Kraljević claims that their wines are not made in the wine cellar but in the vineyard. That is a short summary of the philosophy behind CUJ winery, situated in Istria, the Northern part of the Croatian Adriatic coast. Istria is often called ‘the Tuscany of Croatia’ because of its picturesque landscape, hill towns and tradition of wine and olive oil production.
An immense respect for the soil is the reason CUJ winery produces authentic Istrian wine. They make malvasia, muscat and teran (terrano). It is these varieties that present the greatest inspiration and challenge to Kraljević.
