Vinas Mora Barbba
Krešo Petrekovic, a former somm, wine professional, and importer in New York, found himself stuck in his coastal house in Primošten as a result of the pandemic. Passionate about the area, its unique terroir, and indigenous varieties, Krešo always advocates drinking wines made by the local farmers who have no or very little commercial success. This zeal is how he found Josipa and Neno Marinov, a local couple producing wine “as their elders did 100 years ago, with some improvements.” The pair was selling wines in plastic bottles on the side of the road.
Together they discovered the nearly-abandoned winemaking facilities of a local co-op. The closing of the co-op would have devastating effects on the entire local wine-growing community. The opportunity to take over was too good to pass on, and it was also necessary to keep the tradition alive. Joined by another friend and wine professional, Niko Dukan, the three of them founded Vinas Mora, with Krešo at its helm. All wines are organic, biodynamic, and unfiltered. They are also incredibly delicious. This is a wine you could drink all summer long, and probably should.
