Tastes of Zagreb's countryside: Full-day wine tour with traditional lunch

  • City: Zagreb
  • Duration: Service Duration: Approximately 8-9 hours in length.

Overview

Wine routes around Zagreb offer an excellent opportunity to visit the vineyards, sample different wines and enjoy the beautiful countryside. Choose between two different regions to explore the wines and delicacies of central Croatia

Moslavina Wine Tour Moslavina is a region southeast of Zagreb, full of picturesque villages, family farms and amazing wildlife. In local vineyards, everything revolves around the native grape variety called Skrlet, which results in a light, crisp, dry white wine with floral aromas. There are also the usual continental varieties typical of central Croatia: Grasevina, Chardonnay, Pinot blanc, Furmint, Muscat, Pinot noir and Blaufraenkisch.

This tour includes a scenic drive from Zagreb to two different family-owned wineries with a tasting of at least four wines in each. You will meet with the winemaker who will focus on the indigenous white wine variety, Skrlet. The tasting is followed by a traditional, three-course lunch in a local farmstead restaurant with homemade food, wine, brandies and organic produce.

Plesivica Wine Tour Only 19 miles southwest of Zagreb, on the gentle slopes of the Samobor mountain range, is the small but premium wine region of Plesivica. The town of Jastrebarsko is surrounded by dozens of family wineries that grow mostly white grapes for Grasevina, Chardonnay, Pinot blanc, Rhine Riesling, Sauvignon and Gewurztraminer, as well as for Croatia’s answer to Beaujolais – Portugizec – a young red wine.

Thanks to its continental climate with plenty of sun, Plesivica also produces premium sparkling wines, as well as a delightful Pinot noir and has undertaken successful experiments with aging wine in terracotta amphorae.

This tour includes a scenic drive from Zagreb to different family-owned wineries with a tasting of at least four wines in each and a meeting with the winemaker. Wineries are chosen according to the clients’ interests and preferences, but also based on availability.

After the insightful tasting of typical, local wines – premium sparkling wines, Pinot noir, Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinot gris and orange wines – a traditional, three-course lunch in a local restaurant follows.
