Korcula Wines & Olive Mill

DETAILS

    hrs Estimate Duration

Sample the characteristic olive oil and wines produced locally and gain a greater understanding of their production by touring the groves and vineyards at two wineries.


After a brief walk from the pier, you will begin a picturesque drive west across Korcula, passing farmland, vineyards and forests along the way. The founding Greeks named the island for its dense forests, calling it Black Corfu, which later became Korcula.


Upon arriving in coastal Vela Luka, you will visit Uljara Zlokic, a family-owned olive oil mill. Olives have been grown on the island for well over a thousand years, and the two most prominent local species impart a pleasantly sharp taste to the resulting oil.


While touring the olive grove and mill, you will see how the olives are processed and gain insight into the production of the oil. The methods haven’t changed enormously over the generations, as you will discover in the museum-like exhibits of ancient tools and oil presses. Afterwards, you will sample the distinctive olive oil produced here.


Then, you will travel to nearby Crnja Luka for another wine tasting at the Bacic family estate. Following an introductory tour of the grounds, you will settle in to the cellar to sample some locally produced ham and cheese and several of the estate’s wines. The wines will reflect the characteristics of the region and taste all the more authentic as an accordionist will serenade you with traditional Croatian songs. Afterwards, you will return to the pier.
