Booking for : Dubrovnik Wine Weekend






Dubrovnik Wine Weekend

Tour Details

Treat yourself to a long weekend in magical Dubrovnik. Discover excellent wines of Croatian South, enjoy finger licking local food, and learn about the rich history of the area. This program is designed and hosted by passionate wine lovers – Dubrovik locals – and includes hotel accommodation, daily programs, airport transfers and all the operational support you need for a stress-free city break.

Dubrovnik, which is often referred to as the “Pearl of the Adriatic” is rightfully Croatia’s most recognised travel destination. However, it is also in the middle of the traditional wine making region of Southern Dalmatia. Here, full bodied reds have been the staple of wine making in the recent history, often unjustly overshadowing very interesting crisp white wines which have been made in this area for centuries. During your stay you will visit the vineyards and meet the winemakers as you taste your way around Southern Croatia.

Local food is nothing less than mouth-watering. With the guidance of local experts you will enjoy delicious meals made with locally sourced ingredients, all in wonderful authentic settings. Along with wine and food, you will get to learn a thing or two about the area’s fascinating history and visit some of the local attractions.

Prepare yourself for a long weekend of breath taking vistas, mouth-watering bites and magnificent wine. Learn about this, one of the most beautiful parts of Europe, and see why Croatian wine scene is gaining international acclaim at a very fast pace.

Day 2,Countryside Region of Konavle

After breakfast, you will start your exploration of southernmost Croatian region with a breath taking panoramic stop on top of Mount Srd, overlooking Dubrovnik. Next stop will be Konavle region. This traditionally agricultural part of once independent Dubrovnik Republic managed to preserve to this day not only the spirit of traditional countryside, but plenty of old practices and values. Here you will be treated to a close look into the old ways of life with a presentation and refreshment at the ancient water-powered mills. This trip wouldn’t be complete without a visit to one of the most important local wineries where a very special local white variety will be presented and tasted. This will be a perfect introduction for a hearty countryside lunch in an idyllic setting. Before returning to Dubrovnik, a stop will be made at the nearby seaside town of Cavtat. This historic town predates Dubrovnik and has had a very important role in its history. Leisurely paced exploration or coffee by the sea will be the order of the day in Cavtat before returning to Dubrovnik. Rest of the afternoon is free to enjoy exploring Dubrovnik on your own.

Day 3,Peljesac Peninsula

Today is special as we are exploring Croatia’s perhaps most renowned wine making region of Peljesac Peninsula. Here, indigenous sort of Plavac Mali – the most important black grape variety on the coast – gives the best results in small protected appellations of Dingac and Postup. After arriving at the base of the peninsula, you will enjoy a first-hand look into another famous Peljesac tradition – oyster farming. Some of the most delicious European oysters are grown here for many centuries. To see the traditional techniques and have them explained, you will be treated to a boat ride and tasting directly at the oyster farms themselves. After the oyster farm visit, remainder of lunch will be served in the seaside restaurant. Trip will continue along winding roads among the scattered villages and vineyards until you reach villages of Potomje and Ponikve. In both of the villages visits will be made to small, family owned local wineries making wonderful wine full of character, mostly using local black grape varieties. Before leaving Peljesac Peninsula, you will visit charming town of Ston which boasts ancient salt factory and some of the longest medieval defensive walls in Europe. Late afternoon return will leave you enough time to freshen up or do some independent exploring before a special farewell dinner
