Croatia has two primary wine regions, Primorska Hrvatska (“Coastal Croatia”) and Kontinentalna Hrvatska (“Continental Croatia”). The wineries in these regions spread northeast from the shores of the Dalmation Coast to the floodplains of the Danube River. One of the best ways to experience these regions is by sea and land.
Croatia is a nation of islands, more than a thousand islands to be exact, full of keys and peninsulas that dot the waters along the Adriatic River. On a clear day they say you can see the Italian coast across the Adriatic.
Its as rich in wine as it is in topography and beauty, in fact, California’s beloved zinfandel grape was discovered in Croatia. As with our land tour, we would also like to introduce wine lovers to this new wine frontier from a different perspective, by sea, as we guide you on this exciting coastal adventure with many winery visits blended with cultural and culinary experiences.
In addition to winery visits, sightseeing and stops at breathtaking swim spots in the Adriatic along the way, the Wine Lovers Croatia Cruise will dock overnight in Dubrovnik, Korčula, Hvar, Split and more. These yacht-like ships are really a great ways to experience the towns and wineries along the Croatian coast. Your 7-night cruise includes a deluxe cabin with en-suite bathroom, breakfast daily and 13 meals (lunches & dinners), complimentary wi-fi, jacuzzi-equipped sun deck, city tours, admission to historic sites and of course private wine tastings to some of the best wineries in the coastal region. Our expert guide will be traveling with you from throughout the cruise as well as the winery visits and city tours.
