Traditional and well-known Samobor bermet as a refined aperitif has been associated with Samobor for centuries. It is an indispensable aperitif before the first course of a meal or a drink sipped casually in a good company. Although its ingredients are more or less known, the method of preparation is specific to each family that produces it, so each Samobor bermet varies in bitterness and sweetness. It is produced from red wine and selected ingredients of fruits and herbs.
Since ancient times, the vineyards on the foothills of Zelina have been interspersed by fragrant, pink grapes of the variety of kraljevina, i.e. imbrina, used to produce light, drinkable wine, ideal for refreshment and savouring. It is a light, drinkable and fresh wine perfectly paired with food and its characteristic gentle aroma associates of a summer day, which makes it an ideal summer refreshing drink served with various dishes.
