John & Rachael's choice of Korcula Island's best tours, accommodation & transfers
Take a drive with us to Smokvica, the beautiful hillside village where one of Croatia’s most famous wine varieties, Posip, made its name. It is is here that the vine was first discovered and continues to be grown in generation old vineyards.
Upon reaching Smokvica (just 30 minutes from Korcula) we will first take a scenic drive along the Posip path and through the carefully cultivated vineyards. In between the vineyards we pass olive trees, historical buildings and the memorial to the farmer who discovered Posip. The village then comes back into view, where we will head to visit two of its wine producers and discover a host of local wines.
We will be welcomed by a young winemaker who has followed in his father’s and grand-father’s footsteps, into his small but well stocked winery. Our host will guide us through a selection of wines with a few snacks and interesting stories to accompany the tasting. Here we will also learn more about wine production in the area.
Next up, we move on to another winery, fronted by another of the young winemakers from the island. Our wine tasting continues, starting with the only sparkling wine produced on the island, followed by their local Posip and two other varietal. We will also be served a selection of delicious appetisers. Filled with good food and wine, we will return to Korcula Town.
