Wine in Croatia - activities while holidaying

Croatia has been producing wine for several centuries now. And since it is one of the leading coastal wine regions in Europe, it is an excellent food travel destination for wine enthusiasts. There are plenty of vineyards and wineries spread all over the country, so you have many options when it comes to wine tasting.
There are around 130 varieties planted in small family vineyards in Croatia. And these produce dozens of international types spread across more than 20,000 hectares of vines. The key grape varieties that lead to the production of premium Croatian wines are Grasevina, Malvazija Istarska, and Plavac Mali.
Croatian wine is still unknown to most people, which is why going for a wine trip in Croatia is a good idea at any time. You should know there are two different wine-producing areas in Croatia. The continental region in the north-east of the country and north-west offers the rich, fruity white wines. The coastal region is one of the most popular among tourists, thanks to the qualitative Istrian wines similar to the ones produced in Italy. Also, on the Dalmatian coast, you will discover unique wines, produced from impressive local grape varieties. 
No matter which area you opt to visit, make sure you plan a visit to one of the local Croatian wineries. You will get the chance to taste some of the premium wines awarded international prizes!
