STORY BEHIND - MARIJAN ARMAN WINES
We owe our love for winemaking to Marijan’s great-grandfather Ivan Arman, who planted the first vineyard way back in the 1880s. Passed from generation to generation (from father to son, from grandfather to grandson), passion for the Istrian land and the knowledge about viticulture and wine has gradually become our reason to live.
Marijan eagerly worked on introducing new technologies and skill sets, and in the mid-1990s managed to transform the traditional winemaking process. During this period, the so-called ‘New Wine Era’, the winery achieved its first notable success in the market and emerged as one of the mavericks of modern, top-quality winemaking. Today, Marijan keeps the tradition alive with the help of his daughters Ines and Nina, with an accent on the native Istrian varieties of Malvasia and Teran.
