The Benmosche wines are a collaboration between of the American Benmosche family and the Croatian Bura-Mrgudić family. Robert Benmosche fell in love with Croatia in the early 2000s, bought several acres of land on the famous Dingač slope where he began planting the Plavac Mali grapes. He also bought several hectares of land near Viganj in the far west of the Pelješac peninsula for which he had 1,500 vines of the Zindfandel grape brought over from Napa Valley.
The vineyards, planted in 2006, are still young but already fully organic. Under the watchful eye of the Bura-Mrgudić family, the wines are produced using traditional techniques after which they are aged for 12 months in barrique barrels and another 18 months in bottle. Per year Benmosche produces 4,000 to 5,000 bottles of Zinfandel and Dingač, some of which were served at President Biden's inauguration in 2020, a special achievement by winemaker Benmosche!
