Vineyard Tour Of Korcula Island
According The Guardian, 29 July 2017,
The Adriatic island of Korcula is home to a unique wine … perfect for sipping after a day visiting its scenic villages and beaches.
Head for the seafront at Lumbarda, one of Korcula ‘s main wine villages, and enjoy the beach have some lunch and then head uphill to the Bire vineyard and sample a glass of dry white Grk. This is the only place you are likely to find it as it’s made from a grape grown nowhere else in the world. Only it’s female side is operational shall we say, so it needs another grape to pollinate it. Usually Plavac Mali, the full-bodied red that’s found around Dalmatia and also goes into Bire’s delicious rosé.
They’ve been making wine in Lumbarda for 2,000 years, so they know what they are doing !From Bire, head to Zure Winery, where Ivan and Marko Batistic have developed a sparkling Grk, something quite different and unexpected but quite delicious, they also have a full bodied red (Rebellion) that blends Plavac mali with four other varieties.
Another experiment has resulted in a Grk version of the Croatian dessert wine prosek, and you can try them all in the vineyard restaurant accompanied by the most delicious local produce.
Head north towards Vela Luka and the wine-growing villages of Cara and Smokvica, Here you will see the valleys covered in vineyards of Posip which is another delicious local white wine but more floral and of course Plavac mali.
