Despite its name, it has nothing to do with Italian Prosecco, which is a sparkling wine. There are no similarities between the products, either with regard to the production method, style or the grapes used, nor is there any relationship between the origin of the two names.
Nevertheless, after Croatia's accession to the EU, it was decided that the wine should no longer be called Prošek because the name reminds too much of Prosecco. Therefore, the name was changed to Jakov. Obviously, it is just Prošek as everyone knows it in Croatia.

Prošek can be compared to the Italian dessert wine Vino Santo (holy wine). These are straw wines, as they are often produced by drying the freshly harvested grapes on reed mats.

This is the same production method in Croatia. Several grapes are allowed for the production of Prošek such as the white Bogdanuša, Marastina, or Vugava (all native Croatian white grapes) and even the blue Plavac Mali. Jakov is made from three white native grapes Debit, Maraština, Trbljan.

Prošek is a sweet dessert wine, traditionally from Dalmatia. Good quality Prošek is usually much more expensive than other wines due to the average consumption of seven times more grapes to make the same amount of wine.
