QUALITY DRY WHITE WINE
The wine Beleca ("divota") was obtained by an innovative blending of two Dalmatian white varieties, pošip and bogdanuša, in a ratio of 50:50.
Originally from Korčula, pošip has found its home all over Dalmatia and has recently flourished as one of the most acclaimed Croatian white varieties. It produces full-bodied wines with powerful aromas, which are therefore traditionally combined with lighter varieties.
Bogdanuša is an autochthonous variety from Hvar with distinct freshness and floral aromas. It is most often planted on a blackthorn tree, which gives it additional refreshing acids - which is why it perfectly resists the rash.
In this synergy, each of the varieties gives its best: a burst of power, a rich body and more moderate acids, and the typical varietal aromas of apricot, peach (stone fruit) and minerality, while bogdanusha has more delicate floral aromas and freshness.
The result is a characteristically southern, but also fluffy wine with a lower percentage of alcohol (about 12.5%), which makes it an ideal choice for daily consumption and all similar occasions that require lighter wines. The name of the wine in the dialect means beauty (ital. bellezza).

TOP DRY WHITE WINE
Pošip is a premium dry varietal wine, produced from the autochthonous Dalmatian Pošip variety of the same name.
In addition to freshness, Pošip wine also offers more complex aromas of ripe southern fruit, rounded off by aging in oak barrels. Pošip is one of the rare varieties that has been confirmed to be of Dalmatian, more precisely, Korčula origin. Pošip is a powerful wine with a fuller body, but balanced by nice acids, i.e. freshness. Specific varietal aromas of pošip: apricots and other stone fruits, as well as fresh citrus and Mediterranean herbs (smilje, ethereal herbs), are complemented by the aging of part of the wine in new oak barrels. About 30% of the wine spends 6 months in new French (Garbelloto, Seguin Moreau) and one Slavonian (Golub) barrique barrel, during which time it is also aged on fine yeasts (sur-lie), which gives it a fuller body and specific notes (toast, brioche , association with champagne).
