In 1916, in New Zealand, the winemaker Joseph Babich created his first wine, which marked the beginning of Babich Wines . In 1910, as a fourteen-year-old boy, he left Dalmatia (part of modern Croatia) to join his brothers working in the north of New Zealand. Once in the valley of Henderson in 1919, he and his wife, Mara, broke a vineyard on an empty plot of 24 hectares. During the Second World War, winemaking became the main business of the family. In the 50s their first son, Peter Babich, joined the team, and in the 1960s became a winemaker and Joe Babić, Jr.. Together, the brothers were able to turn a small farm into a world-class wine producer.
Today Babich Wines , located in the Henderson Valley in Western Oakland, is one of New Zealand's largest family wine companies. Its success is explained by the words of Joe Babić: "We find excellent sites for vineyards in different regions and plant them with those grape varieties that perfectly blend in with earth and climate .
