Luka is the man who will surely take the credit when Pošip, the pride of Korčula winemaking, shoots to fame outside Croatia. Combination of low yield per vine and modern vinification techniques creates wines with a polished international style where  he took traditional winemaking to a higher level and still remains faithful to his roots.

Luka is also a passionate poet, in love with the sea and his island, so he believes in the freedom of artistic expression, both when it comes to words and wine. As he said, it takes a bit of creativity and insanity to do what he does. Even those who are far from being wine geeks will recognize the warmth and aromas of the south Adriatic island in Krajančić's wines, but reinterpreted in his way.

Plavac Mali is native to southern Dalmatia and Croatia's most popular and best known red wine. It is grown on the southern slopes of the island, except in Lumbarda where it is grown not only because it makes a good wine itself, but also in order to help grow the Grk. Unlike most varieties  Grk has only a female flower, so Plavac Mali is grown alongside it as a pollinator. Dark red, even garnet colour with traces of purple. Salty like the sea that surrounds nearby vineyards, it has a rich fruity bouquet, well-integrated tannins  and powerful, smooth afterteaste.

Food pairing: dark meats, especially game, and also with fish and mature cheeses.

Mr. Krajančić, from friends clled by his first name - Luka is the man who will surely take the credit when Pošip, the pride of Korčula winemaking, shoots to fame outside Croatia. Combination of low yield per vine and modern vinification techniques creates wines with a polished international style, which can bring negative comments from fellow islanders on the account of disrespect of tradition. But Luka is not worried because he took traditional winemaking to a higher level and still remained true to his roots.

Luka is also a passionate poet, in love with the sea and his island, so he believes in the freedom of artistic expression, both when it comes to words and wine. As he said, it takes a bit of creativity and insanity to do what he does. Even those who are far from being wine geeks will recognize the warmth and aromas of the south Adriatic island in Krajančić's wines, but reinterpreted in his way.

 His most popular product is the elegant and well-balanced Pošip Intrada, a benchmark wine for the whole variety. Pošip Sur lie is another story, a complex and mature wine for real connoisseurs, which can compete with any great white in the world. We dare say that the best kept secret in Croatian wine world is Luka's red wine Plavac mali, which should hopefully enter the market in near future.
