Saša and his lovely wife Magdalena are wonderful hosts at their charming “vintage chic” tasting room right next to the winery in Dračevica. Listening to them tell their story while nibbling on homemade Dalmatian finger food and sipping their three wines (there’s more to come in future) makes time pass very slowly. And you should get Magdalena recite her poems about wine in Brač dialect, written on Bročko rič label. Label design reflects two things most important to them: family and home. So on the bottle of Bosso you can see the image of their great grandpa, the hobby winemaker, and the illustration on the charming Spoža (“Bride”) shows grandma Senjković on her wedding day.
Bročko rič is an elegant everyday Plavac mali southern red, Bosso is its upgraded version, a full-bodied 14 months barrel-aged Plavac mali made from selected grapes, and Spoža is a wonderfully aromatic and addictive rosé wine made from, again, Plavac mali grapes. All three labels are true representatives of the Island of Brač, its Mediterranean soul, the perfect harmony of sun, sea and soil. And all three are a huge hit on the Croatian wine market. Staying true to their roots and choosing quality over quantity sounds like a great plan for the future of Senjković Winery.
