Wine and olive oil have marked the lives of the people of Pelješac and left a deep mark in the tradition of the peninsula. The hard-working hands of the Pelješac farmers have worked the land for centuries and created fertile vineyards in the most inaccessible terrains, providing top quality wines. One of them is Postup, a well-known Croatian wine-making locality, placed at the entrance of Orebić. At the foot of Postup is the village of Mokalo, home to the Boutique winery Mikulić. It is decorated in the style of traditional Dalmatian taverns, where the greatest Dalmatian treasures have been carefully kept for generations.
Here you will enjoy the glass of the finest Postup wine, named „Don Josip“, signed by the Mikulić family. In addition to tasting wonderful Dalmatian products, it is possible to buy wine and olive oil from family-owned vineyards and olive groves.
Wine Don Josip
Don Josip, the supreme wine of the Boutique winery Mikulić, is a reflection of love for the Dalmatian karst and the crystal blue sea. In it, you will feel the all the power and the strength of a small, autochthonous wine variety, carefully nurtured on Postup, one of the most famous Croatian vineyard regions. There, on the southern side of Pelješac, the flourishing vineyards steeply descend to the sea, creating the most breathtaking landscapes. The perfect conditions for building up the sugar content in the grapes are created due to the Sun’s reflection from the sea surface and from the stone.
The secret of winemaking is deeply rooted in the family tradition and is passed on from generation to generation, from grandfather Josip – after whom the wine was named, to grandson Antonio, who gave the wine a personal, modern touch.
Don Josip will seduce you with its dark ruby color and scents of dark fruits. Warm and thick, with accentuated tannins typical of Pelješac Plavac, it combines perfectly with semi-hard cheeses, dark fish and red meat. This is a wine for all occasions, speaks all the world’s languages, and it is a priceless experience to enjoy a glass on the seafront in Orebić, in the „Old Captain“ Restaurant of Boutique Hotel Adriatic. Supreme quality wine and a unique view of the sea with a glass of Postup, the pride of only the best winemakers of Pelješac!
