Pošip (pronounced poe-ship) is a grape that grows predominantly in the Dalmatian region of Croatia and is indigenous to the island of Korčula. Smokvica and Čara are the two villages considered to be the cradle of Pošip grape, and also a place where this grape gives the best results. Back in 1967, Pošip was the first white wine in Croatia with a denomination of origin.
This wine has intense aroma and flavor (think of dried apricots and figs) and all Pošip wines are excellent companions to fish and shellfish dishes and a great choice for the warm summer nights.
Thanks to its quality potential, it is only fair that nowadays Pošip stands tall next to so-called “super grapes” such as Chardonnay, Pinots or Rieslings.
Key producers of Pošip wines include: Bibich, Grgić, Jako Vino, Vina-Stina, Korta Katarina, Krajančić, Kunjas, PZ Pošip-Čara, Toreta and Zlatan Otok.
