Matusko Winery

Peninsula Peljesac, the oasis of black wines, has been visited by many tourists and lovers of good drops in recent years. Walking along the Peljesac landscapes, the unavoidable destinations are the vineyards, taverns and wineries that are all connected to each other accidentally or intentionally. However, one of them is distinguished by its quality, knowledge and perseverance. From a small wine cellar visited by a small number of tourists, Winery MATUSKO in Potomja is transformed into one of the largest and most famous destination of winemakers from all over the world where Wine expert Mato Violic Matusko, presents and offers top quality autonomous wines from the Peljesac region and the Dubrovnik-Neretva County. At the winery Matusko there are currently thirteen wine labels, six of which are quality, one sparkling wine, one archive and five top wines. Visiting this winery remains an everlasting experience that will be restored again with each glass of Matusko wine.

Wine that we tasted was lovely and we bought 2 bottles. Wonderful to find there were enormous old & atmospheric cellars below. Where you could house a village. Apparently the first week in December you buy a glass and then can stay and drink as much wine as you like...

Saints Hills VINARIA

Founded in 2006, Saints Hills winery tenders & produces wines of authentic Croatian varieties. Panta rei. Everything flows. The juices flow through the fragile, resilient vines, the sand flows through the hourglass, the perennial symbol of time, the only measure that can judge vine, wine and man. As time passes, chan

This is a challenging review to put up. We were completely satisfied with our wine tour--our guide was knowledgeable and approachable, the winery and cellar were beautiful, and it was encouraging to see a progressive spectrum of the Croatian wine industry. That said, the wine pairing dinner left us demanding for more. For USD100 per person, we think it's an absolutely fair price to ask for in terms of quantity (we were fed sufficiently and the wine glasses were refilled upon request), but the quality was just not quite there yet.
Given that we were both extensively experienced in high-level dining, only two dishes out of six appealed to us. The wines were extremely refined, structured, and well done, but again it left a lot more to be imagined. Having tasted quite many of Michel Rolland's impressive results, the wines from Saints Hills exhibit potential but clearly haven't found their own terroir expression.
Final thought is: visit this place for the sake of checking off something on your to-do list, but if you are looking for one of the best wines of Croatia, we're being completely presumptuous but confident that as of 2016, Saints Hills is not quite there yet. That said, we will visit again whenever we come back in the near future. This is a place that shows high potential and top-notch facilities to make good wines. To top it all off, all the staff we met at the wineries were amazingly helpful and welcoming.

Winery Bezek

A winery with a long tradition of producing native Dalmatian grape varieties, Plavac Mali and rukatac, from which we get high quality wines. We also produce 8 types of spirits and liqueurs, which you can taste in our winery. We find ourselves on the Peljesac peninsula in Janjina at janjina 65. Visit us because life is too short to drink bad wine.

I loved coming here, it is a beautiful winery. Definitely a must see when visiting Janjina. The sour cherry liqueur and mirta liqueur were my favorites, I would definitely recommend it! Also, the girl working there was very nice, talking to her was such a pleasure, and she was the prettiest girl I had see during my visit in Croatia.

This place is great. It has a selection of fantastic wines they produce which you can taste upon request. It's run by a couple of knowledgeable, friendly, and beautiful women. The unique part is the place is maritime themed. They produce a couple of wines which are stored and aged under the sea for up to two years - an interesting process that is fun to learn about. You can purchase bottles that have been through the aging process and have the marine life remnants (like shells) attached to the bottle now. Not only is the wine great to drink, but you can display the bottle well after consumption and have an everlasting conversation piece.

Korta Katarina Winery

Reviewed By StephenSarah123 - Fort Collins, Colorado

We love French and Italian wines, but knew next to nothing about Croatian wines. Anna at Korta Katharina was so nice and helpful in sharing information about the different Croatian grapes, where they grow best, and how they match up with the food if the area. Anna also provided us with literature about Croatian grapes. We loved the crisp, dry refreshing taste of their Zinfandel/Plavic Mali blended Rosé. And their red blend (2011 or 2013 I don't remember) was another delight for us. Nice blackberry and fig fruit with a touch of vanilla, very nice! Having grown up as children in Minnesota, it was fun to learn that the owners, Lee and Penny Anderson, were business people from this wonderful state. This was a great place to visit and easy walk from Orebic.

We visited Vino Spaleta whilst on holiday in Dubrovnik. Situated in the beautiful village of Kuna, it is just under a 2 hour drive from Dubrovnik and definitely worth a visit! We had been to two other more famous wineries in the Peljesac peninsula beforehand and found that Vino Spaleta were the friendliest and most welcoming.
We opted for the cheese and wine tasting which included 3 wines and a brandy tasting. All were of excellent quality and by far the best prices we had seen all day. The owners of the winery themselves were very friendly and sat with us during the tasting, explaining the process and even their family history - which is extremely impressive. We were welcome to stay as long as we liked and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. We consider it one of the highlights of our holiday and would definitely recommend a visit!
