Each bottle is unique, real unique, the product of great love, effort and time. The unique essence of the Adriatic Sea, exquisite wine 'Plavac 2012' from Janjina, clay that is baked in Petrinja, stands made of wrought iron from Sisak, pinewood boxes which are made in Varaždin, glass, cork ... Everything is pure Croatian product.

"Five years ago we came up with the idea to start this project, although the story started accidentally twelve years ago, when like a gift we received one bottle of wine which had on top remains of ancient amphorae, the real story started by joining with Ivo Šegović, who engaged in viticulture in Janjina."

A method of production
On the sunny slopes of Pelješac peninsula, Premium wine Plavac Edivo is produced with a great deal of care and love… After it has been bottled and placed in a terracotta amphora, it is sunken under the sea to the depth of 18-25 meters. All of them are perfectly stored, laid on its cork and scattered on several locations of Pelješac aquatorium. It ages in bottles for three months, and later on under the sea for one to two years...

"The idea of immersion bottles and amphorae under the sea seemed feasible, but it took time to check a lot of things and explore."
The real story began in 2011. when we made the first wine and began with the research, and the first amphorae were dropped in late 2013. and early 2014.
Research if is it even possible something like that, started in several different locations around the peninsula of Pelješac. With the bottles we immediately found out, but with amphorae was difficult in the beginning. It was necessary to investigate whether it can be possible to put glass bottle directly in an amphora, because wine could lose quality by penetration of the sea. We decided to use a glass bottle 0.75L that goes in a clay amphora, and the whole thing goes under the sea. Of course, all that we protected with good cork and with two layers of rubber.

All amphorae are arranged in cages, and secured with the padlock to prevent the theft.
