Rossi Winery is located in Bajkini, Vižinada Municipality, and we spoke with Luka Rossi, the older brother of the 5th generation of this wine family.
We are the 5th generation in the Rossi family winery and distillery. Our philosophy is that wine is produced in the vineyard, not in the tavern.
We have ‘grand cru’ positions in Istria, a country that gives the best wine, but we also invest a lot in technology and our education. That is why our Malvasia won gold medals at Decanter, the world wine award, and the title of the best Croatian wine at the International wine challange in 2016.
We believe that the recipe for good wine is nature, knowledge and technology, and an artistic approach to production. Me and my brothers, Marko and Filip, are continuing the 130-year-old family tradition. ”– Luka Rossi, Rossi Winery and Distillery
Rossi Winery and Distillery
The diligent and hospitable Rossi family of eight consists of father Marino, a keen farmer who has enjoyed fields and vineyards since he was a little boy, mother Ines, a viticulture engineer, and their three sons – Luka, Marko and Filip. Grandpa Federico, a picture of inspiration and experience, still nurtures his vines with love at the age of 87, while grandma Giovanna and aunt Antonia take care of the house and family members.
With the change of the millennium and the opening of the new century, under the motto “it is not quantity but quality that matters”, the Rossi strategically invest in innovative technologies and branding of their products.
They see as their goal the creation of top quality wines and distillates, their positioning at the very top of the premium segment of the domestic and foreign markets, and the postulation of the Rossi family brand as a concept of wine and distillate quality.
Winemaking has always been the primary activity of our family. We have been doing this since 1865, and my brothers and I are the 5th generation.– Luka Rossi
