Winemaking of Boškinac family started in the 50s and the Boškinac winery was built in 2002. Vineyard of 6,5 ha was planted in 2000 and is located only few hundred meters away from the winery. Boris Šuljić, owner of the winery, wanted to cherish authenticity of the island of Pag, so he held on to autochthonous white grape variety Gegic. This variety was on the verge of extinction, and old vines could only be found on the south side of Pag in Povaljina. The owner used these vines and planted a modern vineyard, therefore saved this variety from extinction. He also planted two red varieties Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, and two white ones Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. Boškinac winery makes wines exclusively of grapes from their own vineyard and their wines have been rewarded on many local as well as international manifestations.
