How Much Wine are Croats Drinking Per Year?

The Ministry of Agriculture in early December adopted a new Ordinance on the register of vineyards, compulsory declarations, accompanying documents, records of stocks and production potential which prescribes a unique treatment in the control of quality wines in wine marketing. Precisely, the new regulations will now ensure that all foreign wines that come in bulk to our market will have to be recorded and have an agricultural inspection in order to control the quality. Now, everyone will have equal treatment in the market, for both domestic and foreign wines, which is first and foremost the rule of fair competition. This also protects domestic producers of wine.

Split's Best Wine Bars Going Into the 2016 Summer Season

When it comes to drinking wine, the people of Split are no strangers. Whether they be drinking a cold white during a hot summer lunch, or opt for a bold red in the winter, I’m sure they’d like to consider themselves aficionados in the area. Many families in the Dalmatia region produce their own wines, and with the ever growing population of Croatian winemakers and vineyards popping up along the Dalmatian coast, it’s no surprise that Split has more than a few wine bars for your drinking pleasure. Here are some of the most popular wine bars going into the 2016 season - establishments where locals and tourists will find a safe haven to wine and dine.


Perhaps the most popular after the last summer season is Wine and Cheese Bar Paradox. Having opened in June of 2012, Wine and Cheese Bar Paradox was the first official wine bar in the city. Although not a full service restaurant, this wine and cheese bar offers over 100 wine labels (with over half of the wines served by the glass) as well as small bites including cheeses, prosciutto and olives. Located just a few minutes outside of the palace on Poljana Tina Ujevića 2, the staff are more than knowledgeable and the ambiance is set with custom designed elm and oak furniture placed amongst the exposed stone walls. They also offer the largest selection of artisan cheeses in Croatia!


Next we have Zinfandel Food and Wine Bar, entering the wine bar scene in May of 2013. With over 100 bottled wines and an extensive list of 30 wines by the glass, Zinfandel’s wines are delivered either straight from the vineyard from Croatian’s most renowned estates or from boutique winemakers. Their menu is focused on seasonal ingredients with an ever changing menu depending on the season. They also offer an a la carte menu with a modern twist on much loved Dalmatian classics. Located within the palace on Ulica Marka Marulića 2, you can’t miss it!


Lastly we have La Bodega Wine Bar, having opened in Split in the summer of 2015. With previous locations in Zagreb, Zadar, and Dubrovnik, it was just a matter of time before they opened their doors to the people of Split. La Bodega is a premium wine cellar, fitted with superb local wines and snacks of quality domestic hams and cheeses. The largest of the three on this list, La Bodega is located directly around the corner from Voćni Trg on Mihovilova širina 1. This central location is always filled with patrons and lively music. Another perk? They also serve a continental brunch!


Thirsty yet? I know we are!
