Mateo Vicelic

Mateo Vicelić has dedicated himself to re-vitalising this stunning limestone vineyard site that slopes from 1800 feet down to the coast.

His great grandfather achieved acclaim for the full-bodied red wine from the native Plavac Mali grape, a relative of Zinfandel, but the war years and subsequent austerity made wine-making for anything other than personal use not viable.

Now producing only 10,000 bottles from 3.5ha, but with plans to re-plant some of the additional 6ha in family ownership, there are just two wines produced, the early drinking, medium-bodied and aromatic red Plavac , and the more serious and ageworthy Dingač.
