Stari is our flagship wine in our expansive range of fortifieds. My family’s ownership of Olive Farm dates back to 1933, when Ivan Yurisich – My Stari Dide` (Old Grandfather in Croatian, pronounced Dida) purchased the property after immigrating from Korcula, Croatia. Stari Dide’s humble beginnings started by making fortified wines, with the knowledge and wines being passed down through the 4 Generations of Yurisich Winemakers. This wine is a culmination of 4 Generations of fortified winemaking experience, decades of barrel ageing, patience and careful blending. It is an honour to blend such a wonderful part of my family’s history of which I hope you will enjoy.
There aren't too many 4 generation winery’s blending fortifieds like this, so this one is definitely worth a taste!
