“Čagalj”, or European Golden jackal - is a native to Pelješac, and lends its name to a centuries old family moniker. Back in the late 1800s, near the village of Ponikve, high above the old Napoleonic road, “Željezni Pavo” [Steely Paul], the great grand-father of the current winemaker earned a reputation for his ceaseless toil. He planted his vines three wide on the drystone terraces his family hued from the steep limestone hills and on the rich plains under the fortifications of Ston. Pavo would show his children how to plant vine cuttings in the deep cracks of bare rock. "The harder the vine struggles to grow, the better will be its fruit," he claimed. “Nothing good comes without the effort.”
Today, Mario Androvic continues the simple wine making tradition of his forefathers, an un-tampered, true to variety offering of the ancient local grape, Mali Plavac (“Little Blue”), nurtured in the same family vineyards, beside the old stone road built through Pelješac by Napoleon’s troops.
