The Marčeta family winery has been carrying on the tradition of agriculture for over a hundred years, since as far back as 1923, when Josip Marčeta moved from Barbanština to Valbandon. This relocation brought him much better soil for growing various agricultural crops, including grapevines.

The more recent history begins in the early 1990s when the estate was taken over by Dario Marčeta, who elevated it to a high level. Already in 1996, he won the first gold medal for his Istrian Malvasia at Vinistra. Today, production has been raised to an even higher level, with Dario being assisted in the business by his successful sons Ivan and Luka. The Marčeta family now cultivates six hectares of their own vineyards on deep red soil in Valbandon, and they also purchase some grapes from trusted cooperatives.

Their leading grape varieties are Istrian Malvasia and Teran, followed by Merlot, Refošk, and Cabernet Sauvignon. They are present in the market with eight wine labels as well as about ten labels of spirits, liqueurs, and olive oil. Their modernly equipped cellar with a tasting room is located in Valbandon, and Marčeta winery products are available in numerous wine bars and restaurants throughout Istria.
