From the Homeland of Pošip…

Located in the quaint village of Cara on the Dalmatian Island of Korcula, this small vineyard produces one of the most impressive white wines in Europe. The history of the Island of Korcula, the birthplace of the famous traveler, Marco Polo, goes back to Homeric times. The wine making tradition was brought by the Greeks over 3,000 years ago. Posip is a native Dalmatian varietal that produces fragrant medium to full body wines. The Cara Posip pairs very nicely with traditional seafood but also with a hearty pork chop and other grilled meats.

“Because of you, I’d rob a bank…”

One croatian song goes “because of you, I would rob a bank”. Well, something similar happened a while ago…

Newspaper article from the year 2007 states: “While the owners of Pošip were on vacation, from the warehouse in Zagreb’s city district Trešnjevka burglars stole several thousand bottles of wine Pošip from Korčula (Marco Polo) and Rukatac in the period between 20 July and 3 August.”
