The vineyard where we sat in all simplicity on a wooden bench with a towel on it, where we ate the most delicious cheese and ham with our fingers, where we ate fresh almonds, enjoyed a great view and listened to someone with passion for what he does, that was unanimously the highlight of our trip for our entire tem! It’s not about the prettiest, most expensive, best review. It is about love and attention to what you do and radiate. The wine tasting gets 5* from us despite the duo toilet 😎
We had an amazing time at Kuzmanic winery. We were there with a big group and were welcomed to the beautiful terrain. With all the four (fantastic) wines we got a very broad explanation of the process of the wine making and we learnt so much about the grapes, the area and the history. After the tour around the terrain we were welcomed into a beautiful table outside for dinner, with home-made olive oil and great food. We were absolutely amazed by the red wine combined with the grilled vegetables. I would surely recommend this tour for wine lovers!
I was slated to pull into Split, Croatia onboard a US aircraft carrier, and I found this tour online and booked it for my squadron. I reached out to the company to begin setting it up, and Damir got back to me immediately with all the options available to us. We decided on the Zinfandel Origin Wine Tour, and Damir sent me all the details. I forwarded it on to my squadron and almost right away I had all 30 members sign up in incredibly excited fashion. Based on our relatively short stay we had dinner plans that night, so I asked Damir if it was possible to switch the dinner at the second winery to lunch and go there first. He was able to make the switch right away. We then had to switch dates due to scheduling, and he was able to work with both the wineries and bus company to accommodate our shift in schedule. Every single question and request was answered and handled immediately by Damir personally. He was incredibly friendly and so easy to work with. Anything we needed he catered to, and my squadron and I were so excited to go on this wine tour. In a most unfortunate circumstance our trip to Croatia ended up being cancelled altogether due to rising conflict in other parts of the world. Everyone was crushed because the trip was going to be so amazing, and Damir had customized it for us to ensure it was perfect. Damir’s willingness to assist us in any way possible, and his overall friendliness and generosity made a lasting impact on me, and as a result I will now be returning to Croatia on my own after I complete this deployment. Damir and his company made the greatest impression of Croatian citizens possible, and I cannot wait to finally get there, see the country, and go on the Zinfandel Origins Wine Tour! Despite having not done it yet, if you want a tour with an awesome guide and an awesome company this is the one you want. I personally recommend it as highly as possible based on the ease of planning alone. No doubt the tour itself is the best day you could have. Damir, on behalf of a grateful US Naval Aviation squadron, thank you so much! We’ll be back!
Our group very much enjoyed the winery tour and dinner! The night started with a short drive from Split to the winery where we did a short walking tour after enjoying a couple glasses of wine. We then returned back for an incredible dinner of local meats and veggies along with more wine. Great experience!!
Unforgettable tour! You can walk in a historical grape yard while swirling the tasty wine in your hand. Marvelous view over the village and Adriatic sea just enriches those stories about the winery and Croatian wine. You’ll not miss superb local red and white wines which can only be found here in Trogir. Not to mention how the warm-hearted host, Ivan and Iwanka, and the lip smacking dinner color your day.
We had an absolute blast on this tour- set up was super easy and convenient with Damir. He communicated and set up pick up time all the same day. This was honestly the highlight of our 2 weeks in Croatia. It was fascinating learning the history of the vineyard and we even got to drink wine with the owner! Would recommend 10/10.
