So, travel the peninsula in quest of amazing wines for a unique holiday experience.
Winemaking tradition of Pelješac
It takes the right location, the right soil and the right number of sun rays. It’s Pelješac where Plavac Mali, the native grape variety, has found its home. The centuries-old winegrowing tradition is best represented by its two famous red wines - the harmonious and full-bodied Dingač and balanced Postup with a pleasant aroma. Both are made of Plavac Mali and have been protected by law for more than 50 years.
Wine and dine with heavenly flavours of Pelješac
A wine connoisseur and a gourmet or just a person who likes to treat the palate to excellent enogastronomic experiences, don’t miss the chance to complement divine Dalmatian delicacies with exceptional red wines! Plavac Mali goes marvelously with squid dishes and octopus a la peka, while Dingač beautifully matches shrimp or lobster buzara and Postup wonderfully completes a whitefish dish or brodet fish stew. All three also perfectly crown the famous oysters of Ston as well as meat dishes, especially game.
