Wine Tour of Pelješac

The ultimate wine tour from Dubrovnik!

Secret Dalmatia's Peljesac Wine Tour takes you to the beautiful Pelješac peninsula. A breathtakingly scenic 45 minute drive from Dubrovnik, this picturesque area is home to some of the most intriguing red wines in Europe. Hosted by Mario Bartulović, a renowned Croatian wine-maker, this is a superb opportunity to learn about the country and its traditions, especially the art of winemaking, from a true local. The tour is a trio of wine-tastings at Croatia's most respected wine cellars, visits to vineyards on the slopes of this magnificent peninsula and a delicious, traditional Dalmatian lunch at your host's family winery.
Our first experience on Peljesac is the Miloš winery, home of the charismatic poet/wine maker Frano Miloš. Here you will have a chance to taste his red Miloš plavac or his, now legendary, Stagnum, also a red, made of 100% Plavac Mali grapes. The visit to Miloš winery is the ultimate introduction to Peljesac.
Next, we visit the Grgic winery in Trstenik. Miljenko Grgich studied wine-making in Zagreb. After migrating to the US, with only $20 in his pocket, he founded the famous Grgich Hills winery in Napa Valley but not before he made a name for himself being part of Chateau Montelena success story in the 70s! At the Grgic cellars, on top of hills overlooking the charming Trstenik harbour, you will taste their famous white Posip and their red Plavac Mali Dingac.
Our final sojourn will be to the 500-year-old wine cellar of Bartulović family, of your host Mario. By this time, it will feel like visiting a friend's house. Here you will enjoy a wine-tasting and a superb traditional Croatian luncheon, accompanied by their great wines!
Please note that this is much more than a wine tour. This is a cultural program with wine as the main theme but this program offers a great insight into local life and traditions of this unique region. You can choose to further custom-tailor your program, including an oyster tasting in Ston or other wineries in the region.
Our Secret Dalmatia's Pelješac Wine Tour with Mario Bartulović is known for exceeding expectations and is one of our most requested programs! Only 30 departures per year are available so please book soon to avoid disappointment.
Suggestion: Experience this tour in a wine & bike combo cycling through the beautiful Peljesac peninsula landscape!

Dingač

Dingač is a wine growing region on the Pelješac Peninsula, possibly the best wine growing region in Croatia. Established in 1961, this small area between the villages of Trstenik and Podobuče was the first protected Croatian wine region and is known for the native Croatian red wine grape, Plavac Mali.
Like the neighboring Postup region, the land is rugged karst with little top soil. In addition to 2800 sun hours annually, 45 - 55 degree slopes make Dingač an ideal red wines region. Vineyards are planted from sea level up to 300 m and all the wines derived from this area are eligible for a "stamp of geographic origin", meaning they meet a series of strict requirements.
Notable producers of Dingač region wines include: Miloš, Grgich, Korta Katarina, Vinarija Dingač, Bura-Mokalo, Kiridžija...
