As if Croatia already isn’t the most popular Eastern Europe destination already!
Why is everything and anything underwater so much cooler?
As if Croatia already isn’t the most popular Eastern Europe destination of the moment, it has now opened the country’s first underwater winery to make it even more enticing for folks dreaming of jetsetting.
Situated on the Pelješac peninsula, Edivo Vina, will take you diving to check out the underwater winery. On the way, you’ll see the wine-making process and swim by a deserted ship at the bottom of Mali Ston Bay. Just to be clear, the wine-aging process occurs on land for three months. Then for 1-2 years, it’s kept in storage in amphorae (a type of container of a characteristic shape and size, descending from at least as early as the Neolithic Period.)
Amphorae were used in vast numbers for the transport and storage of various products, both liquid and dry, but mostly for wine. They are most often ceramic, but examples in metals and other materials have been found. The historic storage process for the wine provides a unique pinewood aroma to the whiff and taste. At Edivo Vina, they’re packaged in cages and locked to ensure that other divers do not swim off while stealing bottles of wine.
Edivo Vina’s owners said:
The sea provides natural cooling in ideal conditions and the perfect silence underwater improves the quality.
Who doesn’t love a little adventure while wine-tasting? We cannot wait to check out this place!
