On the picturesque hills above Petrčane and Punta Skala the vineyards were erected in the extreme conditions, on the rocky soil with an optimum slope towards southwest and with constant circulation of the air, from the sea and as well from Velebit.
Top quality grapes from the stone vineyards and excellent taste of wines are the results of a special microclimate, its position by the sea and a full day of direct sun exposure, on average 2600 hours per year.
Petrčane is in unique harmony with nature, with impressive landscape colours of green vineyards, with blue sky, hot sun and clear blue sea. The view from the vineyards is overlooking the city of Zadar, the islands of the Zadar archipelago and Velebit.
The vineyard stretches 1km in width, 8m above the sea and up to 43m above sea level altitude. Growing vines on the slopes of 700m with inclination of 30 ° allows continuous flow of the air from the sea as well as cold and fresh air from Velebit which descends from the height of 1600 m (bura) and dries soil.
