Overview

Croatia’s status as a reborn summer vacation hotspot is now well-established. What with 1,200 islands along a gorgeous stretch of the Adriatic Sea, it’s no wonder. But there, amongst the sharp grey mountains of the southern Dalmatia region, wine has been made for thousands of years.

Just north of Dubrovnik, vineyards cling to the side of steep hills, bathing in the sun. On islands such as Hvar and Korcula, grapes spring up from old stone terraces that were built before anyone can remember. It’s here on these shores that amazing wines with exotic names such as Dingac, Postup, and Plavac Mali are made. This is also where the familiar grape we know as Zinfandel (locally called Crljenak) originally came from.

This enotourism guide has 60 extensive winery profiles in Dalmatia with GPS coordinates, hundreds of full color photos, maps, and tasting notes for 200 wines.

Editorial Reviews

Secret Dalmatia - Alan Mandic
Wonderfully designed: simple and clear – it makes a perfect introduction to the region and it's wines. I especially loved the brief history on nearly everything that matters and even a crash course into some very basic Croatian pronunciation.

Combined with superb photography, this book is an easy read and simply a must for everyone who is into wines and who is coming to Croatia.
