Bosnia wine tour from Dubrovnik

Bosnia wine tour from Dubrovnik

Located less then 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 river flow, flocks of sheep and goats grazing and endless fields of vineyards will capture your imagination instantaneously.

Departing Dubrovnik we cross the border to Bosnia 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 city of Trebinje. We start by driving up to the top of Gracanica hill above Trebinje for great panoramic views of the city so that your guide can explain the geography of the area and show you all the spots that you will visit during the tour. A visit the Orthodox monastery of Gracanica standing at the top of the hill is also possible.

We drive a further 5 km away to the 15ct Orthodox monastery of Tvrdos 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 ancient cellars and taste some of their best white and red wine. Your guide will explain about the wine and the current hard working monk life-style.

After tasting monk’s wine, it is time to visit a small family owned production and winery. In recent years, a few families have become known for their dedication to wine making and their friendliness and hospitality. We will visit one of these families, where you will hear their life stories and the challenges they faced while building their small business. Sure, you’ll taste their wines paired with home made bread, cheese, and prosciutto.

Finally we move 6 kilometers (4 miles) out to the hills beyond Trebinje to village of Tuli. There we stop in a family owned restaurant serving traditional domestic Bosnian food. We will have 3 course lunch accompanied with home made wine and liqueurs.
After dinner, we drive back to Dubrovnik (around 40-60 min drive depending on border crossing) and you will be back in the hotel/apartment, just after sunset.
