Winery Nuić

Nuić vineyards are located in the southwestern part of Herzegovina, in Crnopod, between Medjugorje and Ljubuški, where the autochthonous varieties Žilavka and Blatina are mostly grown.

The vineyards cover an area of 35 ha, perfect for growing vines.


The history of the Nuić Vineyard begins in 2004, when the extremely beautiful Orlovac location was cultivated. Valuable hands surrendered to the rugged red soil and over 30,000 vines were planted on an area of 7 ha. In addition to the autochthonous Herzegovinian varieties Žilavka and Blatina, there are also Ben and Krkošija, as well as Trnjak, Cabernet Sauvignon, Alicante Bouschet and Plavac Mali.
At the beginning of 2008, three wines were launched: Žilavka, Blatina and Blatina Barrique.

The location is located in a lowland surrounded by fairytale hills, through which the wind called “bura” from Velež passes and dries the stone from the morning dew, reducing the need for pesticides.Prior to cultivation, the site was a rocky plateau covered with typical Herzegovinian vegetation, of which we can list pomegranate, thorn, heather, sage, immortelle and spruce.

In 2009, 7 ha were planted in Dugolaze, and in 2010 another 21 ha of vineyards. In addition to the existing varieties, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Syrah, Touriga Nacional, and from the whites, Korčula’s Pošip, were planted here for the first time.
