167 years of family owned wine making

The Franc Arman Winery, in Istria in northwest Croatia, was established in 1850.  Still a family owned business, led by Franc and Oliver Arman, the winery spans 20 acres, and produces indigenous Malvezija and Teran wines, along with international varietals, such as Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, and Merlot.

Franc Arman’s white wines are stored in stainless steel tanks, and the red wines are stored in oak barrels in a newly renovated wine cellar 16 feet underground.   

Franc Arman’s wines are produced with minimal sulfites, earning the wines ecological certification. Additionally, the wines have won numerous awards in Croatia and internationally.

To allow the wines to breathe, Franc Arman wines are recommended to be opened at least one hour before drinking. 

Franc Arman wines represent the good living of Istria where there is nothing better than having a good meal with friends, accompanied by great wines. 

Franc Arman wines are represented by Blue Ice, Minneapolis, an importer of Croatian wines.
