. . . New style, organic production and distinctive best-in-class wines
A Grand Cro Winery with vineyards and wineries in Istria & Peljesac, Saint Hills is one of the premier new Croatian wineries.
Saint Hills’ secret is in the location of its vineyards – the rich terroir of Istria and Dalmatia, the sun and the sea, the north and the south winds, the stone and the soil. They use modern organic production techniques based on local wine making and growing traditions.
Saint Hill is best know for its full bodied, dark Dingac, one of the best examples of Dingac wine in Croatia. Its Sveti Roko, a plavac male made with grapes from vineyards at Komarna, just opposite Pelješac on the Dalmatian mainland, came fifth in Time Out’s ‘Battle of the Bottle’ annual wine-tasting weekend in 2013. They also make St Heels, a rosé made from the local Plavac Mali; and the white Nevina is a blend of Malvazija and Chardonnay. Saints Hills’ wine cellar and tasting room is in the heart of the Pelješac peninsula. The restaurant offers lovely views of the Pelješac countryside and serves excellent cuisine in the emerging Dalmatian fusion style.
The beautiful location, stunning views & excellent restaurant alone are worth the visit to St. Hills Winery. Add to this the chance to try some of Dalmatia’s best Dingac wine and the experience is truly characteristic of the Croatian Wine Renaissance.
Saint Hills focuses on indigenous wines including Malvasia from the Istrian vineyards of St. Ante in Radovani, and Plavac Mali from the Dalmatian vineyards St. Roko in Komarn. Wines: Nevina, Saint Heels, Sv. Roko, Dingac.
