Plavac mali – "Little" in its Name, great in its Pleasure
The story of Plavac mali (mali in Croatian means little), grown on the steep slopes of Dingač and Postup on the south side of Pelješac, would not exist without the hard-working and passionate Pelješac winemakers.
Tradition combined with thePlavac mali variety resulted in the creation of Dingač, the first Croatian wine protected by law (1961) and the Croatian red wine ambassador. Ideal conditions in the Dingač region and the vine growers’ and winemakers’ personal hand-made approach have resulted in an exquisite, full-bodied, harmonious wine of ruby red colour. Wine that was once served in Vienna and Prague courts is now winning awards on the most significant wine fairs around the world.
Its younger brother Postup, made from the same Plavac mali variety, is the second protected Croatian wine (1967). Originating from the rocky slopes of Postup not far away from Dingač, it stands right next to the best red wines of the region. It is of dark ruby colour and full and harmonious taste, with a certain sour note.
