There are two distinct wine-producing regions in Croatia. The continental region in the north-east of the country (Plješivica, Prigorje, Varaždin, Međimurje, Pokuplje en Moslavina) and north-west (Slavonia and Dunav), produces rich fruity white wines, similar in style to the neighbouring areas of Slovenia, Austria and Hungary.
The second wine regions is the coastal region. On the north coast, Istrian wines are similar to those produced in neighbouring Italy, while further south (Dalmatia) production is more towards big Mediterranean-style reds.
On the islands and the Dalmatian coast, local grape varietals, microclimates and the rather harsh nature of the vineyards leads to some highly individual wines, and some of Croatia's best known.
