Own production

Wrinkled faces
Calloused hands
Sweat-bedewed foreheads
and grapes on the vine.
Looking to the skies
with lips forming prayers,
as it was in the beginning…

I. Ursic

Vines have been cultivated on Pelješac for centuries. The people here love their vineyards and the open expanses of the sea. Here, on the sunny southern slopes of Pelješac, in the Postup vineyards, various types of Plavac Mali are grown, from which only top quality wine is produced, with the appellation “POSTUP Branko Roglić”.

This location close to the sea, on the sunny hills reaching 150m above sea level, on fine gravel soil, favours the quality of various kinds of wine with specific bouquets, aromas and characteristics. The vines growing on these hilly locations enjoy sunshine, fresh air, little exposure to disease, winter frosts, spring chills, fog or damp, and these factors influence the quality of the wine. The soil on the south side of Pelješac, in the Postup region, is scant and produces fewer grapes, but these are of far higher quality. They are grown freely, low on the vine, without support, pruned close and gathered by hand. These are the characteristics of Postup wine. The better the harmony of the vines’ position above sea level, their situation, exposure to sunshine and the lie of the land, in this pleasant climate and micro-climate, the better the wine. So the end product is a strong, full, red wine with a luxurious bouquet and aroma, a delicate flavour and a ruby red colour.

This carefully selected wine, chosen to complement the food we serve, contributes to an overall experience of flavour and satisfaction. The strength of a wine should match the food it accompanies – in other words, the wine and the food should complement each other perfectly. This is why we recommend Postup as an accompaniment to many red meats, game dishes, oily fish and piquant cheese dishes. It should be served chilled, at a temperature between 16° and 18°C.

Your very good health!
