Although it has only recently appeared on the market, the Birin winery has a long history. For generations has the land in our family been farmed with Mediterranean cultures such as olives, figs, wine and cherry. However, what we continuously do and where we feel most comfortable is wine and olive growing. For years and years, the quality material has been coming from the area mostly farmed and that is the vine area. Today we have 6 etiquettes in the production and the total amount of the production is 20 thousand liters per year which makes about 25 000 bottles.
We plant autochthonous sorts from this region in our vineyards: Debit and Maraština from the white sorts and Plavina, Lasin and Babić from the red sorts. The Birin winery has in its possession 2 ha of vineyard from which 1.2 ha are young plantations and the rest are somewhat older vineyards. All our vineyards are situated on red soil with a small percentage of stone. Because of the mentioned terrain our wines have a different personality from the vineyards which are grown on white soil or only in the stones.
The Birin wines are processed, vinified, schooled and aged in a 160 m2 big wine cellar situated in the ground. The cellar is equipped with necessary tools and machines which make sure that all our wines (grapes) with our acquired experience and knowledge get the best possible treatment in processing and in aging. This gives us hope that it will satisfy the taste buds of many wine enthusiasts and all who want to enjoy the fruits of our labor.
