Black Island Winery

Winery and tasting room in Smokvica on island Korcula.

About the winery
Merga Victa Pošip is a harmonious and fresh white wine with floral aromas spiced up with Mediterranean herbs but also citrusy and stone fruits aromas. This is a modern face of Pošip, to be paired better with many of the dishes. It may be fresh and approachable when young but it is a structured wine with potential for development in bottle. Most importantly, it keeps all the character and flavors of Pošip from the village of Smokvica. The reason lies in the fact that grapes are grown by small family producers in what is traditionally considered to be the best sites for growing Pošip. These 25 local family farmers have been growing grapes for generations. All vineyard work is done by hand, harvest including. Harvest time is done early in the morning in order to preserve the freshness in the grapes. Handpicked grapes are then manually selected upon arrival in the cellar. Perfectly healthy grapes are cooled, crushed and pressed with minimum pressure.

History & Geography
If you walk up to a hill to overlook a total of 200 vineyards in a village of Smokvica, your Merga Victa Pošip will never taste the same to You. Vines for Merga Victa are at least 15-year-old and the selected grapes are grown in three different soil types. Some of the elders on the island believe it’s the combination of red soil, sandy soil and rocky soil responsible for achieving the right balance.
