Dalmatia is known for its mussels, oysters, and fish sourced directly from the waters, and is a stunning discovery that many tourists have not yet explored, reports forbes.com.
Hidden within the town of Drače, located between Ston and Orebić, is the country’s first underwater winery. Edivo Vina winery was created beneath the sea where visitors can join divers on a tour of the submerged jugs which house the wine, along with a sunken ship at the bottom of Mali Ston Bay. There is, of course, an above ground winery for those who are not scuba inclined.
Nearly 5,000 bottles of wine are aged above-ground for three months and then stored in amphorae, a clay jug with two handles and a narrow neck, below the water for one to two years. With natural sea cooling, the winery discovered it was ideal conditions for the wine storage.
Wine lovers can enjoy a varied selection of wines like Navis Mysterium Amphora, Navis Mysterium Bottle, Dingač Edivo, Plavac Edivo Bottle, and Q Edivo Bottle.
