Trip details

Day 1

Fly into Croatia’s iconic capital city and relax with private transfers to the accommodation. Spend some time relaxing in your five-star hotel (with spectacular views across the Adriatic), you’ll receive an evening’s comprehensive introduction to Croatian wines with a tasting of the local fare – the perfect pre-dinner aperitif.

Day 2

Today, you’ll embark on a full day’s private wine tour across the Dingač wine region. The wines of Dingač are some of Croatia’s finest: made primarily from the Plavac Mali grape variety, these reds tend to be dark, full-bodied and suffused with a unique, delightful bouquet – not to mention being unusually strong. There’s a very good reason why these wines, produced on the region’s incredible hillside wineries and vineyards, are widely considered (and officially classified) as among the best in the country. Through the course of the day, you’ll visit the salt works in Ston, visit three superb local wineries – with tours and tastings at each, accompanied by local cheese, prosciutto and oysters, with a three-course lunch included to break up the day.

Day 3

Head out on a chartered boat to spend the day touring the legendary Elafiti Islands. You’ll island-hop from Koločep to Lopud to Šipan, exploring the islands themselves and swimming, walking or relaxing entirely at your own pace, with your on-board lunch provided. The Elafiti Islands are some of the last untouched spots in the Mediterranean, and will doubtless prove to be utterly unforgettable.

Day 4

On your final day, you’ll get the chance to relax and unwind – or explore Dubrovnik itself – before catching a late flight home.

Very well organised trip to Tuscany, getting in 2 wine regions. Lovely hotel with amazing view. The best part was our guide Paula who ensured our wine tasting tours were with smaller wineries which have authenticity and care for the environment. Highly recommend SmoothRed!

SmoothRed did an outstanding job providing chauffeured driven wine tour through Bourgogne and the Rhone valley (France). The multiple vendors they used were all Courteous, Prompt, and very fluent in English. This 7 day trip went without problems. I would highly recommend SmoothRed.

We came to Bordeaux for part of our honeymoon and took the First Growth Bordeaux tour. SmoothRed worked with us to curate a trip based on our desires. The 8 Chateaux we visited, the 3 delicious lunches, and the hotel were wonderful, but what set the trip apart was our…
