Located on the Pelješac peninsula, the Edivo Vina is now open to visitors to dive with staff members below-the-sea-level.

Plus, you’ll swim by an old sunken boat at the bottom of the Mali Ston Bay, on your way to the winery.
Where they make the wine?
The wine-making process doesn’t take place entirely below the sea. No. They take the wine, aged above ground, for three months, and then they store it in amphorae, below the water. All for one to two years.
What is an amphora?
Well, it’s a clay jug with two handles and a narrow neck.
This unique storage method makes the wine taste different, rather of a distinct pinewood aroma.
How they prevent leaks?
The water increases the odds of leakages, but the owners have already taken multiple precautions to avoid that.
Apart from a cork, all the bottles have two layers of rubber to prevent saltwater from seeping in, or the wine out.
Vinho embaixo do mar. Sim. A vinícola Edivo, localizada em Drace, pertinho de Dubrovnik, ficou conhecida pelo processo inusitado na produção de seus vinhos. As garrafas são guardadas em ânforas a 20 metros abaixo do oceano e retiradas apenas dois anos depois. O resultado são garrafas lindíssimas – repletas de elementos naturais do mar – e uma bebida especial. Segundo eles, a escuridão, a temperatura sempre igual e o silêncio são fatores fundamentais na maturação do vinho. #croacia #day86 #voltaomundo #idaevolta
Packaged in cages and locked, the bottles stored this way to prevent unauthorized divers to steal the bottles.
The owners decided to age their wine underwater because “the sea provides natural cooling in ideal conditions and the perfect silence underwater improves the quality.”
And once you’ve drunk the contents, you’ve got a beautiful bottle that you can display, give away or reuse.
In addition, the bottles, covered in gorgeous shells and coral makes it a great accessory for your dinner table.
So, who’s ready to go to this beautiful place, because it’s now or never?
