Our story. Our Wine Store.

Croatian fine wine in Ireland.

Liliane Scully was originally known for her property development and sales company Adriatic Riviera which specialized in apartment sales to Irish and UK nationals in the greater Istrian region. It did not take her long to realise her passion for sourcing artisan-produced wines and this aided her transition from property developer to craft a dynamic niche wine importation business. She has cultivated a strong and personable relationship with her principals in Istria and has developed an excellent understanding of the wine producers’ viticultural philosophy and winemaking techniques. Her Adriatico wine store is eager to share these secrets with the Irish audience.
