Historically, viticulture has since ever been the leading economy for the local family and for the community. The Dubrovnik Republic paid true attention to it, as can be seen from a 1424 A.D. decree defining the prices of the wine, with the exception of the Malvasija produced in Konavle to which no limits were set.

Presently the Dubrovački podrumi dd has 35 hectares of the renewed vineyards and about 70 hectares of vineyards in cooperation with the local wine growers. The following wines are produced: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Ragusa white, Ragusa red, Plavac, Kadarun, Merlotina & Trajectum
