About Stina

About Stina

The island of Brač is unique and famous for its white stone (Stina), but also for numerous artists who lived and created on the island. Many famous Croatian poets, authors, sculptors and painters were born on Brač. Brač stone has always been a source of inspiration due to its beauty, but it is also a symbol of hardship when it comes to viticulture and viniculture. This is why we chose the name STINA for our wine. In the Dalmatian dialect, this word means stone, the strongest symbol of the island of Brač.

The label was inspired by the world-famous white Brač stone, which has inspired sculptors, painters, poets and authors for centuries. The motto of the winery is: STINA –Inspiration from stone).

STINA is an inspiration. STINA awakens the creative spark that chisels a sculpture from a block of white Brač stone, paints a painting on an empty canvas, writes poetry on a clean piece of paper. Stina is a field full of stones where creating a wine with luxurious flavour is an art. Stina is Brač and Brač is Stina. STINA inspires you to leave your mark, write a poem, leave a message or paint with a drop of red wine.
