Frequently asked Questions

What kind of wines are we trying?

We will be focusing mostly on Plavac Mali variety, indigenous to this area, known for producing medium to full bodied red wines.

Do you have to be knowledgeable about wines to enjoy this tour?

Not at all, our tours are designed to appeal to both wine experts who are going to learn something about Croatian indigenous variety(ies) or beginners who will get an introduction into the world of wine making and wine tasting

Is this tour good to do on a very hot day?

Yes. Many of our guests are cautious about booking this tour on hot summer days because of possible exhaustion, but actually most of our time (outside of the short tour of Ston) is spent in air conditioned van or cool wine cellars… so this is a perfect choice to escape the heat.

Will I have an option of buying wine at the wineries?

Yes. All the wineries we work with have an option of selling their wines on the spot, with some offering international shipping and credit card payments, and others insisting on cash payments becuase of the technical limitations.

My spouse is not crazy about wine, will he be bored?

Wine is just one (very important) aspect of this tour. We will also enjoy local history, wonderful sceneries, plenty of interesting stories, and delicious local food.
