Peljesac wine “Plavac mali” premium quality on all our tours:

Did you know that you are coming to the country of Zinfandel birthplace ?

Plavac mali is indigenous and dominant red grape in Dalmatia (Croatian coast of Adriatic Sea). Many years ago there was another grape in Dalmatia which was called Crljenak. Crljenak wasn’t very heat resistant while variety Dobričić (the “little good one”) isn’t very mold resistant. Crossing the two variety’s Crljenak with variety Dobričić we get variety Plavac Mali. Plavac Mali grew far better on both counts and become dominant grape. Scientist Dr. Carole Meredith, a professor and geneticist at the University of California at Davis using DNK analysis discovered that Californian Zinfandel is actually a old Croatian variety called Crljenak. Crljenak and the American wine Zinfandel are in fact the same wines. Crljenak today known as Zinfandel was brought to Long Island in the United States in the early 19th century where it became highly valued. After arriving to California it spread rapidly and now is most widespread wine in America. Enjoy this interesting story first-hand at Zinfandel birthplace.
