Explore the unique tastes of Korčula
Have a unique wine tasting experience of Korčula with guides Rachel and John, two passionate travelers who fell in love with Korčula and left behind their life in England to live on this beautiful Dalmatian island. With their first-hand experience, local knowledge, and passionate approach they will give you a special tour through the Lumbarda countryside, passing olive groves & local vineyards, where you will enjoy some of the island’s finest wines and traditional appetizers.
From Korčula Town we will transfer to Lumbarda, a small fishing village, situated on the eastern part of the island, which can trace its history back to the 3rd century BC. The village is built around a small bay and on the hills behind it and is surrounded by large sandy vineyards. From the centre, we will take a short walk up through the vineyards which have been cultivated by the same families for over 200 years. Two of these families run wineries we will visit.
At both wineries, we will taste a selection of wines and liquors, whilst enjoying spectacular views over the vines. This will include Croatia’s famous white wine Grk, which is only grown in this area and Plavac Mali, a fruity red wine which is related to the American Zinfandel grape. We will also taste some of their own specialties including a rose wine and a dessert wine, as well as something medicinal!
At the first winery, our tasting will be paired with a selection of traditional Dalmatian appetizers. At the second winery, we will enjoy our wine with something sweet to eat.
As you enjoy your wine, we will also tell you about wine production in Lumbarda and about the particular wines you are tasting. You will also have the opportunity to see where they make and store their wine, all the way from the crushing of grapes, to the labelling of the bottles. At the end of the tour, we will transfer back to Korčula Town.
