The legend of Veli Joža has come to life. The famous giant is with us again, and you can enjoy his company whenever you want. We understand - do you want to know how this is possible? So listen to our story ...

Once upon a time, a long time ago, when elves and giants, walked through Istria, naughty, little people, says the story, left one giant in each city to serve them, after they poisoned the others. Veli Jože found himself in Motovun, and the little people despised and belittled him, forcing him to the most difficult jobs. And when these little people would do him any harm, the mighty Veli Jože shook the Motovun bell tower indignantly. Though large and strong, of a heroic and noble heart, he could do nothing but shake that bell tower. Until the moment they sent him to Venice, when on the way there he met the galleon Ilija on a ship. He learned from him what freedom was, so after the shipwreck, in which Ilija disappeared, Veli Jože returned to Istria and called on other giants for rebellion and liberation from slavery. And he succeeded, the rebellion began, but soon the dwarves managed to seduce the giants, sweeping them with gold and wine. In the end, they all returned as servants to their cities, and only Veli Jože remained somewhere in the mountain forests, waiting for his moment for the much dreamed and desired freedom.

So how many times, walking through the picturesque Istrian landscape, did you want to see the silhouette of Veli Jože, at least for a moment, knowing that it will never happen, that the legend has remained in the past.

But ... we have to tell you one big secret. The legend of Veli Jože lives on again. The giant's hands no longer shake the Motovun bell tower, but Veli Jože has a new life. You can meet and experience it in Narduči near Vižinada, where it reincarnated as Il Grande, a wine of giant strength, which combined a powerful coupage of Teran, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Il Grande is now forever immortalized on the labels of our bottles, in every drop of a unique wine bouquet containing elements of alcoholic cherries, blueberries, balsamic shades, deep skin and tobacco tones and high notes of fresh, dark summer fruit. At the finish of each sip of this special wine you will feel the aroma of dark chocolate, and Il Grande with its thick, oily and firm structure, full of ripe tannins, gives the feeling as if you were truly embraced by some giant power of nature, in all its strength and power. legends spun. And that's why we invite you - enter the legend. In the company of the greatest.
