The story begins in the Pelješac peninsula, between Ston and Orebić in the small town of Drače. They made their first wine in 2011. It wasn’t a “regular” wine but rather wine kept under the sea in a glass bottle and an amphora. It was no mean feat, the first bottles were submerged in late-2013 and early-2014. Glass bottles containing 750 ml of wine are placed in a clay amphora which is then sealed with a cap and a double layer of wax and submerged under the sea at a depth of 18 to 28 metres. The wine is left to age for 700 days. Navis Mysterius - Brodska tajna is how the wine is named because of Croatia’s first underwater winery. They were granted a concession for a sunken ship that has been at the bottom of the sea for 30 years and today it’s used as a winery.
Every bottle actually holds a secret, it’s unique, one-of-a-kind, filled with love and hard work, and a lot of time has been invested in every single bottle.
Everything was made in Croatia: Plavac Mali 2012 from Janjina, the clay is fired in Petrinja, wrought iron bases from Sisak, pine wood cases from Varaždin... a product that’s creating a lot of buzz and that’s definitely sought after.
