Island Hopping Croatia Culinary Tour


Split is Croatia’s 2nd largest city in Dalmatia and is equally as beautiful in its own right. Its one of the only cities in the world where the old town is actually inside an ancient palace called Diocletian. The great location of our hotel makes it easy to stroll around the ancient city or relax at the Riva, Split’s boardwalk.

Split also resides very close to some amazing wineries. We will visit to one of my favorite vineyards for its fruity rose and intense reds. Its called Babe [pronounced bah-bay] and is the most picturesque in Croatia. The winemaker will give us a tour of his hilltop vineyard and a wonderful tasting. Then there are  let’s hit several other winemakers in the region, Bibich and Sladić. These producers make some fantastic local varietals in both red and white. Bibich is considered one of the best winemakers in Croatia. After Bibich, we will visit another special winemaker called Sladić, where they are going to prepare a special wine tasting accompanied with delights from their garden. Expect to buy a several bottles.


The region of Imotski is one of the highlights of the trip. This town is on the edge of the border with Bosnia border and is famous for its blue and red lakes and is virtually free of tourism, which makes for a unique experience. It also boosts a spectacular winery, one of the tours favorites where we can attest to buying over 35 bottles on our  last group trip.

We are staying in a restored Croatian farm village high in the hills around the town and will dine on a traditional dish called peka. The property is quiet and gorgeous and will provide some much needed down time.


For a taste of a little island life, we are taking the ferry to Korčula. Korčula is one of Croatia’s most treasured islands although, perhaps somewhat surprisingly, not quite as popular. The locals event refer to the main town as “Little Dubrovnik” because of its medieval squares, churches, palaces and houses.

We are here to explore its old town and have a wine lunch of pošip, a delicious white wine famous in this region.

Pelejšac & Ston

Pelejšac is referred to as the ‘empire of wine‘ with acres and acres of vineyards along its 35 mile peninsula. Pelejšac is known for its high quality red wines and arguably the best called dingač. We have many planned wine stops here and will be spending 2 nights in the town of Orebić.

On the eastern edge of Pelejšac is the beautiful walled city of  Ston. Ston is the gateway to this wine region and well known for its cultivated salt. It is also where we are going on a private boat trip to learn how locals harvest oysters and mussels with plenty of samples and wine along the way.


Dubrovnik is considered to be one of the most beautiful cities in Croatia and ask anyone who has been there, it’s possibly one of the most beautiful in the world. That’s why millions visit this city each year alone. The old city is classified as a UNESCO World Heritage city and it won’t take you long to see why. We have a couple days to soak it all in and are staying in Lapad, a charming neighborhood with its own beach.

Dubrovnik has lots to offer the visitor from a walk around its defensive walls to a cable car to the hills above it. We have planned a culinary tour in the old city to welcome you to a long standing love affair with seafood.
