Vineyard. Click to enlarge the image in Adobe Stock (new tab).A long plain, broadside of watersheds, occupies the center of the peninsula of Pelješac. Planted vines and olive-trees, the ground, very stony, was patiently worked and the stones were used to build kilometers of small low walls. The vines are planted on very tilted grounds.
Tunnel of access to the vines of Dingac. Click to enlarge the image.The best believed comes from the soils of Dingač or Postup. If they are the Romans who systematized the exploitation of it, the vine was imported in Pelješac by the Greeks. A tunnel dug by the vine growers gives access the vines starting from the village, instead of climbing at the top of the mountain to go down again from there.
