What You Can Expect

Konavle Valley Wine Tour from Dubrovnik with Train Ride

Watch a craft demonstration in Ljuta

Say 'dovidjenja,' or 'goodbye,' to Dubrovnik as the comfortable coach snakes its way down the southern Dalmatian coast with the priceless Adriatic views to your right, to the rustic Konavle Valley, about 20 miles (30 km) south of the city. 

Located at the southernmost tip of Croatia, near the border of Montenegro, Konavle Valley is flanked by the Adriatic Sea and the foothills of Sniježnica Mountain. The valley boasts ample amounts of vineyards, as the climactic and geological conditions are ripe for winemaking. 

Stop in the village of Brajkovici to visit a family-run wine cellar. Learn about grape cultivation in the area, as well as, about the age-old knowledge that local winemaking experts use to produce excellent vino. 

Listen to your guide tell the history of the area, as you voyage from charming village to village, passing by olive orchards and citrus groves as your vehicle winds its way through the rural landscape. 

Visit a few different wineries and meet the local winemakers, hearing about how the produce wine and learning about the chief characteristics of southern Dalmatian wine. Sample the best reds and whites on offer and don’t skip on the sweet dessert wines. At one vineyard, indulge in a typical ‘peasant’s lunch,’ that will be certain to soak up some of that wine in your stomach. Feast on eggs, cheese, bacon and bread and be sure to save some room for a slice of traditional cake served at the last stop. 

Get back on the wine ‘train’ for the final stop: the coastal village of Ljuta, where you’ll stop by an ancient flour mill and watch a wool-making demonstration, performed by locals in historical garb. 

After, hop back on the coach for the short ride back to Dubrovnik, returning to the ‘Pearl of the Adriatic’ in the early evening.

The wine tour was very enjoyable and exceeded expectations. The tour guides were very pleasant and handled those who spoke English as well as those speaking German.

This was brilliant value, and one of the highlights of our stay in Dubrovnik. We visited five vineyards, from very small (two and a half acres) to large commercial operations, and were offered at least two wines at each as well as some mysterious and very potent spirits - so don't make ambitious plans for the evening! The owners were all friendly and welcoming, and in the case of the excellent dessert wine, gave an enthusiastic and very interesting talk about its production. The rustic lunch is excellent, and the woolen mill is idyllic and our young guide was superb. Very highly recommended.

Tour was great fun. Enjoyed the experience, the owners of the vineyards were not at all pushy in trying to sell produce. It has been a long time since I rode a kiddy train ride - great fun

Nice wines, friendly staff, and the train is fun. The lunch is basically bread, hard boiled eggs and bacon, which may not work well for some people, but I liked it well enough. No hard selling at any of the vinyards, which was nice.

This wine tour was a very enjoyable and well organised trip. We had the opportunity to visit 5 different vineyards and meet the families running them. Lots of delicious wine and foods were available to try. The train ride was fun as well and there was some beautiful scenery to enjoy.This trip was excellent value for money.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this July 2015

poorly organized. bad guides. tour in both German and English took lots of time. Too many people, not everyone got a seat at the stops. stop at mill was irrelevant. lunch turned out to be bread and boiled egg.
should have had water on the bus, old people were suffering. no cellars. very little wine.
