Vrgorac is a small city quaintly situated on the slopes of the Matokit Mountain (lat. Monte Acutum, acute peak) which holds a rich cultural and gastronomic heritage in its bosom. It is inextricably tied with Biokovo and its mountains, but also with incredibly beautiful fields. Gradina Fortress, a medieval defence fort, is also reminiscent of that period. It towers over the city as a crown, whereas the ancient urban nucleus, the centre of the old town, developed at its foot. We are the largest producer of Dalmatian prosciutto in Croatia, and besides the exceptionally favourable climate, the preserved centennial tradition of salting, smoking and curing of prosciutto in conformity with the traditional family recipes serves as ample testimony to the rich history of prosciutto production in Vrgorac. The story of Vrgorac wines began in rich wine-growing hills spread around the bountiful fields of Rastok, Bunina and Jezero where over 10 million vine stocks were planted yielding supreme quality grapes, thus our wines are renowned for their distinctive identity and specific aromas.
