Founded in 1995 by owners Milan and Victoria Matulich, Dobra Zemlja Winery is the home of “Big Amador Reds, No Lightweights”.
Meaning 'good earth' in Croatian, Dobra Zemlja (Doh-bra Zem-ya) produces hearty, unfiltered and unfined wines that are made using the native yeast. It is all about letting the grape make the wine.
