Sip wine at Toreta Winery

Slap-bang in the middle of Korčula island, surrounded by sandy plains, you’ll find the Toreta winery in the small village of Smokvica. Grapes have been cultivated here for centuries, most notably the white Pošip.

Toreta is not only a family-run business where you can sample and buy this crisp tipple – ideally matched with fish – but an education in itself. Vintage wine-making equipment tells the story of the harsh existence of yesteryear, while traditional methods are still used today.

After your tour of the winery, sit back and sip a glass of Pošip while gazing over the hills that protect Smokvica from the fierce Bura wind.
