Our Harvest Tour is a one of a kind opportunity to sit down and talk with the generous and hospitable owners, wine makers and local producers in their cellars, houses, restaurants, shops and mills. A special invitation into peoples’ place of work & passion that focuses on the history, wine making traditions and culinary magic of these countries.
Over the past fifteen years of running small group tours to Slovenia and Croatia, guests routinely told him how undersold the food and wine was. So he decided to create a tour to showcase the best food, wine and culinary traditions while making sure guests get personally introduced to all this deliciousness by those that create them in their cellars, vineyards and kitchens. And there’s no better time of year to immerse in this culinary utopia than the harvest season. Most of the tourists have gone home, the leaves are turning color, vineyards are being harvested and the smell of wood stoves and heavenly aromas float through the cool air. This unique tour features a variety of home-cooked dinners, a few very special five-course meals, strolls in the beautiful wine country, ten wine tastings and an array of other tastings including honey, olive oil, jams, fruits and truffles.
Nearly two weeks of stimulating your taste buds can be a bit much. That’s why we’re leaving time for curious guests to back away from the kitchen table and go explore castles, stroll through old Venetian towns, discover colorful frescoes in tiny churches and make a personal connection between the food, the land and its people. Like with our other tours, a maximum group size of ten guests lends itself to a more intimate travel experience served up with a genuine, personal touch.
