Croatian Wine Tours

By 1800FlyEurope in Destination Highlights | on April 9th, 2010

Are you a lover of fine wine? If so, a great idea for your next vacation is a Croatian wine tour!  Catch a cheap flight to Zagreb or Dubrovnik and let the tasting begin!

Croatian vineyards have a history dating back to the 5th century B.C. when wine production grew under the Roman Empire. As the Croatians began to settle and take on the knowledge passed down to them from their ancestors, production increased significantly. A great number of the vineyards were destroyed during the Croatian War of Independence in the 1990s; however in the years since, wine production has bounced back successfully.

Currently, there are approximately 300 wineries in the country, produced in two different regions: The Coastal Region (along the Dalmatian Coast) and the Continental Region.

Touring the wineries of Croatia will introduce you to even more wines such as Teran, Malvazija and Muscat Ottonel and more. Whether you travel to the countryside to visit a continental winery or to the Dalmatian Coast to the coastal wineries or rent a car and do both, this is a great way to make your trip to Croatia memorable and unique.
