One of the top artisanal wineries in Croatia
Located on the Pelješac Peninsula, near the Dalmatian coast, the Bura Mrgudic winery is run by siblings- Mare Mrgudic and Niko Bura and is one of the top artisanal wineries in Croatia.
Following traditional principles of winemaking
The winery is based on the tradition of two families that for generations (dating back to 1860) have been engaged in the production of grapes and wine. Their vineyards situated on the “cru” slopes of the Postup and Dingač areas are so steep that they can only be worked by hand. The region is famous for Plavac Mali, a grape that is the offspring of Crljenak (Zinfandel), which loves baking in the heat and greatly expresses the site on which it is grown.
The cultivation of grapes takes place in the traditional manner with minimal yields and reaching full maturity, which brings balanced flavours and aromas into wines
Bura Mrgudic winery: in association with Benmosche family New York
The Bura family produces excellent quality wines Dingač, Galerija, Plavac mali sivi, Plavac, Rukatac, and Ruža Dalmatinska. Bura’s cellar from its vineyards have generational experience and professional access to production. They are also in association with the Benmosche family of New York. Bura Cellar collaborates in the production of the Benmosche wines: Dingač and Zinfandel.
The vineyards of Bura Mrgudic winery are found in gravel terraces, rich in minerals, among which potassium stands out, facing south, down to the sea on a slope of up to 50 degrees, from a height ranging from 300 meters to 150 meters, in a climate, typically Mediterranean flora and fauna. The richness in potassium is probably the most important factor responsible for the quality of the grape and the Dingač wine.
