Hoist the sails! Best 8 days of Croatian coast with delicious food experience

For years we were convincing our sailing guests that part of the sailing among Croatian islands is also about local food and wine and after great feedback we decided to dedicate one sailing tour to gastronomy. The main feature of Croatian gastronomy is its diversity, but in Dalmatia where we will sail Mediterranean style with local twists is the thing.Our culinary sailing tour goes even further and will not only give you a chance to try fresh sea food


Goodbye land, welcome sea!

Dalmatian liquors and a selection of homemade cheese & marinated fish After picking you up in your hotel or at the airport we will sail to a close by island Šolta, to a small town of Stomorska where we will stay overnight. A short distance from Stomorska lies Kaštelanac, a charming, family-run farm and vineyard and this is where we will start our unforgettable gastro week. The winery offers renowned rosé and red wine; both derived from the Dobričić grape. Kaštelanac also produces different high quality olive oils, traditional Dalmatian liquors and a selection of homemade cheeses, marinated fish, pates and other local delicacies that we will have a chance to taste before the dinner.

Land of olives and wine

From Šolta we will sail to island of Brač, to the famous town Bol. After a day at sea with all the summer fu we will take short transfer to a charming restaurant located in olive orchard. Here we will enjoy olive oil tasting. You will have an opportunity to learn about traditional olive oil production, new techniques and differences in the taste and quality. After olives and olive oil we will proceed to stone gallery of one of the most respectable stone artists in the country. Stone sculptures, architectural elements and other pieces are sure to amaze you with their beauty, but also with craftsmanship and skill that is needed to create art from solid stone. After the visit to the gallery we will take a short enjoyable walk to the restaurant famous for its locally grown lamb meat where we will taste lamb specialties that are in season at the moment.

Decanter’s Golden Medal Wine

From Stari Grad we continue our sailing gastro tour to Sv. Nedilja further south on island Hvar, where we will visit one of Plenković cellars.

Vis sea food cousine

After Hvar, it is time to sail South to unique island of Vis. Like the whole area, Vis island is no exception when good food and wine is concerned. The cellars and restaurants have a wonderful aroma that can’t be found anywhere else. Besides the sea’s special allure, the trend of the times is to go to the heart of the island to discover the authentic Vis cuisine. Some will be enchanted by the fields of green vineyards. Others will linger in the kitchens of the old stone houses, rustically appealing, to observe a different style of cooking, lovingly prepared since our ancestors’ time. Sardines barbecued on the spit, fish flavorfully prepared in traditional Dalmatian style brudet, succulent grilled lamb, salted fish`s pie of tomatoes and sardines, and delicious and healthy salads made with fresh garden greens and seafood delights. We will take to a gastro-sightseeing of the island. A tour where you can try all the culinary specialties the Vis island is famous for. Read more

The trip was excellent and we all had a fabulous time. The Sport Hotel was a perfect venue and the hike to Lipanca and then on to Mrežce was fantastic. This venue was also great because of the recreation room that it has. We found Grand Cuvee Tours company to be very helpful and very professional. I will definitely recommend Grand Cuvee Tours.
