Wine Tours

Wine is an essential part of the Croatian life, and thus its cuisine. Inherited from the ancient Greeks and Romans, wine making has been perfected in these areas for over two millennia now. Following the hardships of the last two centuries, including phylloxera famishing much of the country’s vineyards, it is undergoing an intense Renaissance as we speak.
With several distinct wine regions and a number of highly individual wine-makers, Croatia is a Dionysian playground for all infatuated with this divine juice. Meet the ‘extreme winemakers’ of the Dalmatian South, Frano Miloš and Mario Bartulović. Compare the wines Mike Grgich creates in Peljepac, at his origins, to his celebrated vintages from the Napa Valley. Travel to juxtapose the tastes of authentic local sorts, Babić, Crljenak Kaštelanski, Pošip, Grk, Bogdanuša or follow the tracks of Dalmatia’s signature red sort, Plavac Mali. Experience the ancient wisdom of clay amphoras embedded in Istria’s favourite white, Malvazija and stream to the peninsula’s hilltops to soak in the views of endless vineyards.
Irrespective of the part of Croatia you are visiting, explore its various wine sorts and tastes as an integral part of your experience, enjoying each moment of each glass just like Croatians do.

Reds or whites?

From the North to the South and from the inlands, over the mountains to the Adriatic coast, Croatia serves exceptional wines of distinctive regional character with every meal, taking each opportunity to celebrate moments in life.
Rest assured you will encounter some familiar faces around here, such as Merlot, Cabernet, Shiraz, as well as several local variations on Central European sorts, such as Graševina (Welschriesling) or aromatic Traminac (Gewürztraminer), grown in Slavonia. But you will also encounter countless authentic sorts, some of them incredibly location-specific, like the famed Istrian white Malvazija and Konavle villages Malvasija, praised since the times of the Dubrovnik Republic. Or Pošip and Grk of Korčula island, Bogdanuša on Hvar or Žlahtina on Krk. Among the reds, Teran is the signature of Istria, Babić of Northern Dalmatia, and Crljenak Kaštelanski, related to both America’s beloved Zinfandel and Croatia’s Plavac Mali, in Dalmatia and its islands.
Thriving all along the coast, Plavac Mali (red grape) is, without a doubt, Dalmatia’s favourite. Telling tales of each location and its stories of winds, sun, and sea, Plavac Mali lures winemakers intro spicing it up with personal notes and inspiration, ultimately creating powerful reds and graceful, almost ethereal, roses.
