Bosnia-Herzegovina explained

The wine making region of Herzegovina has a Mediterranean climate with summer temperatures reaching as high as 40 degrees Celsius. The soil of the region is dry and stony, and the landscape is mainly made of karst. For this reason, drought is an ever-present challenge for wine makers.The main treasure of Herzegovina is the Zilavka white grape. The name of the grape means strong roots because its roots run so deep that it can cope with the lack of water in a drought and in soaring temperatures. The region is also known for the growth of Blatina, but this is far more difficult than only the female flowers.
