Home to the "Pearl of the Adriatic", Dubrovnik, this region is blessed with a dramatic and seemingly endless coastline, a truly Mediterranean climate, and a landscape where the sparkling sea embraces a wealth of stunning islands, that for many years have been the playground of Europe's elite.  Welcome to idyllic Dalmatia! 

A journey through Dalmatian wine country has all the ingredients to leave you breathless.  With many of the vineyards located precariously on the cliff edges, sloping aggressively down to the sea, it is difficult to comprehend how the vines were first planted here, let alone the labour intensive process to tend for them and harvest the fruits of the earth.  Be prepared for historic towns, extraordinary views, hidden coves rich with local oysters, and fabulous seafood around every bend of the spectacular coastal road - all washed down of course by an incredible selection of indigenous wine varieties.

Similar to its norther neighbour, Istria, grapes were introduced to Dalmatia by the Greeks over 2,500 years ago.  The steep cliffs, poor soils, hot summers and geographic proximity of the Dinaric Alps, created a micro-climate unsuitable for most agriculture, flora and fauna - but most importantly, extremely suitable for olives and for vines.   The result: red wines that are full bodied and ripe, and whites that are mineral and complex.  We invite you to experience this wine lovers paradise as you explore the unique flavours of the region's flagship varietals - Plavac Mali and Pošip - for yourself.
