In Putnikovići, on the traditional Feast of St. Anne, a new Pelješac attraction dedicated to vineyards, wine and Dalmatian villagers will be open.
The traditional feast on the occasion of St. Anne's Day on July 26 in Putnikovići on Pelješac collects hundreds of lovers of top quality wines and Dalmatian atmosphere every year. But, this year people have one more reason to celebrate. Namely, on St. Anne´s Day the first Croatian Museum of viticulture and enology will ceremoniously open which includes the House of Winemaking Tradition.
“We are extremely proud for ending the project with two floors, surface sized 800m2, where our exhibits from our long viticulture and enology history are being held. St. Anne's Day is a great opportunity for guests to look around this unique museum and to enjoy in our wines” says Jozo Rabušić
, director of the Agricultural Cooperative Putniković, which gathers more than 140 winemakers from Putniković, Žuljan and Ponikve.
Within the winery, three years ago the House of Winemaking Tradition opened with valuable exhibits and tasting room, while visitors will have chance to see a replica of native Dalmatian house decorated in the attic of museum. Pictures from onlyCROATIA.com recent visit to that House and PZ Putnikovići you can see in this article.
This small place from Pelješac hides one of the rarely preserved baroque church in its original shape, St. Anne's church which, legend says, was builded by winemakers to protect their wine. Wine “Sveta Ana”, which goes well with fish and Ston's oysters, got its name from that church.
The PZ Putniković is one of the largest and most successful wineries in Pelješac, which annually fills out 800.000 to one million bottles of wine. Among them is dominated by a small Plavac, a variety that gives the best results on Pelješac.
