Due to its ideal climate and furtile soil, Croatia produces a lot of wine. As a fun tidbit for the wine nerds, it is also the origin of the Zinfandel grape, which is popular in California grape. The original grape in Croatia is called Crljenak Kaštelanski.
Becase of these ideal conditions, there are a lot of domestic wine producers in Croatia. One producer that stands out however is Mas Vin, known for it’s award winning organic wines. They incidentally also do produce a great Crljenak.
Located less than a 30 minute by car from Villa Lava, Mas Vin makes for a great destination if you either want to sample some local wines, or buy a larger quantity of wines to bring home with you.
As mentioned earlier, what really sets Mas Vin apart from most other local producers is that they are a certified organic and ecologic grower. Having tasted lots of Croatian wines over the years, we can attest to that their wine is of the highest quality.
In addition to wines, Mas Vin also produces organic olives oil.
For smaller groups, you can usually visit without reaching out ahead of time, but for larger groups, we recommend that you get in touch with Mas Vin ahead of time.
