Pelješac Wine Tasting Tour from Dubrovnik

Discover the world-famous wineries of Pelješac and the historic town of Ston on this beautiful tour of the Dalmatian countryside. This long, narrow peninsula north of Dubrovnik is best known for its red wines of the Plavac Mali sort. Wine experts believe that the popular red vines called Zinfandel are direct descendants of Plavac Mali, exported by the Habsburg monarchy during the 19th century when they controlled Croatia. After a brief stop in Ston to see the second largest wall in Europe, visit to an ancient salt factory or town’s treasury we will make our way to the picturesque town of Orebić for the first wine tasting of our tour. Each winery has its own specialty, and the four we have selected for your tour represent the best that Pelješac has to offer. At Korta Katarina you will learn about the history of wine production in this region and sample three unique reds among them Postup. At Matuško winery in Potomje, see the production process firsthand and taste the most premium Dingač wines. Continuing through the Dingač tunnel, steep hillside vineyards toward Trstenik, your guide will explain what makes this region so ideal for growing grapes before stopping at our third tasting in Grgić winery. Here we will taste one of the rare white wines of Pelješac – called Pošip – which is almost exclusively produced on the island of Korčula. We finish our tour back in Ston with a visit to one last winery called Ćurlin and have planned lunch in the renowned seafood restaurant “Kapetanova Kuća”.

Wine tasting at Peljesac Peninsula is something any wine lover shoudn't miss! Local winemakers will welcome you with a selection of the highest quality wines of Southern region of Croatia.

Tripadvisor Daniele H: „I reserved a tour with Braco prior to our visit to Croatia and had a full itinerary I selected of 5 different wineries, a donkey farm, and an organic farm luncheon on Peljesac Peninsula. I prearranged for Braco to pick us up at our hotel in Dubrovnik and make the one hour commute with several fabulous surprise stops on the way to our destination. Braco was not only our driver, but he became our friend. For our 12 year wedding anniversary, he surprised us with a locket that had our names engraved on it and he took us to the Lover's bridge where we added our lock to the bridge and threw our keys into the Adriatic Sea. He took photos of us on several stops on our journey and later emailed them to us as well. When one winery did not work out on our route, he took us to one of his favorite wineries where they gave us a full tour of their property which was amazing!! I would definitely use this company again and we hope to stay in touch with Braco and hope to see him again in the future if he chooses to visit America or when we return one day back to Croatia! :) Thank you so much for the amazing service and private tour of everything we requested. We not only met a driver, but we made a new friend! :) <3“ Read more

Tripadvisor rhuggs11: „We did the guided wine tour yesterday, and it was so much more than that. Our guide Igor took us for a great local experience, where we stopped for home made goat cheese and other treats. It may seem like a steep price, but worth every penny. Oh yea, the wine is great too!“ Read more
