Even in the Middle Ages, wine making was very developed in the Dubrovnik region. The main feature of this region is the cultivation of numerous grape varieties. High quality wines can be tasted in local restaurants, bars and wineries.
- Wine region Pelješac peninsula.
One of the most famous grape varieties is Plavac Mali, which is grown mainly on the Pelješac Peninsula. While this grape variety has earned its authenticity, it has recently proven a kinship with the California’s Zinfandel, which has put Plavac Mali on the world wine list. Plavac Mali is truly the king of Croatia’s red wines! This local red grape variety produces high-quality, strong, full-bodied, ruby-colored wines. We recommend Plavac Mali from the Pelješac peninsula! About 90% of the land is occupied by vineyards of this grape variety on the Pelješac peninsula. In the Dingać region, on the steep cliffs from the sea, the most fertile Plavac Mali grapes grow. The wine from Dingać place is especially rich and strong. There are other places such as Trstenik, Potomije, Postup which are special and attractive for wine lovers. There are many wine producers on the peninsula. You can spend the whole day tasting the wines of the Pelješac Peninsula.
- Wine region of the island of Korćula
Unlike the rest of Dalmatia, where the cultivation of red grapes predominates, white grape varieties are grown on the island of Korćula. The Pošip is the most famous white grape variety that grows in Korćula. Near the place of Ćara and Smokvica of the island of Korćula, Pošip is grown and the wines are called Pošip Ćara and Pošip Smokvica. Grk, Lumbarda and Rukatats make white wines with the same name. Visit the island of Korćula and enjoy the light, aromatic, sunny white wines of the local Pošip variety!
- Konavle wine region
Konavle is the southernmost part of the Dubrovnik region with rural architecture, unique folklore and also excellent restaurants and taverns. The tradition of wine making here began in the 19th century. In addition to the Malvasia variety, Cabarnet Sauvignon and Merlot varieties are grown here.
