Vinas Mora is a winery on the coast of Croatia. It is a Co-Op that buys grapes from local growers who farm the historic vineyards around the town of Primosten. It is a project started by a wine veteran Kreso Petrekovic, who has been working with Zev Rovine Selections based in New York City, for over 15 years. He is joined by another veteran, Niko Dukan, as well as a local winemaker, Neno Marinov. The trio made their first wines in 2020 in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic and started releasing them in the summer of 2021, when they became an immediate success.
Vinas Mora is a play on words in Croatian and it means "Wines from the Sea", depicting the terroir and landscape of the area. The vineyards are very dry and exposed to a lot of wind, so the disease pressure here is very minimal, allowing for undemanding organic farming. Thus, Vinas Mora gets only organically farmed grapes, some of which are certified and some which are not simply because it doesn't make any financial sense for a grower to do so considering some of them have plots that are under a hectare.
We are dedicated to craft wine. Real wine produced by real people in limited quantity, from the new generation of natural winemakers to the classic high-end Burgundians. Sorry, no industrial wine here!
We are not just another Direct-to-Consumer website. Actually, we don't sell directly to consumers at all, as we believe selling wine is an art. We don't want to replace it, rather just make it easier, so you can focus on the art.
We believe the trade should be as fluid as wine. Processes, information and transactions should flow as a fine wine, in and out of a Zalto glass. That's where a Digital Platform can help.
For the wine market to be healthy, firstly it must take care of the producers. We believe that the trade should be fair and transparent, across all channels, from the producer to the final consumer.
