Malvasija, a white grape sort grown in Konavle region, shares its name with sorts in Italy and Spain. Most likely originating from the Greeks, it was first recorded in the archives of Dubrovnik as early as 1383, when the Bosnian king Tvrtko I Kotromanić demanded to purchase a barrel. Malvasija was even sent to the Ottoman Empire, but labeled as ‘medicine’, as Islam prohibited consumption of alcohol. Today, this low-yielding sort is considered a demanding one, but in hard-working and skillful hands of Konavle vintners, it is undergoing a Renaissance.
