Introduced to the area by the Greeks over two thousand years ago, the high quality of the wine produced in the vineyards of the Pelješac Peninsula was documented by the Greek writer, Athenians. And the same rings true today.
Proud of their heritage and rich culture, vigerons welcome you with open arms and enthusiastic descriptions of all that they have to offer. Over 44 of the 700 wines produced in Croatia come from this area with Dingac and Postup being rated as some of the top quality red wines from the Potmje region of the Peljesac.
The fresh air and fine wine also inspire a passion for good food. Set in traditional homes or in mountain villages with dramatic views you will sample
