Located less than 35 km from Dubrovnik (22 miles) Trebinje area in Bosnia and Hercegovina is a world of its own, completely different than the coastal area of Dubrovnik Riviera. Limestone hills, small fertile pockets of land following the Trebišnjica river flow, flocks of sheep and goats grazing, and colorful patches of vineyards will capture your imagination instantaneously.

Departing Dubrovnik we cross the Bosnian border in 20 min time, and after a short drive overlooking the islands in front of Dubrovnik and through the Friar’s Field, we reach the town of Trebinje. We start by driving up to the top of Gracanica hill above Trebinje for great panoramic views of the city. Here, our guide can explain you the geography of the area and show you all the spots that you will visit during the tour. A visit to the Orthodox church of Holy Annunciation standing at the top of the hill is also possible.

The tour continues with a 5 km drive to the 15.ct Orthodox monastery of Tvrdos (with remains from 4. ct. AD)  where monks have been producing wine for centuries until they blew up the monastery when it was about to be taken over by the Ottomans in 18ct. We will visit their monastery church and ancient cellars and taste some of their best white and red wine. Your guide will explain to you about the wines and the current hard-working monk lifestyle.

After tasting monks’ wine, we will drive down to the center of Trebinje town, where you will take you a short historical walk through its Austrian (19ct) and Turkish (18ct) Trebinje centers. We will stop in the heart of the fortified Turkish Old Town in a small restaurant by the flowing waters of Trebišnjica river where we will taste their cheese with walnuts/kaymak cheese, homemade prosciutto, and fried dough balls, paired with their home-brewed beer or local wines (Zilavka, Vranac, Rose) overlooking ducks and geese swimming by.

Ultimately we will get back in the vehicle and drive 8 kilometers (5 miles) out to the hills beyond Trebinje to the village of Tuli. There we stop at a family-owned restaurant serving traditional domestic Bosnian food. We will have 2-course lunch accompanied by homemade wine or grappa. Lunch will include a selection of their locally grown meat (lamb or veal), fish (trout), or vegetarian dish, and one of their delicious desserts (homemade apple pie or Turkish baklava). Lunch will be paired with family-homemade white or red wine or locally produced (bottled) beer and homemade grappa or Turkish coffee at the end!

After dinner, we drive back to Dubrovnik (around a 40-60 min drive depending on the border crossing) and you will be back in the hotel/apartment, just around sunset.

Day trip of wine tasting to Bosnia Herzegovina with Goran

Goran, our guide was waiting for us at the cruise port. We headed across the Croatian border to spend the day tasting wine and local food in Bosnia Herzegovina.

Great day in a wine country
