Cattunar Franco and his wife Vesna began producing wine professionally in 1985, as some of the first private wine growers and makers in Croatia.
The vineyards cover 56 hectares and include indigenous varieties such as Malvazija istarska, Teran, Muscat Blanc of Momiano, and Muscat Rose of Poreč, as well as other varieties such as Chardonnay, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon. The winery produces still and sparkling wines, with an annual production of 350,000 liters. The unique location of the vineyards on four different types of soil - red, white, gray, and black - adds to the winery's character.
The Cattunar winery is situated in Nova Vas, close to Brtonigla. The newly-built wine cellar has a capacity of 5,000 hl and is surrounded by more than 56 hectares of vineyards. The winery organizes visits with wine tasting just 5-6 km from the sea. The visit starts with a general presentation of the winery and wine cellar, followed by a presentation of the wines produced and wine tasting. Visits are organized in Croatian, Italian, and English.
