Krk's Wine Palette

Krk Island’s wine varieties have a story to tell.

Vrbnička žlahtina: A gem from Vrbnik, this wine is recognized for its pleasant aroma and mild bouquet, reminiscent of green apples and floral nuances. Recommended spots for tasting include the Ivan Katunar House of Wine.

Valomet: Matured in amphoras deep under the sea, Valomet offers a refreshingly crisp taste.
