Participate in the vintage and production of top-quality red wine

Wine that we produce in our basements is called Plavac mali (barrique). This is a top-quality red wine, originating from the vineyards of Hvar, which represents its farming area, the soil from which it drew the strength and optimal amount of sun that fed it. We obtain this wine by careful processing, after which the wine matures in oak barrels (barrique), without adding water and improving taste, which gives the wine a very refined bouquet and boosts the strong flavour of this type. The colour is dark ruby-red, and the bouquet contains harmony of Plavac Mali’s aroma and burnt oak. The taste is ripe, full, smooth and refined. Soil configuration on Dalmatian islands provides exceptional quality for this type, including it in the list of the best red wines.

We harvest grapes in September, when all guests are invited to join us in this joyful event. Of course, you can also participate in the production of wine, and as a souvenir, you can take home the wine produced by your hand.

Dalmatian wines
Wine is one of the most popular alcoholic beverages, and is considered one of the most important ingredients of Mediterranean cuisine, as well as of many European cuisines and cultures. There are various types of wine, which reflect diversity of climate and soil on which are grown different grapevine varieties. Wines usually differ by colour: white, pink (rosé) and red, and the colour is determined by the grape colour and wine production process.

Right here in Dalmatia, where the sun heats the rocks and where the limestone areas dominate the landscape, grapevines found their homeland. Discover the benefits of Dalmatian wines, which have been produced for centuries by hardworking Dalmatian winemakers, and taste some of the most famous Dalmatian wines: Plavac Mali, Dingač, Postup, Babić, Pošip, Debit, Malvasia, Žlahtina or Prosecco, a remarkable sweet dessert wine.

It is the most respected indigenous Croatian type of wine, which is the reason why it’s also called "the king of red wines". Certainly there isn’t a wine connoisseur from anywhere in the world that hasn’t tasted or at least heard something about Plavac Mali. The wine has dark, ruby colour with a dark blue reflection. It has a well-developed aroma and rich bouquet of plums and cherries, with dried figs, vanilla, clove and black tea flavour. It has a specific velvety taste, which is characterized by acerbity and elegance. The best top-quality Plavac Mali is grown on the south side of the island Hvar, on peninsula Pelješac, and on some parts of islands Brač and Vis.
Malvasia is the common name for the entire group of varieties, and includes mainly white wine, i.e. grapes that have been grown in the vineyards of the Mediterranean for ages. It yields less, and the wine made of it is straw-yellow in colour with greenish reflections, has strong fragrance with apricot, almond and musk aromas and has harmonious, fluent and constant flavour. It is served with fish, shellfish, squid and other light regional meals, and at a temperature of 8-10° C. The Croatian national list of recognized cultivars of grapevine includes and recommends two Malvasia types: Istrian Malvasia and Dubrovnik Malvasia.
Debit is a quality, dry white wine made from the indigenous grape variety of the same name that ripens late. It is characterized by straw-yellow colour, freshness and slightly sour and full flavour, which is respected by customers from the area where this wine is produced. This grape variety is classified among the cultivars recommended in all Dalmatian sub-regions. One should drink this wine well chilled (8-10° C), and is recommended with seafood, fine cheese or apple desserts.
Pošip is the first Croatian white wine with protected geographic origin, protected in 1967. It is made out of white grape variety of the same name, which is mostly grown in the south of Korčula, the island that can boast about the tradition of growing white varieties since the time of ancient Greeks (4th century BC). It thrives best in hidden locations of Čara and Smokvica, where it always provides top quality, and where closely planted vineyards and leaning and terraced fields still force producers to do the majority of work manually, in a traditional way.
Babić is an authentic Dalmatian type of red wine. The wine has blue-red colour, and is full and smooth, with pronounced originality. Its soft and warm taste goes perfectly with grilled oily fish, "pašticada" and gnocchi, venison, barbecued lamb or lamb baked under bell (Croatian traditional method), with piquant goat cheese and genuine Dalmatian prosciutto. Babić is grown solely in the vineyards of Primošten, which cannot fail to entice admiration of people passing the Adriatic Highway. These locations represent the best evidence of human care, effort and willingness to convert "bare rock" into a tight, but noble wine-growing soil. On the wall of one room in the UN building in Bern, Switzerland, there is even a huge Gattin’s photo of Primošten vineyards, as a symbol of (not only Dalmatian) men’s struggle for survival. Babić grapes produced in other wine regions, where the cultivation is temporarily allowed, contribute to the quality of other red wines.
Postup has always been one of the most appreciated Croatian wines on the market. After the wine law had been enacted, Postup became the second (right after Dingač) protected premium wine in Croatia (1967). It is produced only out of grapevine variety Plavac Mali grown on the location Postup on Pelješac, and only when grapes become over-mature, which is resulted in sugar increase and in formation of number of other ingredients that are important for quality of the future wine. This wine is characterized by a high content of ethanol (often more than 14% ABV) and dry extract. Its colour is purple and burgundy with blue reflections and it has a pleasant and unique aroma.
Dingač is a top-quality dry red wine of controlled origin, from limited areas of peninsula Pelješac. In 1961 it was protected by the Geneva Convention and so became the first Croatian wine protected by law. It is made of indigenous variety Plavac Mali from Dingač location, which is situated on the southern slopes of peninsula Pelješac. It has a deep ruby-red colour and nicely emphasised fullness of flavour with seductive aromas of spices.
