About Babic grape variety:
Babić is the local Dalmatian red grape variety, originating from the UNESCO-protected Bucavac vineyard only 10 km from Testament Winery. The Testament vineyard, planted 10 years ago, is located on hills sloping down towards the Adriatic Sea, providing a permanent breeze that is evident in the wines. The vines grow in harsh conditions – in limestone karst with less than 20% soil – thus committing themselves to producing premium grapes.
