A long tradition of winemaking in family Štimac dates far in the begging of the 20th century. First vines were planted by great grandfather Štimac, Mihovil Popich, also known as Rizman. Since 2006, they cultivate vines in the youngest winegrowing region in Croatia – Komarna – with 22 ha of new vineyards. Clean and pure vineyards allowed the biodynamic cultivation of grapes.
The vineyards are located in Komarna. These plots on hills are 250 meters above sea level until zero meters of sea level. Soil is mostly limestone with a small portion of the earth. All positions are south and south-west facing slopes with more than 2600 hours of sun exposure. A lot of winds allow the biodynamic approach in winemaking.
Nonno is Pošip which is aged in oak barrels and it is a homage to Mihovil Popich Rizman the great grandfather who is the person behind the winery’s name. Selected bunches, low yields, and cold maceration bring the structure to this Pošip with creamy texture and notes of Golden Delicious apple, tropical notes of banana, pineapple and subtle elements of oak and spices.
