Indulge in the finest oysters and wine experience from Dubrovnik - an unforgettable journey for your taste buds
Not many visitors to Dubrovnik are aware of the hidden gem nestled in its vicinity - an area renowned for its exceptional seafood and wine. Leading my guests on this delightful culinary journey is always a pleasure. While your primary motivation for visiting Croatia may not revolve around wine, you will undoubtedly remember the country for its lingering wine flavors. And then, there are the oysters. For the aficionados of this delicious shellfish, indulging in the oysters from Mali Ston Bay, as recommended here, might pose a challenge. I've witnessed countless individuals declare these as the finest oysters they've ever savored, making it arduous to appreciate any others thereafter.
Dubrovnik's restaurants proudly feature oysters from Mali Ston Bay on their menus, presenting them in a myriad of culinary creations. Yet, nothing surpasses the simple pleasure of savoring raw oysters, freshly plucked from the sea, adorned with a few drops of zesty lemon, and complemented by a glass of homemade white wine.
Mali ston Bay is located at the commencement of the Peljesac Peninsula. The picturesque slopes of the peninsula are adorned with numerous vineyards.
Here, the indigenous grape variety, Plavac Mali, reigns supreme.
Viticulture has been the cornerstone of Peljesac's life for centuries, but it's only now that the world is properly introduced to this wine-growing paradise. The region's tumultuous history had a significant impact on this vital activity.
Along the peninsula, many wineries await exploration with every winegrower weaving their unique philosophy into their wines. Despite its relatively small size, the region boasts surprising diversity, resulting in a rich selection of wines mostly from the singular grape variety, Plavac Mali.
Our journey of the senses inevitably leads us to the Milos Winery, a bedrock of excellence on this peninsula and a standout in the broader Croatian winemaking landscape. Here, the Plavac Mali grape assumes a central role, orchestrating the creation of an exquisite array of red wines that exemplify the pinnacle of winemaking artistry.
