Your search for perfection ends here - welcome to the first and oldest wine shop (wine cellar) in Croatia !Not far from the Zagreb cathedral in the almost 2 centuires old vaulted wine cellar at Kaptol 19, since 1989, began the story of the new and modern Croatian wine scene.This is a place for all wine lovers who are looking for knowledge and new wine experience, who want to learn more and become familiar with domestic and international wine varieties in a special environment.And as far as the internet today was the dominant medium we know very well that you can transmit it through a fraction of the experience and the experience - because the internet you can not convey the smells , we can not bring you closer to the taste , we can not talk to you with a glass of fine wine .Therefore we invite you to visit us and make sure that you on the shelves of our wine cellar expects The best selection of Coatian wines, Hundreds of wines from around the world, Extra virgin olive oil, Istrian truffles and savory and sweet desserts .And then, when you thought you've seen everything, we will share our greatest pride - archival collection of wines from Kutjevo and Belje wineries and the oldest bottle of Croatian wine - White Burgundy from the 1947th year.

I loved this place. We had a very own Sommelier and owner of this winery. He gave us generous portions to "taste". Wine was Excellent.

Promoted as a wine cellar of some significance, in our view it was in reality just another wine retailer with some history attached and an attractive below ground store. The staff are reasonably friendly and knowledgeable, but the wines (other than Croatian) are quite limited
