    What to Expect
    We will start by driving to the Peljesac peninsula, circa 1h drive from Dubrovnik. The first stop is a small, family-owned oyster farm where you will have the opportunity to taste some of the best oysters in the world! Also, our first wine tasting will be there with an introduction to wine tasting by WSET with basic food and wine matching principles (to get you fully prepared for more wines and food). Next, you will see the medieval historic town of Ston, famous for the second longest protective wall in the world (after Chinese Wall) and oldest salt factory of that kind in the world! After that, you will visit 3 great wineries, meet very interesting winemakers who are making world class wines and have master class tastings with some of them. You will also taste some local olive oils of great quality too and see some spectacular scenery during the day.

    During the day you will learn how wine is made, different styles of wine produced today, factors which influence quality and prices of wines, sparkling wines and champagne style wines and lot more.

    Later in the afternoon you will be treated with a three-course lunch(not included in price-additional 30 e cost) in a superb family run restaurant (of course with wine). You will visit Dingac vineyard, the best vineyard in all of Croatia and can be known as one of the most spectacular vineyards in the world!

    Don't go. He rips people off. I cancelled a day before and he threatened me that if I didn't pay the full amount, he would get the police to come visit me at my Airbnb and he would give them my phone number.
