Celebrate Days of Pošip on Korčula – First Indigenous Croatian White Wine Grape

Days of Pošip set to start

The whole island of Korčula, especially the settlements of Smokvica and Čara, boasts a tradition of viticulture and winemaking dating back to the time of the ancient Greeks.

There is lots of evidence, including a two and a half thousand-year-old presser next to an old winery, and the remains of old Greek summerhouses, in front of which there are unspoiled areas of grape vines.

This year the 50th anniversary of the famous Pošip grape variety being declared the first autochthonous Croatian white wine with the controlled geography origin (1967), which is primarily grown in the Dalmatian region on the island of Korčula, in Čara and Smokvica, is being celebrated.

On the closing night, on 6 August 2017, at Wine Night you can enjoy the company of winemakers, their wines and the sounds of Klapa Puntamika.
