This underwater winery in Croatia is one for your travel bucket list

Take a trip below sea level to visit this unique winery on a stunning Croatian peninsula.

Croatia has fast become one of the hottest holiday destinations in Europe - and now there's another reason to visit.

An underwater winery has opened on the stunning Pelješac peninsula, allowing visitors to dive down for a closer look at the wine-making process.

Edivo Vina is the country's first winery below sea level, where clay jugs of wine are stored for up to two years after being aged above ground.

The owners say the process gives the wine a distinct pinewood aroma, adding that the sea provides natural cooling and "perfect silence", which improves the quality.

All bottles are corked and have two layers of rubber to stop water leaking in, or wine leaking out.

The jugs are then stored securely in locked cages, ready for visitors to dive down and collect a bottle to take home.

Divers visiting the unique winery will also swim by an old sunken boat settled at the bottom of the Mali Ston Bay.

It's about an hour north of Dubrovnik and is definitely one to add to the travel bucket list!
