Skradin is magical, nestling beneath the beautiful waterfalls at the mouth of the Krka River where it meets the sea. For more than 2,000 years it has entranced all who love beauty, music, nature and glorious wine and food. More than 75 years ago a local vintage Bedrica won the grand prix award in Toulouse, France, and was declared one of the six best wines in the world!
Complementing the outstanding viniculture are numerous authentic and original dishes. Unique Skradin risotto definitely stands out as a labor of love, taking over 12 hours to prepare as shown on Anthony Bourdain's World famous show No Reservations: Croatia.
Our tour takes you for a wine-tasting and gourmet dinner served in the cellars of the Bibic Winery, a signature event for lovers of fine wine and food in Croatia. The vineyards are located in the rolling hills above historic Skradin and Krka National Park in the bucolic village of Plastovo. Among the most celebrated in the country, most of Bibic's limited production is sold only in very select shops and served in the finest restaurants- the rest is exported to US and Europe. In addition to their award-winning whites and reds, Bibic also produces exceptional brandies.
Alen Bibic and his wife Vesna deliver a world class tasting and wine pairings that have been compared to the best Michelin star experiences around the world! Each dish is visually stunning and divinely delectable - individually prepared and served with a wine chosen personally by Alen. Depending on the season, you'll enjoy tender home-raised veal, free range ducks, pheasant and other poultry together with a medley of organically grown vegetables and herbs from their extensive gardens. All depending on season and their inspiration! After this flavourful experience, you can browse the Bibic Winery shop, and not only for their finest wines but also for the Bibic cold pressed olive oil and other Dalmatian delicacies.
OPTIONAL EXTRA: This program can be combined with a tour of Sibenik and its UNESCO World Heritage cathedral or with Skradin and Krka National Park tour.
