This winery produces both white and red wines, but it is most famous for its Plavac Mali (a type of red wine) and Pošip (a type of white wine). The Plavac Mali grape is grown on its sunny slopes, giving the wine a unique character that makes it very popular among locals and tourists alike.

Korta Katarina Winery

Korta Katarina is one of Croatia's most celebrated wineries located near Orebic on the Pelješac Peninsula and produces an array of award-winning wines from carefully selected local grape varieties such as Plavac Mali, Pošip, Babić and Maraština grapes grown on their certified biodynamic vineyards overlooking Korcula Island.

The winery has become well-known for its award-winning red wines made from Plavac Mali grapes, an indigenous varietal known as "The King of Croatian Grapes". The Plavac Mali variety is known for its robust flavour and intense aroma, making it a perfect accompaniment to hearty dishes such as grilled meats and savoury pasta.

The winery has become a leader in environmental consciousness within Dubrovnik's vibrant wine industry by introducing practices that reduce its carbon footprint while preserving local ecosystems.

Visitors can book private tours with owner Zoran Bukovica who will lead you through his estate while sharing stories about generations-old traditions used for producing Croatian wines!

This special drink has become popular throughout Dubrovnik as well as other parts of Europe due to its smooth taste and attractive aroma.

The winemaking at Bura Winery is a true art form as it combines traditional wine-making techniques with contemporary innovations to produce some truly remarkable results. An important part of their process is vinification – the process of transforming grapes into wine by using natural yeast that has been harvested from local shrubs and trees. This technique adds an extra layer of complexity to their wines that can be appreciated by even the most seasoned connoisseur.
