From the rolling hills of Slavonia to the hilltop towns of Istria, and from the vineyards of Medjimurje to the idyllic island vineyards of Dalmatia, Croatia has an astonishing variety of wines to entice oenophiles. It is claimed that there are as many as 130 indigenous varieties in addition to the international varieties on offer, and - much like the country's cuisine - the richness of diversity all over the country is mouth-watering.
From large cooperative growers who compete on the international stage, to small producers whose innovative winemaking practices and unique grape varieties are attracting increasing international expert interest, Croatia is fast emerging as one of the most exciting wine regions on the planet.
With spectcular - and fresh, fresh, fresh - gourmet experiences to match the wines, one of the most beautiful coastlines in the world, and more than a thousand islands (including several wine-producing ones) to choose from, a well-organised wine tour of Croatia is extremely hard to beat.
Here at TCW, we will soon be introducing our complete range of wine tours to help you discover the magic of the Croatian wine story, from half-day tours to custom-made wine experiences. All tours are designed and run by our partner, Secret Dalmatia.
