Discover a tradition of wine making excellence at Pelješac Peninsula, the beautiful gem of southern Croatia!
Croatia’s second longest peninsula Peljesac – famous for its red wine Dingac and Postup, delicious oysters and mussels growing in the brackish waters of Mali Ston bay, Ston city walls and its salt pans lay less than an hour drive from the city of Dubrovnik.
Pelješac is a synonym for the highest quality shellfish. Oysters and mussels from the Mali Ston bay are appreciated around the world, then there is the richness of fish from two seas: small (shallow and warm) and large (spacious and deep), and home made products from family-owned agro tourism – all lead you to a unique gastronomical world.
And natural beauty – beautiful beaches, hidden covers, a clean sea, and pristine nature, the aroma of medicinal plants will lead you to a region that is rarely found today. The slopes of the vineyards, the most spectacular of which are at Dingač, provide a unique view, as do the other scenic overlooks, such as the one at the Franciscan monastery Our lady in Orebić on St. Ilya hill.
Culture and civilization have resided on Pelješac for a long time. Life has thrived here since the Stone Age and antiquity. This important corner of the Mediterranean has lived through the centuries under the influence of many cultures that have left their marks. Here you will find a salt pan from the second century B.C. – the longest in Europe – and harmonious small towns and settlements with a multitude of beautiful medieval churches and monasteries. The Maritime Museum testifies to the celebrated seafaring tradition of Pelješac.
