The special thing about wine from the Kabola family is its production using an amphora. This gives the Istrian Malvasia variety a whole new dimension.
"Through our hard work in the vineyards, we obtain grapes that are a reflection of our region and climate," says Kabola. "Without good grapes there are no great wines. This means that the production of a good wine begins at the vineyard. That's why we pay a lot of attention to the vine, to every last detail, and care for it like a baby".
The philosophy of the Kozlovic family is based on knowledge that has been preserved for generations. "We always pursue the same goal, with diligence and commitment. Our goal is to broaden the horizon of the wine world and to always keep our promise of quality. We guarantee this with our name".

Franc Arman's wine-growing region covers more than 8 hectares of hilly land in western Istria. It produces a specific type of wine whose characteristics are in perfect harmony with its surroundings.
The Arman family, led by father and son Franc and Oliver, continues the tradition of their ancestors who began growing wine in 1850. Grandfather Edoardo Arman cultivated the Malvasija and Teran varieties. Today, the Arman family is determined to continue its family tradition of winemaking and raise the bar to a new high.
