Wine tasting and gastronomy in Croatia
In Vino Veritas, or ‘the truth is in the wine‘ is certainly one of the best sayings when we talk about excellent Croatian wines.
No matter what type of wine you like or whether it is white or red, Croatia can boast of quality. Red, or like we say in Croatian, ‘a black‘ wine like the famous Plavac mali from Pelješac or the Plančić’s, Tomčev’s or Plenković’s excellent wines. Southern Dalmatian grapes enjoy a lot of sunny days. The vineyards exposed to the salty air and reflection of the sea give the wine fantastic quality and taste. You have to try Croatian wines – like Dingač from Matuško. That is why wine tours are so prevalent in Croatia. The production of Croatian winemakers is tiny, and the wines are excellent. It is almost impossible to find them in stores, except those specializing in selling wine, award-winning olive oils, cheeses, and other delicacies such as many truffle products.
Our guests very often buy many Croatian delicacies and bring Croatia’s flavors into their homes as souvenirs that they proudly give to their friends to taste. Croatia abounds in flavors that vary depending on the regions you visit. Istria produces some of the world’s best olive oils that you MUST taste. But don’t leave Istria without tasting the dishes prepared with truffles or the fantastic, airy, floral, and aromatic queen of Croatian white wines – Malvasia. If you are more inclined to different tastes, then there is Traminnac from Ilok. Slavonia will treat you to various types of brandy and unique fish stew or Slavonian Kulen, sausages … and bacon.
Croatian gastronomy goes well with Croatian wines, so let us show you the Croatian cuisine’s best possible flavors.
Due to the influence of all nearby ‘cuisines’, whether Italian or Hungarian, Turkish or Austrian – Croatian gastronomy has developed into a different and distinctive in its unique flavors. We take you to wine and gastro destinations.
