The whole island and Smokvica especially can be commended as having a long tradition in wine growing and wine making since the ancient Greeks time. Numerous evidence can be found to support this. the continuous development of wine production has been happening on Korčula throughout the centuries and the result is a high-quality indigenous wine. Densely planted wine groves, sloped and terraced terrain resulted in most of the works in the vineyards being done by hand in a traditional way, as done by our grandfathers. Smokvica is an unavoidable destination on all the Croatian wine lists, ideal for all those who love the vine.
Smokvica is home to Pošip, one of the most famous Croatian white wines.
