The family business Vitis was founded in 1986. In 1993, the vineyard changed its name to Zlatan Otok (Golden Island in Croatian), with its historic vineyards in the south of the Hvar’s island.
After moving to Croatia on the southern island of Hvar in 1986, the vineyard grew and developed over the years.

A new vineyard, located between 30 and 400 m above sea level and which extends in the Biokovo Massif on an area of 75 hectares (Makarsko Vinogorje). Concerning the vines of the vineyard, we find Plavac Mali in red and Posip in white. The variety Plavac mali is the most popular variety on the Hvar’s island. There is also the Crljenak Katelanski grape, the ancestor of Zinfandel, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The white varieties are all old or indigenous: Pošip, Žilavka, Dubrovačka Malvazija, and also Chardonnay and Žuti Muškat (White Muscat with small grains).
