Vinopedia All you want to know about grapes and wine, in one place now!
Prošek is a sweet dessert wine that is traditionally from the southern area of Dalmatia, Croatia. It is made using dried wine grapes in the passito method. Good quality Prošek is usually much more expensive by volume than other wines due to an average of seven times more grapes being needed to make the same amount of wine. While it can vary in the maximum amount, the alcohol level needed to be certified as a true dessert wine must be at least 15%.
Age appears to be best in four things; old wood best to burn, old wine to drink, old friends to trust, and old authors to read.
“A sweetheart is a bottle of wine, a wife is a wine bottle.”
~ Charles Baudelaire
