Native wine varieties

Here, in the red Istrian soil, Coronica vineyards and vines are growing, and, as far as the nature allows, the highest possible quality grapes of our indigenous varieties – predominantly Istrian Malvasia and Teran. Most of the time we are committed to working with these two varieties. They have always told a story about the Coronica family as Istrian farmers, contadini, who have been taking care of the land just as if it was one of their own family - because it is indeed precisely that, and has been - for decades!

Depending on the method of production and aging, we produce two Istrian Malvasias, a fresh and an aged Malvasia, each of which reflects best the features of this white variety. Our pride among the red wines is Gran Teran, a wine of an authentic Istrian character produced from an indigenous Istrian variety.
