If you think you have tried all the good wines on Plešivica – you are grossly mistaken. A young woman from Zagreb, Lana Alujević, attracted the attention of connoisseurs and other wine lovers with her wines and her story in just two years.
Plešivica has long been synonymous for vineyards with a trillion liters view that produce grapes for making highest quality wines and sparkling wines. Another fact is that wine and women are (secretly) in love. So, the logical conclusion is that you will see the female company on terraces in front of wine cellars of Plešivica enjoying a great drink with a few bites of homemade food. But you surely don’t expect seeing a smiling woman winegrower on the steep slopes between the vines with a 15-liter tank on her back and a protective mask on her face as she performs the spring spraying of the vines.
Try to imagine the reaction of vineyard owners in late 2017 who responded to Lana’s ad for buying vineyards when they realized that they’re talking with a young woman who was determined to realize her idea which matured for a long time until that summer, visiting wineries on Pelješac, she made the final decision: I am going to buy a vineyard, cultivate it myself and produce wine!
