Saint Hills - Wine of the saints

When visiting the peninsula of Pelješac, this miraculously preserved wonder of Mediterranean nature and culture, you can easily get the feeling that someone placed you into the scene of an old movie. Maybe the clocks were stopped here, somewhere in the times without smartphones and constant rush. It is just what your soul needed.

In these beautiful vineyards, all done by hand, because Nature does not allow machines in Dingač, you slowly get the picture what these wines are all about. They are all about sun, sea stone and really hard work. Yet every drop is worth it. Now that you are in the vineyard, you are put into the “Pelješac mode”, ready to visit the winery.

“Vinaria”, what we call our Saints Hills winery, is an old stone house in a little village of Oskorušno. This house actually used to be a winery, but its owners went on a quest for a better life over the ocean, leaving their winery to sleep for 80 years. We believe it was waiting for us to breathe in a new life for her, so we decided to leave the old stones untouched. They withhold the story of tradition. The modern part of the story is, however, for the guest yet to discover.

Our wines are made of indigenous varieties, with new technology and most recent know-how. The beautiful Nature of this peninsula is what gives a special character to our wine. That is why we respect every aspect of it, in our vineyards, as well as in our cellar. We are consulted by Michel Rolland, one of the world’s most appreciated oenologists. We tend to combine our inspiration with the experience of our teachers and create the best story in the bottle.

This story is also followed by the food we serve in our restaurant. All ingredients are fresh and local, and we grow our own vegetable and spice garden. Dishes tend to follow Dalmatian traditional recipes made with a little twist from our Masterchef. The food he serves brings a new perspective to our wines, and together it performs a feast to guests taste-buds.

“Vinaria” also has two accommodation units and will grow to six. These are luxury rooms made to meet the high expectations of our guests, and to spoil them, fulfilling the experience of this old stone house with everything a modern person needs.

After a visit to “Vinaria” with full batteries and refreshed soul, our guests bring with them beautiful memories, and a reservation to come back very soon…
