Peljesac vineyards

Between Ston and Orebic, on the peninsula, there are only a stone hills. The soil is generally of poor quality, but plenty of sunshine ideal for growing grapes. As a result, Peljesac wine is known all over Croatia, and by many wines from Peljesac are the best wines in Croatia.

Peljesac vineyards

The rich production of wine are brought to the peninsula by the Greeks and perfected by the ancient Romans. Today you will find on the peninsula many vineyards mixed with olive trees, and most of them are located in the southeastern part. The most famous wine is Dingac. Other famous wines from this region are red wines Postup and Plavac. Recent DNA analysis of vines showed that the famous Californian sort Zinfandel is same (or nearly the same) as Plavac.

Excursions in the vineyards on the Peljesac peninsula

Most wine production on the peninsula takes place in small wineries, and visits to wine cellars are very informal and pleasant experience. Before going on a trip, you'll definitely want to get a map of the wine cellars in the Ston tourist office. However, and without tickets is not difficult to find wine cellars on the peninsula because only one main road is leading through the Peljesac peninsula. Best time for visits is during working hours between 9 and 12 am, and 14 and 18h, from Monday to Saturday. Outside working hours you'll probably need to wait for someone to come to the basement. Even if the owners of the cellar do not know English, they will usually find someone who will present their products.

These are some of the most famous vineyards, starting from the southeast:

Winery Vukas

Family Vukas is engaged in the wine business for over 100 years and produces about 1000 liters of wine per year. The basement is small, and the price starts from 4 euros.

Winery Grgic

Miljenko Grgic is known for its California plantations 'Grgich Hills', and here applies almost the same techniques of vine cultivation.

"Plavac Mali" and "Posip" are more expensive than other Peljesac wines and can be found on the wine lists of the most prestigious Croatian restaurants. The winery is open every day from 10-17.

This basement with a very cozy atmosphere is built on the model of the French cellars and can store up to 4500 liters of wine. Dingac, Postup, Plavac, Rukatac and Chardonnay are excellent wines that are kept here, and also here you can buy olive oil.
