Vrbnička žlahtina is a very good quality dry white wine produced from an indigenous variety, the white žlahtina.

This wine is pale yellow or straw yellow and has a mild bouquet and a pleasant characteristic taste. It is a perfect, light summer wine!
The agricultural community of Vrbnik carried out an experiment by putting sparkling wine bottles into steel-barred chests in the sea, at a depth of around 30 m, where the temperature of 12 Celsius degrees is constant at that depth which is ideal for sparkling wine fermentation. The bottles are pulled out by divers and boats. This is how they make sparkling wine – Valomet!
