Korlat – wine that grew out of stone
Sizzling sun and dry, windy ground of Benkovac – Stankovci wine hills are responsible for the colorful character of Benkovac wines. Benkovac winery is situated on a civilization crossroad.
The village Korlat is situated close by and it is named after Croatian noble family Korlatović. The vineyard Korlat is planted right next to the village; surrounded with Mediterranean herbs and bushes, facing the glorious Adriatic Sea! The grapevine literally grows out of stone, which contributes heavily to its excellent quality which resulted in 10 international medals on Decanter, VinItaly, Paris wine fair and Bruxelles in a first year!
One should taste Korlat wines directly at the source, using the authentic wooden wine cup called "Bukara", together with the local gastronomic delicacies: duck stew, prisnac or lamb roast. Be careful, you are in great danger of developing a serious addiction to finer things in life and those are for sure our already world famous Korlat Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
