A SMALL FAMILY WINERY FROM THE PELJEŠAC PENINSULA HAS COME TO THE SPOTLIGHT AGAIN WHILE PRESENTING THEIR BEST WINE TO POPE BENEDICT XVI. THE WINE IN QUESTION IS MADIRAZZA DINGAČ GRANDE RISERVA OF 2005, WHICH HAS ALREADY WON MANY WINE CONNOISSEURS’ FAVOURABLE REVIEWS. DINGAČ HAPPENS TO BE THE MOST FAMOUS CROATIAN WINE IN THE WORLD. IT WAS NAMED AFTER THE LOCATION, THE DINGAČ WINE REGION, WHERE THE GRAPES ARE GROWN. MADIRAZZA DINGAČ GRANDE RISERVA WAS MADE FROM THE CAREFULLY SELECTED GRAPES OF THE HIGHEST QUALITY. THEN IT WAS KEPT TO MATURE FOR FIVE YEARS IN THE SILENCE OF OAK BARRELS IN THE WINERY’S CELLAR. ITS PREMIERE CAME TO LIGHT DURING A SATURDAY’S LUNCH OF POPE BENEDICT XVI WITH 120 BISHOPS AND CARDINALS. THE YOUNG VINTNER, MR TONĆI MADIRAZZA, PROUDLY STATES THAT PRESENTING THE WINE TO HIS HOLY FATHER WAS A GREAT HONOUR. ‘THE FACT THAT THE POPE, ONE OF THE MOST INFLUENTIAL PEOPLE IN THE WORLD, CHOSE TO TASTE OUR DINGAČ WAS A GREAT REWARD IN ITSELF.’ OUR WINERY WISHES TO REWARD YOU TOO.
