Apart from the amphorae wine, wine bottles are also aged at the Croatian winery in the shimmering Adriatic sea. A nearby sunken boat at the bottom of the Mali Ston Bay is used to store the amphorae for 700 days at a temperature of 15 to 17 degrees akin to an underwater cellar.Upon removal, the amphorae acquire a beautiful layer of corals and shells and a plethora of other sea flora and fauna. To commemorate this exquisite viticulture experience, the old amphorae jugs that resemble props straight out of an ancient fairytale, are also sold as unique gift items or souvenirs by the winery. The pinewood boxes in which the bottles are sold in, are made in the city of Varaždin, off the coast of northern Croatia.
And in case you are not up for taking a deep sea dive to the winery, you could still shop for the bottles online and they will be shipped to you at your convenience. Otherwise, the winery organises supervised dives to the wine cellar at request.Find out more about the Edivo Vina and the details regarding the winery & bar here.Things to do:
