After traveling by coach to the heart of the region, hop aboard a mini-train and travel between the different wineries in attention-grabbing style! Meet local winemakers, sample exquisite Croatian wines and savor a wonderfully rustic peasants lunch before visiting the village of Ljuta to see a demonstration of another time-honored local craft wool making!

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 Adriatics steep sea cliffs on one side and the foothills of Snijenica 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 winerys 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 regions syrupy sweet dessert wines while learning about their defining characteristics. In one of the vineyards, a typical peasants 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 villages flour was milled in bygone days, and then watch a demonstration of another village craft wool making! Dressed in Croatias 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.
