“Zinfandel from Croatia!!!”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

Had no idea Zinfandel was an original Croatian varietal before I arrived. Had luck to find Anton and his winery where he took me through a tasting of three of his wines with his own olive oil and cheese. Great visit and a great guy!

“Anton - an energetic winemaker”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

We got info about Anton's winery in the tourist office in Split, and proceeded to email the winemaker who was kind enough to pick us up at our hotel and drive us to his small, boutique winery. He let us taste wines from the tanks and barrels and served amazing cheese with his own olive oil and an strong aromatic Zinfandel. Anton is really passionate and deserves more attention!

“Origin of Zinfandel”
Reviewed February 5, 2014

After reading about the history of Zinfandel and its travel from Croatia to USA i was really curious about how the original (Crljenak Kastenaski) tasted. Oh boy, was that a good decision. Anton welcomed us in his charming family winery and threw a slew of delicacies and wine on us. I cant decide do i like the fresh rose or the strong Zinfandel better. Great visit.

“Chill out tip for Kaštela region”
Reviewed February 5, 2014

In an effort to try some local wine in Split we ran into a flyer for Putalj winery. After some trouble getting my phone to work i got a hold of Anton who picked us up in Split and took us for a drive to his winery (built as an extension of his house). It was really fun to see somebody fully immersed in their work. His wines, olive oil(!!) and cheeses were all great and we spent part of the afternoon sipping vino and enjoying a pleasant conversation with the winemaker.
