Wine & Culinary Tour

To put it simply, Lake Skadar is breathtaking. Rich history, stories, and customs are ready to be discovered on this Kotor excursion. In the town of Rijeka Crnojevica, you will visit a 300 year old family house, a bee house, and enjoy a delightful homemade lunch on a scenic terrace.

Rijeka Crnojevica is known for printing the first book in the South Slavic language. This is the first destination on your Kotor excursion. Step onto picturesque wine trails and walk through a romantic settlement on the banks of a pretty river. A charming host (also a bee keeper and wine producer) awaits your arrival in a historic 300-year-old family house.

Enjoy a guided tour along the house's old vineyard, learning about indigenous Montenegro grape varieties. Visit the nearby bee yard to learn about local beliefs and traditional superstitions related to bee keeping. Afterward, taste delectable honey, noticing how various herbs impact its color, smell, and flavor.

Inside the historic 300-year-old house, honey products such as candied fruits with honey can be enjoyed. Enjoy a careful and appreciative tasting of various foods focusing on the gustatory system, senses, culinary art, and good company-known as degustation, or tasting in small portions. A lunch made of homemade products is prepared and served on a scenic terrace. Enjoy a glass of the best red wine paired with your meal.

Book this Kotor shore excursion today for a memorable wine, dine, and history adventure in beautiful scenery. This is the relaxing getaway you've been looking for!

Farm to Table experience
November 20, 2017
This excursion was wonderful. Our young guide took us through beautiful countryside and we ended at his family farm where his delightful parents showed us their property and then served us a wonderful farm to table meal. it was so much fun. The homemade wine flowed freely and a great time was had by all! If you are a wine snob and looking for a traditional winery tasting experience you probably won't enjoy this excursion but if you are looking for a traditional Montenegrin experience you will love it. it immerses you in the culture of the country

HAPPY DAY!
October 05, 2017
This was the best tour of our 15 day cruise! Vlad picked us up at the port and drove us up the coast. My husband & I were in complete awe of the beauty surrounding us We climbed up the mountains of Kotor with the car and again the beauty took our breath away. When we arrived at the Villa overlooking the vineyards we were met by two of the nicest people. There was an amazing spread of cheese, prosciutto, gibanita, the tastiest stew we've ever had!! The wine was flowing, the views were spectacular and the company was amazing. Afterwards (and by the way we did not want to leave this magical place) Vlad drove us down the coast and we stopped in a small town for Turkish coffee. He then drove us down the coast towards Budva - stunning coastal city! I cannot say enough good things about this tour and especially our incredible guide Vlad! We felt as if we were amongst family. He was extremely knowledgeable of the area & had a wonderful sense of humor. Loved this excursion and our guide!

Magic day
September 22, 2017
Words cannot describe how awesome this tour was. Zoran our guide picked us up just outside Kotors Old City walls. There were 6 of us so the tour was just for us. The scenic drive on the way to the farm house was out of this world. Zoran stopped along the way for plenty of photo opportunities. When we arrived at the farm house we were greeted by the most beautiful family. A table was set under the trees and we were made so welcome. We were served with home-made dishes from produce grown on the Farm. One of the highlights was the red wine and liquors that our host Paule had produced himself. Paules wife, son and daughter in- law made this one of the most memorable days of our holiday. We would highly recommend this tour.
