Bolfan


Tomislav Bolfan is one of the most important winemakers from the Zagorje area. Every year he wins awards at the Decanter World Cup awards ceremony. As Tomislav says; the peak in wine production is  completely natural wines and we wish to achieve that by implementing a 100 % natural method of vine growing, followed by processing must into wine”.
Fresh wine, different mineral and fruity natural aromas, flowery varietal fragrances, for people who look for more, people who can recognize the difference. Bolfan Vinski Vrh’s philosophy is that wine is made for personal pleasure, relaxation, socializing and special occasions/moments.

Terroir

Vines have grown at the site of Bolfan Vinski Vrh, Croatia, for thousands of years. Dating as far back as the Roman Empire, the Bolfan Estate has been the site where many wines have been produced and tasted. With thousands of years to practice their craft, it’s no wonder this charming winery is home to so many award-winning wines.

The Four Soils Project

Four distinct soil types have been identified in the Cattunar vineyards by a panel of five scientists:
1.Žmergo location is on gray soil (“siva zemlja”), a dusty soil with 25% of lime share.
2.Škrinjarilocation is on black soil (“crna zemlja”), which is, in fact, brown soil on the marl stone.
3.Grun location is on red soil (“crvena zemlja”), a typical Istrian terra rossa.
4.Škrilne location is on white soil (“bijela zemlja”), which is of similar composition to gray soil but with a larger share of lime (27%).

Unique Variety

Due to the four soils phenomena, the Cattunar family are proud to be the first to produce distinctly different wines in the same vintage - in the same vineyard.
