This tour takes us in two of the most charismatic and respected winemakers in Bosnia&Herzegovina, both based in the picturesque wine country of Mostar. Family Čorić in his sensational wine tasting cellars Andrija, which are based on the rocky desert-like plateau, and his exceptional use of indigenous grapes as well as international varieties is a wonderful journey of discovery. Much smaller in production, but far more experimental with his unique organic wines made from indigenous grapes from Herzegovina, Josip Brkić candlelit tasting experience in his family wine cellar could not be more intimate. Add to that a selection of his excellent flavoured olive oils, and here is the perfect introduction to the fruits of Herzegovina, expertly handled.  We have carefully created this tour to showcase the incredible beauty of the Mostar area and to introduce you to the best eats and drinks that the Herzegovina has to offer.

Stop At:

Our journey to the wine country of Čitluk from the picture-postcard valley of Neretva river takes us up winding hill roads. The view below of a patchwork of bright green vineyards is truly breathtaking. Andrija wine cellar is situated at the very heart of this hilly region. The high quality Andrija wines are the result of natural blessings like its sunny slopes, karst soil structure, famous bora and jugo winds and favorable Mediterranean climate. Here we will visit the house of the rural tourism and winery Andrija Paoča, where we have an opportunity to learn about history of wine growing in this area, and taste the wine and local food ( homemade young cheese “Škripavac”, homemade bread, smoked ham etc) The best place for wine to show its power is in a winery or a cellar, where you enjoy immensely and learn a lot.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: Wine cellar Brkic

Then we will pass on to the Brkić wine cellar in the town of Čitluk. Josip Brkić is still the only organic winemaker in Bosnia Herzegovina. Using biodynamic practices and indigenous grapes, he’s making very pure and effusive wines and Mjesečar, a skin-fermented white wine made from 100% Žilavka, is exceptional. Mjesečar means the Moon Walker in Bosnian and it is Josip’s first wine made in a complete organic way. All the farming and winemaking work is done according to the phases of the Moon as you can see on the wine’s label. Sitting around the table, drinking wine and eating famous Livno sheep cheese, local high quality olive oil, fig jam and homemade prosciutto with the Brkić family, you feel like you’ve been invited into a family member’s home for a pleasant getaway. For Josip, producing a new wine is like giving birth to a new life. The wine is magical.
