The Peljesac peninsula has been known since its ancient times for its excellent wines. Indulge yourself with some of the best wines of the region as well as learn about its production
Facing the blue, blue Adriatic Sea, the sun-drenched limestone karst slopes of the Pelješac peninsula are a sight to see: tumble-down white stones and jagged outcrops lie interspersed with olive trees, drought-stricken Mediterranean scrub brush (rosemary, thyme, oregano, curry-plant) and perilously-perched and un-trellised vineyards.
Welcome to Dingač, the most prestigious of all Croatia’s wine regions, where Croatia’s most revered – and eponymously-named – wine is made from Plavac Mali, Croatia’s most-cultivated red grape variety.
Dingač is a small, dangerously steep area of vineyards interspersed on the south-facing slopes of Pelješac,where some of the most highly regarded Dingač wines are made by small, family-owned wineries (e.g. Bura; Miličić).
In the old days, local vineyard workers would utilize horses and donkeys to tend the vineyards on the Dingač slopes, as well as to cart the grapes to Potomje, the town on the opposite side of the mountain where the Vinarija Dingač stands today.
Spend a day exploring the beautiful green scenery and blue bays of the Peljesac peninsula where you can enjoy the extraordinary taste of Dalmatian wine and cuisine.
