The island of Krk is known for its unique quality dry white wine Žlahtina. Vrbnička Žlahtina is cultivated on the Vrbničko Polje plain, which spreads over 211 ha. It is considered an indigenous wine of Krk vineyards and is produced from the indigenous variety Žlahtina Bijela. Its name derives from the Slavic adjective žlahten which means noble. Try this palatable wine and enjoy its light refreshing taste, characterised by its discreet varietal aroma enriched with floral notes of sorb fruit, immortelle and apple.
Nada Restaurant, located on the famous cliff above the sea in Vrbnik, has a tradition dating from 1974 and is today one of the most recognisable must-visit places of the Krk culinary scene. Fish and other first-class specialities alongside wines from the restaurant’s own wine cellar and the beautiful view of the Crikvenica-Vinodol Riviera, are the best recommendations for wine lovers and gourmets.
