Winemaker: The Begović cousins

Appellation: Dalmatia, Croatia 

Grape Variety: Plavina

This is a new wine, made for the first time in 2021. Embracing the minimal intervention approach in the cellar, hand-harvested grapes were destemmed and direct pressed to into a stainless steel tank to undergo spontaneous fermentation. Before fermentation was finished, the wine was bottled and left for 6 months on the lees. Roughly disgorged; no sulfur added.

Often overlooked in Dalmatian reds for its more robust peers like Plavac
Mali and Babić, Plavina is an incredible coastal red varietal that delivers Dalmatian terroir while maintaining freshness and elegance.

The whole point of Pomalo is to take it easy and not take things too seriously. So, nothing too technical here, except that you may find yourself with a serious obsession with this wine! This wine is so refreshing, fun, and packed juicy and refreshing pink and red fruits. This Pet Nat that captures everything about the pomalo lifestyle on the Dalmatian coast. Pair with sunsets, hammock naps, and straight fjaka (aka doing nothing).

The Begović cousins are two phenomenal winemakers from starkly different backgrounds - one based in the northeastern mountains of Slovenia, one based on the Dalmatian coast of Croatia — whom discovered their long-lost relation to each other over their mutual family lineage in the village of Kozice, Croatia.
