Introducing Dom, your knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide to the culinary treasures of the Dubrovnik region. With a Master’s degree in viticulture and enology under his belt, Dom is currently pursuing his PhD, conducting research on the area’s unique wine varieties. His passion for local gastronomy doesn’t end with wine, as Dom is also a licensed olive oil sommelier with a keen interest in the field.
Croatia is home to over 100 indigenous grape varieties, many of which boast exceptional quality and have earned accolades in major global competitions. In the Dubrovnik region, four wine varieties stand out, all of which you’ll have the pleasure of tasting during our tour. Dom is excited to share his knowledge and passion for his hometown through his academic pursuits.
Join Dom for a captivating three-hour culinary journey through the historical and gastronomical wonders of Dubrovnik, the Pearl of the Adriatic. As you meander through the town’s enchanting alleys, nestled between ancient palaces and breathtaking gardens, you’ll immerse yourself in its rich history.
Our tour includes four stops at family-owned establishments, where you’ll delight in two olive oil tastings, four exquisite wines paired with four gourmet dishes (no finger foods here!), and a delectable dessert. These venues proudly collaborate with local producers, sourcing their ingredients from the region’s native offerings.
Though Croatia and Dubrovnik’s enological and gastronomic products have gained worldwide recognition for their quality, limited production can sometimes keep them hidden from visitors. In 2021 alone, Croatia garnered three platinum awards, two of which were bestowed upon the Dubrovnik region, at the prestigious Decanter in London. That same year, Croatia ranked third globally in gold medals at the NYIOOC, a highly esteemed olive oil competition. Our tour provides you the opportunity to savor these award-winning grape and olive varieties.
This tour is a must for those passionate about eno-gastronomy and eager to broaden their horizons! Experience the essence of the Mediterranean as you savor the finest flavors of the region, all within the magnificent walls of Dubrovnik, guided by Dom’s expertise.
