Končeto's Family

The family winery Pilato is located in the village of Lašići, near Vižinada. The family has been involved in agriculture for generations, and the first vineyard was planted by Ivan Pilato in 1934. Ivan's son Končeto expanded the vineyards in the 1960s and laid the foundations for what is now one of the most significant Istrian wineries.

In the 1990s, Končeto's son Eliđo took over the winery, diversified the assortment, and won a gold medal for his wine at the first Vinistra in 1994. Today, Eliđo's children Karin, Sanjin, and Sanja are gradually taking over the winery, so there is no need to worry about the future. The Pilato winery currently cultivates about twenty hectares of vineyards, and they are present in the market with around ten wine labels, predominantly white wines.

They produce Istrian Malvasia in both fresh and aged variations, while international varieties such as Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, and Sauvignon Blanc are only in fresh variants. For red wines, they produce Teran, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon, along with Grand Cuvee, a blend of these three varieties. The lineup is completed with the sparkling wine Principe, the elegant rosé Terosa, and two labels of dessert wines based on White Muscat, fresh, and Serafin from dried grapes."
