The Lug winery in Crnići near Stolac has been promoted as a family project from the outset. It forges the aromas of its wines on that elusive home-made whiff that nails you to the table with wine glasses and a jug at the first drop. The story of the origin of the winery is almost cinematic and includes the happy ending for the Perutina family of returnees in this area.
This family understood their return to the village between Čapljina and Stolac as going back to the ashy and sandy fertile lands that give you an annual gift and do not ask for anything in return. The gift is, of course, a local vine from which these skilled hosts squeeze out the top-of-the-line Herzegovinian wines such as blatina and žilavka as local brands, cabernet sauvignon and other products from the line of these pleasantly intoxicating liquids. If you want to stay longer in an environment with unique nature, you can look for accommodation in a nearby restaurant. Before consuming wine you can also go cycling which has expanded into a traditional bike ride event in this area. On wheels or, even better, on foot, you can head over to the local stećak tombstone field which has been telling silent stories about this corner of Herzegovina for centuries.
You don’t have to try the wine on an empty stomach because the hosts will offer you unforgettable homemade cheese and prosciutto made in line with the traditional recipes. There are also main dishes such as lamb, veal and carp and grilled trout. This is one of the sunniest parts of BiH, which is why you will appreciate the opportunity to try a refreshing homemade tomato or onion salad. You will be able to feel every ray of sunshine you absorb on your trip to Lug, and the local sharp air will clear your mind just enough to make it easy to remember every meter of the inevitable journey back to the winery.
