THE STORY OF ZIVELI

We’re not saying it’s magical, but sometimes, while sipping a Ziveli wine, you can feel the salty wind off the Adriatic Sea.

Ziveli Winery was created by the Nale family. We are proud to bring the spirit of Croatian wine to the San Joaquin Valley. Our roots are in the Dalmatian region, directly across the Adriatic Sea from Italy. We share the same Mediterranean climate and zest for life, so it’s no surprise that we love growing grapes and making incredible wine.

We have grown grapes for decades near Fresno, California. After a trip to the old country and the eye-opening experience of tasting our ancestors’ wines, our son Cole was the first to suggest we take up the family mantle and start crushing grapes ourselves. In that spirit, Ziveli was born.
