Let’s face it: by this point in your life, getting pissed above sea level feels so… done. 

It’s time to try something new: getting red wine pissed below sea level.
You can now do just that in Croatia, where the country’s first underwater winery (what a beautiful sentence, can we just say) recently opened.
Edivo Vina, located about an hour’s drive north of Dubrovnik on the unfairly picturesque Pelješac peninsula, ages its delicious wine underwater because “the sea provides natural cooling in ideal conditions and the perfect silence underwater improves the quality.”
After letting the wine age for three months above ground, it’s stored in what’s called a amphorae (essentially just clay jugs that are packaged in cages, then locked to prevent any rogue divers from swimming off with bottles of wine) and pegged into the sea to ripen for another one to two years.
That’s where you, wine-loving tourist, come in: visitors to Edivo Vina can dive to the below-sea-level winery with a staff member to see exactly how the process is carried out and – most importantly – pick out a bottle to drink of dry land.
And there’s no need to worry about your wine being a watery mess, because the bottles are all sealed with two layers of think rubber to prevent saltwater seeping in. 
The best bit? You get to keep the bottle(s) once you’ve guzzled the contents and they make a *way* better souvenir than some shitty fridge magnet, covered in pretty shells and barnacles and coral from their adventures below the sea.

Brb, packing.
