The Peljesac Peninsula, after Istria, is the largest peninsula on the Adriatic coast, stretching from Ston Prevlaka to Loviste in the length of 40 nautical miles. It contains a handful of historical, cultural and natural attractions.
The first Pošip vines grew in the wild according to legend and were discovered
by chance. Researchers later determined that Pošip is probably a cross between
two other varieties from Korčula – Bratovina and Blatska zlatarica.
Many claim it is the most widespread and significant variety in Dalmatia. After Welschriesling and Malvasia, it is the third most cultivated variety in Croatia. Its name derives from the appearance of the grapes that are small (mali) and blue in colour (plavac).
