika bought the first vineyards in Petrčane (Petrzane,) and since those times the abbey has had in possession the vineyards on their property. And this distinctive, consistent and smooth wine originates from this property.

Enjoy the intense aroma of wines with a hint of stone on which the reeds in grapes collect blessings of Zadar pleasant Mediterranean climate.
