Know More about this tour

Leave your Dubrovnik hotel by air-conditioned coach and head south to Konavle Valley on the southernmost tip of Croatia. Flanked by the Adriatic’s steep sea cliffs on one side and the foothills of Sniježnica Mountain on the other, the valley is as scenic as it is well-suited for winemaking -- evidenced by the abundance of vineyards and fruit trees peppering the countryside.
Hear the history of this relatively undiscovered area from your guide as you travel through its sleepy villages, admiring the sights. First stop is in Brajkovici village to visit a family-run wine cellar. Learn about grape cultivation in the valley and hear about the centuries-old expertise that attributes to the winery’s success. Besides a history of wine production, the unassuming little village also boasts a mini-train that runs deep into the heart of Konavle Valley. Board this train next, and then hop on and off as you travel through the area, visiting three more family-run wineries.
At each one, meet the local winemakers and hear their production secrets interpreted by your guide. Sample their best whites and reds, and try a few of the region’s syrupy sweet dessert wines while learning about their defining characteristics. In one of the vineyards, a typical ‘peasant’s brunch’ will be served to help you soak up the wines. Feast on a suitably rustic (and delicious) dish of bacon, onions, cheese, eggs and bread, and then enjoy a slice of traditional cake at the last winery visited.
Hop back aboard your mini-train for a final ride to the coastal village of Ljuta. Visit its old mill to learn how the village’s flour was milled in bygone days, and then watch a demonstration of another village craft – wool making! Dressed in Croatia’s eye-catching national attire, a host at the mill will explain these crafts, while showing you how vital goods were made.
Return to your Dubrovnik by coach, and arrive back at your hotel in the early evening.

  • a chance to see a few vineyards and a little talk from the owners but you will not see any of the the operation just a small talk and even less wine, nice little lunch though in what was nicest stop

  • overall, a fun trip into the countryside and meeting local wine makers.

    we reconfirmed our trip and our pickup time the day prior yet when we arrived, the transfer vehicle had to double check that we were on the tour. a little hiccup that was quickly fixed but it took me by surprise since we had just reconfirmed...

    the bus to Konavle Valley was entertaining. we learned some local history and i found our guide to be very engaging.

    the white wines were excellent at every stop. the reds left me a little underwhelmed but i come from California so i have high expectations. some of the liqueurs and dessert wines really surprised me. they were quite good!

    do not expect to have a meal out of this trip. uncooked bacon, raw green onions and hard boiled eggs do not constitute a lunch to me but i get the concept of the peasants lunch. and i was quite surprised that i liked the bacon so much!

    would i do it again? probably not but it was entertaining and a decent value for the money.

  • Absolutely amazing tour, everyone was so friendly, the wine was amazing and we even got food along the way.

  • poorly organized. bad guides. tour in both German and English took lots of time. Too many people, not everyone got a seat at the stops. stop at mill was irrelevant. lunch turned out to be bread and boiled egg.
    should have had water on the bus, old people were suffering. no cellars. very little wine.

  • Tour was great fun. Enjoyed the experience, the owners of the vineyards were not at all pushy in trying to sell produce. It has been a long time since I rode a kiddy train ride - great fun

  • Great time, great people. I would highly recommend this trip.

  • The wine tour was very enjoyable and exceeded expectations. The tour guides were very pleasant and handled those who spoke English as well as those speaking German.

  • This was brilliant value, and one of the highlights of our stay in Dubrovnik. We visited five vineyards, from very small (two and a half acres) to large commercial operations, and were offered at least two wines at each as well as some mysterious and very potent spirits - so don't make ambitious plans for the evening! The owners were all friendly and welcoming, and in the case of the excellent dessert wine, gave an enthusiastic and very interesting talk about its production. The rustic lunch is excellent, and the woolen mill is idyllic and our young guide was superb. Very highly recommended.

  • Nice wines, friendly staff, and the train is fun. The lunch is basically bread, hard boiled eggs and bacon, which may not work well for some people, but I liked it well enough. No hard selling at any of the vinyards, which was nice.

  • A bit disappointing not much wine and lunch was poor.
