Croatia’s Pelješac peninsular, a synonym for wine, will see its winemakers, restaurants and taverns open their doors for wine and food lovers from 15 May – 15 June.
During the festival, wineries participating will offer their visitors discounts on wine (20% on certain wine palettes), and restaurants and taverns will have menus with traditional Pelješac specialties with a glass of local wine designed specifically for the festival (there will be two menus, one for 120 kuna and one for 180 kuna).
53 wineries, wine bars, restaurants and family farms will be taking part in the project.
Organisers say that the Pelješac Cellars Festival is a themed event that does not pose a security risk even during a pandemic. There are no large gatherings, and it is recommended to come to the wineries by appointment. The festival will also include educational workshops, professional lectures and various other events of interest to wine lovers.
This is a great opportunity for all who during their stay want an authentic experience inspired by the rich gastronomy and wine tradition, as well as one-day visitors who want to experience a special tourist experience.
The event was designed by all four tourist boards from Pelješac (TZO Ston, TZO Trpanj, TZO Janjina and TZO Orebić) in cooperation with the company Feel IQM. Through joint coordination with winemakers and caterers from all over Pelješac, the final details of the event were designed.
“Pelješac with its wine tradition, traditional taverns and fish restaurants will satisfy even the most picky palates. Wine for the people of Pelješac is much more than a good drop, a lot of love and passion is brought into this story that lasts for centuries. Come to the Pelješac Cellars Festival and embark on a new eno-gastronomic experience,” organisers said.
