Baraka Winery, Delivering Top-Notch Croatian Wines
Situated near the Krka River, St. Anthony Channel, and the Adriatic Sea, Baraka Winery has its roots in the heart of the Dalmatia region. Surrounded by vineyards, the estate is built with stone walls, located next to Basilica Gemini from the sixth century. With a focus on quality and tradition, the winery strives to deliver top-notch Croatian wines grown in their rich terroir.
Expansion of the Winery
Baraka Winery origins date back to the late 1980s as the family began producing wines from the grapes of its friend’s vineyards. Initially, they produced wines only for themselves and friends, opened on special events, gatherings, and reunions. Later, Gordan Baraka decided to expand the business and planted his first vineyard in 2005 in Šibenik. In 2013, a new wine cellar was built, enhanced by the traditional architectural style of Dalmatia. Today, Filip Baraka owns the winery, where he produces delicious red, white, and rosé wines.
Scenic Location and High-Quality Grape Varieties
Today, the estate-owned vines of Baraka Winery stretch over four hectares, housing over 11500 grapevines. The staff grows a broad range of vines, including both local and international varieties. They include high-quality Babić, Plavina, Debit, Maraština, Syrah, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon.
Baraka Winery also cultivates 360 olive groves and several other Mediterranean plants that cover the vineyards in all directions, creating a mesmerizing view.
Over the years, the estate has introduced vast technological advancements in the cellar. A twenty-meters long aging room, a dedicated bottling room, and a well-furnished tasting room, overlooking the scenic setting, can be seen during a visit.
