In Sovinjak, under the hundred-year old chestnut tree, the stone sun-clock counts time. The courtyard of the large parochial church reveals the view of the narrow Mirna Valley, the sleepy Mlunska Polja and the vineyards towards the north of the lonely Ćićarija.
Legend has it that the Roman empress Livia Drusilla ordered and drank exclusively the wine Pucinum from Sovinjak, which made it so famous.
In addition to wine production, Sovinjak is also well-known for the production of top quality "liquid gold" - olive oil. At the beginning of October every year this small town hosts White Sunday, the folk festival of wine and sparkling wine.
