Zagreb Wine Tour – Visit Plešivica - Croatia's Champagne
A day trip
Enjoy your day far from the city’s bustle and hustle. If you are a wine lover, this tour is for you!
Savor the wines produced in “Croatia’s Champagne” region and enjoy the countryside, at the doorsteps of Zagreb. You will be visiting 2 winemakers and tasting app. 12 different wines. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir (“Pinot Crni” in Croatian) thrive here; both varieties are used for making sparkling wine and still wine. Other notable wine grapes include Muškat Žuti
(Yellow Muscat), Plavec Žuti, Portugizec (Blauer Portugieser), Rizling (Riesling), Rizvanac (Müller-Thurgau), Sauvignon Blanc, and Syrah.
While Plešivica may seem small in geographical and production size, it is arguably the most exciting and ‘experimental’ wine region in the country. When in Plešivica, you can enjoy wine made in amphora, orange wine made in oxidative style, sparkling wine made in the traditional method and aged for four years on the lees, Pinot Noir redolent of Santa Maria Valley (California) quality, and cool-climate Syrah.

T&T travel boutique (Tihana) has organized a sailing boat trip for me and my five friends last June. The boat was great, skipper she found was the best we ever had (we sailed quite a few times in the past) and the itinerary she put together was excellent. Tihana was extremely helpful all the way through and we had an awesome trip! Needless to say, we shall go again with her agency!
We recently were introduced to T&T Travel when we found ourselves in Croatia for a three week vacation with no travel plans. They quickly responded to our inquiries, met with us in Zagreb on very short notice, and crafted a travel itinerary with hotel reservations and tour suggestions. In hindsight, it was a perfect experience and T&T deserves all the credit for helping us understand and appreciate Croatia.
