Ivica Matosevic

I studied horticulture and landscaping in the Faculty of Agronomy at the University of Zagreb. Ivica Matošević (is considered one of the superstars of the Croatian wine world, and the leading light of Istrian winemaking today, producing high-quality wines from indigenous varieties. He established his winery in 1996, starting from scratch, without a long-standing family tradition. His motives were pure passion, curiosity, and love of wine. After his formal education in Italy, his first attempts and successes with wine took place in the village of Kruncici, Istria. One of the first to experiment with aging Malvasia in acacia rather than oak, Matošević focuses mainly on Malvasia and Chardonnay, but his single red wine is also superb. (Source)
