Sparkling wine Valomet podmorski

After processing and bottling in the cellars of PZ Vrbnik, the sparkling wine is submerged in the sea at a depth of 32 metres, where at a constant temperature, in darkness and silence, it ferments and ages in a secret location of the north-eastern part of the island of Krk

Valomet is a native term for a rock exposed to the constant pounding of the sea’s waves

This magical drink in a bottle decorated by the underwater flora and fauna is irresistible for drinking, as well as a gift for a person dear to your heart

Each bottle is a priceless curio
