Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

What you will visit:
Local Vineyards
Learn the history of Konavle Valley grape cultivation, with climactic and geological conditions ripe for winemaking and the age-old traditions that local winemaking experts use to produce exceptional vino. Your vehicle will wend its way through the rural landscape to a series of charming vineyards nestled among olive orchards and citrus groves, each offering their own unique practices and varietals. Meet the local winemakers, learn how they produce and bottle their wines, and discover the chief characteristics of these southern Dalmatian nectars. Sample the best whites, reds and fruity dessert wines.
Ljuta
The seaside town of Ljuta is situated in the heart of the Boka Bay region. The mill system was extremely important for the economy of Konavle, and here, visitors are introduced to a fully restored, authentic mill and the fascinating process of milling corn using the incredible force of water to set a huge millstone into motion. Additional cultural exhibits include a wool-making demonstration, performed by natives in heritage garb.
What you will see along the way:
Gazing out of both the motorcoach and the mini-train is a feast for the eye. Take in the graceful foothills of Sniježnica Mountain as you travel to Brajkovici village, hugging the southern Dalmatian coast, along the rustic Konavle Valley, with pretty vineyard views.
Snack:
Enjoy several wine tastings and a ploughmans lunch of smoked bacon and onions, just as the locals eat while working in the fields.
