Investing in a passion
The story of Anton Kovač and Putalj winery is a story of passion. Only a few people in the world have a true love in something as simple as wine. Anton does. Upon selling a large chunk of land to a supermarket chain Anton decided, that rather than retiring, he will invest in something he adores. Fast forward a few years and Anton is sitting in a modern cellar, with a newly planted Zinfandel vineyard. Located in Kaštel Sućurac, the first of seven towns of Kaštela, Anton works his own vineyard at 400 m altitude by hand, and year after year produces better and better wines. Anton has also planted Plavac Mali (the widely popular Zinfandel offspring) and has started to experiment with a rose wine made from Zinfandel (dry, not connected to Franzia’s White Zinfandel “style” in any shape or form).
If you want to set up a tasting at the winery, go see the 400m high vineyard and learn more about the true origins of Zinfandel join us on our “The Birthplace of Zinfandel” tour or contact us for a separate winery visit. Anton is always glad to meet wine enthusiasts from around the world and will welcome you with a selection of his wines and incredible cheese, oil and bread.
