Around 5 million euros has been invested in the hotel which will have its official opening on Thursday 25 August 2016. The hotel is the first ‘wine themed’ hotel in the country. It has 5 connecting buildings representing the 5 wine regions in Croatia with the rooms named after various indigenous grapes.

The hotel is built on the foundations of the Toljanić family house, a family renowned for their winemaking in the area, in an idyllic part of Vrbnik near the sea.
