At the KORTA KATARINA winery we have one goal... to produce an excellent wine. KK's viticulturist and winemaker Nika Silic Maroevic uses her vast knowledge of the local terrain, born and raised in neighboring Korcula, to perfect the KK winemaking technique. Nika and the winegrowing team believe that great wine is a reflection of its origin. The wines made at KORTA KATARINA express the terrain of the Dalmatian Coast areas of the Dingac and Postup regions of the Peljesac Peninsula and the Cara region on the Island of Korcula.
An important part of managing the KK vineyards, is maintaining the balance between viticulture and nature. KORTA KATARINA believes in environmental responsibility and is dedicated to natural farming techniques. The KK winery practices traditional farming methods to ensure optimum grape quality.
Natural winegrowing for KORTA KATARINA winery means working in harmony with nature to produce the finest quality wines. Environmentally friendly practices include conserving soils and water, managing pests, and recycling water and materials.
Once the grapes ripen each cluster of KK grapes are hand-harvested and placed into small bins in order to avoid bruising and premature crushing. They are transported from the vineyard to the winery, hand sorted, de-stemmed, crushed and gravity flowed into the stainless steel fermenting tanks. The gentle handling of the fruit and the design of our "gravity flow" process ensures a delectable wine.
