Extra information: Dingač is the first Croatian wine whose manner of production and origin were protected under the Geneva Convention of 1961.
The Dingač wine region sits on the southern hills in the middle of the Pelješac peninsula. The grapes grow along very steep slopes of the Adriatic Sea. Because the sun is almost perpendicular to the vineyards and also by the reflection of sunlight in the water, the grapes catch a lot of sunlight. This has a major impact on the quality of the grapes.
This wine has won many awards, including a bronze medal at the IWC in London.
