This week on In the Drink, Joe Campanale is joined by Ivan Miloš of Miloš Winery on the Pelješac peninsula in Croatia. Grape and wine production in Ponikve, on the Peljesac peninsula has been a Milos family tradition for generations. They base their production on the autochthonous grape variety of Plavac mali. They have about 15 hectares of vineyards on the finest locations on Peljesac; on the slippery slopes of the Prapratno cove next to Ponikve village. Vineyards have been planted on sandy soil formed on the dolomite rocks. They are now planning to plant an additional 5 hectares of new plantations. Handcrafted vineyards and ecological production show the effort we put into every detail. This program was brought to you by Visit Napa Valley
