Croatian small but premium wine region of Plešivica lies 30 km southwest from Zagreb, on the gentle slopes of Samobor mountain range. Around the town of Jastrebarsko, there are dozens of family wineries, growing mostly white varieties like Graševina, Chardonnay, Pinot blanc, Rhine Riesling, Sauvignon, Gewurztraminer, as well as Croatia’s answer to Beaujolais – Portugizec young red wine. Thanks to continental climate but plenty of sun, Plešivica is also the home of premium sparkling wines, but there's even more - successful experiments with amphorae and delightful Pinot noir. It is definitely one of the most important spots on Croatian wine map.

We will visit two excellent and quite different winemakers and taste the best local wines. You'll also have a slice of Plešivica cuisine at a top-quality family restaurant with a breathtaking view of surrounding hills and vineyards.
