Croatia and Slovenia have, along with Greece, the longest winemaking history in Europe that pre-dates even the Roman Empire. The perfect climatic conditions and the hands-on care of traditional winemaking result in wines that are top-quality and world class.
Vinum USA is the leading importer of Croatian and Slovenian wines in the USA. We take exceptional pride in our portfolio of wines, which represents a wide-range of artisanal winemakers from the regions located around the Adriatic Sea. Our emphasis has been placed on naturally crafted wines that express their origin and local character. Most of the wines in our portfolio are made from preserved local grape varieties such as Plavac Mali, Pošip, Malvasia Istriana, Refošk, Teran, Crljenak Kaštelanski (original Zinfandel), Maraština, Babić, Klarnica, Graševina (Welschriesling) and Žlahtina. However, we have tremendous wines made from international varieties shaped by small winemakers into confident wines with a local identity and an affinity for a wide variety of fare.
