Royal vineyards as the film destination

Punta Skala, 28.08.2014

Beautiful, unique ambience of the Royal vineyards, situated on one of the best locations of vineyards in the Northern Dalmatia, last night was transformed into a theatre stage under the stars.

Avvantura film festival Zadar, on the picturesque slopes above Punta Skala, with a view overlooking Zadar, the islands of the Zadar archipelago and Velebit, along with the partner, in other words with the LUX Prize which is sponsored by the European Parliament, and with the hospitality of the Royal Vineyards, prepared the event for memory.

The location was not chosen randomly. In 1066 the Croatian King Petar Krešimir IV donated the vineyards to the Benedictine monastery of St.Mary in Zadar, which was led by its sister, a nun Čika. She, in turn, bought the first vineyards that still give a distinctive and smooth wines like Pošip, Plavca mali and Crljenak.

Tasting Dalmatian specialties and first class wines, the international guests met also a fraction of Croatian history. In cooperation with HRT, one of the episodes of the series "Croatian kings" was shown in the reeds of the vineyard (HTV).
