Pelješac peninsula is the second largest peninsula in Croatia well known as the wine empire. You will see a lot of shellfish farms because Dalmatian coast has a very long tradition in mariculture. Delicious oysters (The European Flat Oysters and Ostrea edulis) and mussels are the way of living there.
Ston and its walls do not offer only centuries-old history but salt works that have remained faithful to the natural way of salt production. In the middle Ages it was not just a way of payment but also cause for wars and establishing important trade routes. It is known as white gold from the sea, indispensable food for humans and animals.
Carefully chosen soil, position, 250 sunny days in a year and Mediterranean climate are primary conditions for top quality wine. That is why Pelješac vineyards are producing high quality wines, which makes this place favourite for wine lovers.
