The Benvenuti family has been making wine for as long as anyone can remember, working with local indigenous varietals in the quiet village of Kaldir. Artifacts in the vineyards, such as clay jugs, date back to the Roman period, showing the influence wine has had on the region for centuries.

The local grape, Malvazija Istarska grows on white marl, rich in clay and limestone, from the remnants of an ancient prehistoric sea. The terraced vineyards sit between 250-400 meters above sea level. Hand-harvested in the early morning, the bunches are destemmed & pressed, then transferred to cool inox tanks for natural fermentation with wild yeasts for 30-45 days.

harmonious & full-bodied, with aromas of citrus, meadow flowers, elderberry, and salt. Notes of lemon, elderflower and acacia flowers grace the palate, with touches of marzipan, sour apple, and vineyard peach. A salty minerality carries through on the light, lively finish. Exceptionally fresh and mineral driven, it’s a great match for oysters, grilled white fish, spring salads or vegetable risotto.

100% Malvazija Istarska. Organic. Natural.
