Wine Tasting at the Grgich Winery

Miljenko (Mike) Grgich returned to his birth-home of Croatia from a successful career as a winemaker and winery owner in California to realize the dream of opening his own winery in his native land. The Grgich Winery is in Trstenik, on the Peljesac Peninsula. It’s housed in a plain stone building that was once a military station, then later a resort. It is surrounded by a wooded area that overlooks the rocky coast of the Adriatic below. We sampled several varieties. The whites were excellent, but we really liked the red Zinfandel, which was made from grapes grown close by in Plavac Mali.

  1. May I stop by your winery for a tour/wine tasting? I will be in Dubrovnik from 30 May to 5 June 2009. where are you located?

    thank you!

  2. I would very much like to visit Grgich Vina. We are in Croatia in July. can you provide address, phone number etc

  3. Follow the highway north from Dubrovnik, then take the road to Ston, through Ston on your way to Korcula. Watch for the sign after you drive pass the turn for Mjet. I think you can find the address and web info online. Check out the website.

  4. If you go to Pelješac or Korčula there are plenty of other winery which are worthwhile a visit, Grgich is indeed a nice wine but it is also expensive, I always buy a few bottles at some of the smaller wineries, here i get fresh wine for 20 kuna a liter, some is excellent some is only good for cooking (-:
    .-= Morten´s last blog ..Omis – weekend at Camp Galeb =-.

  5. Actually, the red wine is made from the Plavac Mali grape, which is the dominant red grape on the Peljesac Peninsula. Plavac Mali is related to the Zinfandel grape through their common ancestor the Primitivo grape. Grgic wines are excellent and among the best in the region

  6. We are taking a cruise in May that makes a one day stop in Dubrovnik. We spent 3 days in DUbrovnik last year so have some familiarity with the city.
    What trasnprotation options are available for traveling to the Grgich Winery and approximately what is the travel time. There will be 12 of us making the trip.

    Thank you for any advice,
