Spend a delightful day touring and dining at a family estate in a mountain village and then explore medieval Kotor, where you will be treated to a rare interior visit of a church.

After departing from the pier, you will begin an immensely scenic and circuitous drive toward Fort Gorazda, a 19th-century fortress that overlooks Kotor and its fjord-like bay. The views will be extraordinary as you travel ever higher into the mountains, where you will pause for photos of the majestic beauty.

Before long, you will arrive at the Kascelan family estate in the village of Mirac. During an enlightening walking tour of the property with the owners, you will gain a sincere understanding of rural life. The estate vineyards are devoted to different types of grapes including Vranac, a varietal synonymous with Montenegro.

Following the walking tour, you will sample a selection of wines produced on the estate while savoring a meal made entirely with organic ingredients. The exact dishes will depend on the season, but you can be sure that they will reflect Montenegro’s traditional cuisine.

Back in Kotor, you will enjoy a walking tour of the Old Town, a wonderfully atmospheric medieval quarter with narrow winding streets, lovely squares and ornate palaces. The highlight will be an interior visit of the Church of St. Nicholas, a privilege usually reserved for locals only. Be sure to look at the detailed mosaic above the entrance.
