Experience The Nuić Vineyards
Nuić vineyards are located in the southwestern part of Herzegovina, in Crnopod, between Medjugorje and Ljubuški, where the autochthonous varieties Žilavka and Blatina are mostly grown.
The vineyards cover an area of 35 ha, perfect for growing vines.
The history of the Nuić Vineyard begins in 2004 when the extremely beautiful Orlovac location was cultivated. Valuable hands surrendered to the rugged red soil and over 30,000 vines were planted on an area of 7 ha. In addition to the autochthonous Herzegovinian varieties Žilavka, Blatina and Trnjak, there are also Ben and Krkošija, as well as Cabernet Sauvignon, Alicante Bouschet and Plavac Mali.
Learn about process
Harvesting in the vineyards begins when the growers decide that the grapes have reached the perfect balance between sugar levels and physiological maturity. Sometimes the grape harvest must be approached to avoid threatening weather conditions.
Harvesting grapes is one of the most important steps in the wine production process. The main factor that determines when exactly the grape harvest will be done relates to the ripeness of the fruit itself. Grape ripeness is measured by taking into account the amount of sugar, acid and tannin. Before the harvest, winemakers decide on the type of wine they want to produce, and the ripeness of the fruit is taken into account in order to make the wine as high quality as possible.
