Royal Dingač - Matuško

Introduced by the Greeks and then advanced by the Romans, wine production has a long history in Peljesac. Now you'll find acres of vineyards interspersed by olive trees throughout the Peljesac peninsula but concentrated in the southeast. The most celebrated wine is Dingac (pronounced Ding-atz) produced around Potomje. Recent DNA tests have revealed that California's famed Zinfandel grape is the same (or closely related to) Plavac Mali.

A combination of wine and tourism is offered by many taverns and wine cellars, but of them stands out with quality, knowledge and perseverance. Starting as a small wine-tasting cellar seldom visited by tourist, through presentation at domestic and foreign wine and tourist fairs, wine cellar MATUŠKO developed into one of the most well known and largest Croatian wine-tasting destinations over the last couple of years.
