Oral traditions of secrets of the craft of Skelin Winery

Although the family vineyard Livada where the Skelin wine story started, is situated in walking proximity of the wine resort, the primary source of grapes for all Skelin’s wines is spread over 23 ha in the rear of the village Drinovci. It houses more than 130 000 grape vines, that provide the precious juice, whether for the domestic, more autonomous sorts like maraština, debit, plavina, and lasina, or to the newly planted sorts like Shiraz Alicante, Posip, and Yelow Moscato. The ideal climate helps the grapes to achieve their maturity and full wine potential, where you can taste traditional red and white wines, full of mighty, deep colors, and bold fruitful tastes, offering you whiffs of divine character and superior quality.

If you expect something in the line of the traditional Dalmatian dark, musky cellar called „konoba“, you might be disappointed. The Skelin Winery is a modern, advanced technology-equipped winery, where the tradition and family secrets of making wine are joined with up-to-date knowledge on coupage, picking, harvesting, testing, and maturing in controlled conditions. These practices bring the specially created taste of the labels that Skelin Winery is proud of.

A combination of Tradition and Modern Wine-making methods

Skelin Winery aims to top quality as a new step in the development of the family winery and to secure a prominent position on the Croatian wine map for the wine resort. They are investing a lot of care, love, and attention to the labels that they want to present themselves. Attending the numerous wine events of Miljevci and the Šibensko-kninska county, the winery presents its labels to the local community, where its quality is rewarded with numerous plaquettes hanging on the walls. Although this part of Dalmatia is well-known for its white wine labels, Skelin Winery especially brings a new fresh approach, with the top quality red wine labels. However, if you are a fan of white wines, Skelin Winery offers a wide range of autochthonous white wines, not just in their restaurant, but they also supply numerous restaurants on the nearby coast. Some of the bottles could be found also in specialized wine shops.

Restaurant Amfora

Gastro Delicacies which are told about far and wide. Start your gourmet expedition with a local tradition to clean your palate with the nip of one of the domestically made brandies „rakije“, which varies from traditional “travarica” or “loza” to „višnjevača“ (cherry), “rogačica” (carob), “orahovica” (walnut) and „šipkovača“ (rose hip). There is a hidden gem in the offer, so asking for the “special brandy from wine” is recommended, because “Merlotino” will be brought to you only on a special request.

The dishes under the bell („jela ispod peke“) are perfectly combined with the Skelin Winery labels such as „Starac“, „Garac“ and „Vris“ (white wine). The covered terrace will offer a perfect, cool shade while you taste the fish and octopus provided on the menu since the village of Drinovci is so close to the coast. Tasteful bites garnered with the home labels will satisfy the tastes of even the most demanding eaters.
