Our story

The winery, tradition and the brand

Bora is firmly steeped in the tradition of the region, the small Croatian town of Podgradina, warmed on one side by the warm currents of the Novigrad Sea and the Velebit bura on the other.

The Benkovac-Stankovac vineyards, where the winery is located, are an ideal position for growing grape vines, given that their orientation and height above the sea on which the vineyards are situated create the ideal soil for the best wines.

The local expression for a strong, persistent, mossy and cold wind is how Bora wines got its name. The wines are the best what a harsh climate and hard work have to offer. In this young winery that is expanding every day, as promised by the Žuža family to their ancestors that they would follow the guiding thoughts of their family on love, persistence and commitment to the land, today the most modern viticulture as well as winery know-who and technologies produce wines for enjoying the most refined tastes.

Visit our winery

“Bora is a celebration and rhythm of life. We produce wines for people who celebrate their every moment, those who dance and view every moment as an opportunity for enjoyment. Playful, yet precisely vinified, our wines emphasize the best traits of the region and terroir of the Benkovac-Stankovac vineyards.

In line with tradition, we have planted in our vineyards the traditional varieties of maraschino and pošip, svrdlovina and plavina, but have also ventured into producing traditional varieties like the sauvignon blanc, merlot, black grenache and syrah. As a family, we believe in creating and exploring new flavors, and it is how we also approach our wines.”
