This variety is specific as it is only grown vineyards in Krk and more precisely in the fields of Vrbnik Apart from the community of Vrbnik. Today, Vrbnik and Zlahtina are synonymous as this is the only place they are cultivated. In 2006, the agricultural community of Vrbnik carried out an experiment by putting sparkling wine bottles (Valomet) into steel-barred chests in the sea, at a depth of 30 metres. In fact, at that depth a temperature of 12 Celsius degrees is constant which is ideal for sparkling wine fermentation. The ideal location is to be found around half a mile from the coast of Vrbnik.

The results exceeded expectations; the sparkling wine from the sea was much better than that created in the cellar.
