Overview:

Croatia is one of the most diverse wine regions on the planet. We have more than 150 indigenous grape sorts, and Kaštela region near Split has more than 11 sorts. According to the old Church documents, family Kuzmanić started producing wines 300 years ago, especially ancient Dalmatian sorts Glavinuša, Babica & Tribljan.  Their cellar, located on the slopes of mountain Kozjak, is a 120 years old stone house offering fantastic views of the nearby islands. It was also used during construction of the local railway as a gun powder magazine. We will have time to try all their award-winning sorts, take a stroll to the nearby Biblical Garden Stomorija and enjoy dinner with our producer and his family garnished with vegetables from their co-estate.

Few facts about Kuzmanic winery: It was founded in 1720 / All wines rated premium / 10000 hand- grafted grapevines / 100% estate grown / indigenous sorts not available elsewhere / 5.000-6.000 bottles per year organic products sold only on the estate.

Delicious wines...

Damir provided an excellent tour. We visited a local family run vineyard / winery and sampled delicious wines, foods and other delicacies all prepared by the owner. We were able to taste all of his best wines, and even purchased some to bring home.

It was a special treat

Each wine maker set up a tasting with great food pairing. It was a special treat to do something so personal and have a blast with each wine maker and even meet their families.
