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.
To celebrate the occasion Days of Pošip will be held from 29 July – 6 August 2017.
During the winery open days in Čara and Smokvica you can try Pošip between 29 July – 5 August 2017 every day from 7 pm – 9 pm.
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.
