Korcula, Dalmatian Coast, Croatia
Most likely derives from gorak (Croatian for bitter) or grk (Croatian for Greek).
The island of Korcula — on Croatia’s Dalmatian coast — is home to the exceptionally rare Grk white grape. A true survivor, the non-grafted vine produces wines that are a special treat and should be on your list to try. Due to the limited production, you’ll likely only get a chance to taste it for yourself while on the island.
