Winemaking on Pelješac dates back to the 13th century. The peninsula’s most famous wines today are Postup and Dingač, versions of the famed Plavac Mali. Both Postup and Dingač are made at Plavac Mali’s ancient place of origin, Dalmatia, and received protected designations of origin in the 1960s. Local producers have a tradition relating to Postup: none will claim their Postup to be the best. Dingač is an appellation for the wine known locally as the ‘three suns wine’ because it basks in the sun three times: first directly, then through rock reflections, then through sea reflections. Try both at Radović, Korta Katarina or Arambašić wineries, all located in Orebić.
Orebić sits on the southern coast of Croatia’s pretty Pelješac peninsula. It’s known as ‘the town of sailors and captains’, having thrived on the maritime industry throughout the centuries. ‘An old captain once said that the Orebić coastline is the most beautiful in the world. And you trust captains on Pelješac’ is how the local saying goes.
Today, Orebić is one of the best towns to visit on the Dalmatian coast – read on to discover why, with our expert guide of things to do in the town.
