When it comes to the reds (red wine), Peljesac Peninsula wines are the best Croatia has to offer. Join us on this tour to try the best of the best -and more.
Tour is always guided by one of our two guides, Ivo or Stjepan (click here to learn more of the guides), who both hold WSET and Croatian Sommelier’s Degrees, are also licensed guides and grew up in the area, so you cannot get better companions/educators/entertainers than these two.
Our goal on this tour is to teach and present the BEST wine that this area offers and introduce you to local food delicacies these wines perfectly pair with. Tour consists of a visit to a big, premium winery, a top small family-owned winery, as well as an unforgettable outdoor oyster and sparkling wine pairing experience.
Your private tour starts with a pick up at your hotel in Dubrovnik with our Mercedes minivan or Nissan X-trail luxury SUV and driving about 50 min up the Adriatic coast towards the peninsula of Peljesac. During the drive, your guide will introduce you to the history of this area, geographic, and the climate – a necessary foundation to understand its wine-growing story.
In the village of Mali Ston, we will meet our old friend and fisherman Mario, who will take us in his fishing boat to the oyster beds (the sea is always perfectly calm since we are in the bay, so no worries that you would get seasick). We will explain about oysters and mussels, their growth, and cultivation while Mario picks and serves fresh oysters on the boat. Our guide will pair it with Peljesac sparkling wine – a great way to start your day.
After coming back to the mainland (the whole experience is about 40 min), we will continue through the Peljesac peninsula (with a possible toilette/coffee stop or walking tour of the medieval city of Ston). We will drive through the spectacular scenery of vineyards, olive orchards, valleys, and slopes, while your guide will explain the history of wine in the region, terroirs, varieties, and production.
