Meet the pioneer of contemporary Croatian winemakers, Alen Bibić. His name often comes attached to the famous regional white wine, Debit, that he himself brought back from the realm of table wines, adorning it with newfound respect. Alen obviously did something right when he revived his grandfather’s vineyards which were decimated during the 1990's war, as his revolutionary blends soon made him the first Croatian winemaker to export to the US. His passion and knowledge on wine production, as well as the gourmet magic he creates in tandem with his wife Vesna, were recognized by Anthony Bourdain, resulting in Bibich and Skradin being featured as one of the Croatian highlights on the famous 'No Reservations’.
A private winery near the magical Skradin
Not only did he revolutionize thinking about the Debit variety, but Alen and his family have created a stunning destination winery in the hills just above Skradin, in the bucolic village of Plastovo. The area is downright magical, overlooking Krka River put on its best show of canyons and cascading waterfalls just before its mouth joins the Adriatic Sea in one fell swoop.
An exquisite food and wine pairing
