ST HILLS – SV. ROKO VINEYARD

svroko

Our vineyard St. Roko is located near the base of the scenic Pelješac peninsula, just north of the point where it becomes the mainland. This region is called Komarna, known for winegrowing since the Middle Ages. In this particular micro locality the vine was never grown and in the middle, stone tombs stand as legendary resting places of our ancient inhabitants, the Illyrians.

The mystical, southwest slopes of St. Roko are extremely steep, extremely difficult to cultivate, and extremely full of limestone which protects the vine from drought. To survive, the vine has to grow deep under a protective layer to find the fertile red soil. Exposed to the sun and wind, the vineyards offer spectacular views of the bay, where no one has made it before.
St. Roko, mystical, pioneering…
