WINERY

A PLACE OF PLEASURES

The wine cellar has always been the backbone of the lives of the Šuljić and Boškinac families. The varieties of grape have changed over the years, wars have passed through the Novalja field – but the vineyards have left an indelible trace of survival, and the production of wine has been nurtured here for centuries. To remain on the rocky terrain, and to continue walking along the trails of our forefathers has been a constant in the life of this family, from granddad Boškinac to his grandsons. Some ten years ago, a new period began on the foundations of tradition. The Boškinac Winery was built in 2000, and that same year, a new vineyard was planted near the winery on 5 ha of land. Considering that for millennia, people have used wine to feed, refresh and heal themselves, the wall of the attractive winery bears the famous quote of Hippocrates “Let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food.” At Boškinac, we apply what people have known since times immemorial – that in moderate quantities, wine, especially red, truly benefits the health and the spirit.

INTRODUCTION

“With Gegić, I am in the constant process of researching the optimal variations, with regard to my philosophy and with what people expect from something indigenous. Every wine leaves room for exploration, this is always an ongoing process. Gegić also offers excitement, and the story of this wine continues. I believe that in time, more and more Pag wine makers will get involved, as this would ensure the most rapid progress.”
- Boris Šuljić, a true lover of good wine.
