The Benkovac Winery, built in the 1950’s, is based on chateau’s in the south of France. However, up until 2005, no French or international varietals were grown on its land. That changed when seedlings from France of Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Mourvedre were brought and planted in the dry, stony soils of the Korlat vineyard, just steps from the Adriatic Sea. At an elevation of 300 meters, with little rainfall throughout the year, the vineyard produces wines of distinction, with rich, complex, flavors and aromas.
