This wine tour will take you to Eastern Herzegovina, the town called Trebinje, which is a one-and-half hour drive away from Mostar. Trebinje will show you a different culture, religion, architecture. . . The smell, taste and colour of high-quality authentic Herzegovinian wines is a true pleasure for any wine lover.
Herzegovina region, rich in vineyards and wine cellars, is still little-known to masses. A visit to one of three best and the most successful wine cellars Vukoje, Tvrdoš and Andjelić will provide a nice opportunity to try their wine fresh from the barrel. A reputation for quality have two Herzegovinian autochthonous varieties of wines: dry fruit-filled white wine žilavka and strong red wine blatina which can be velvety and complex.
You can also enjoy traditional dishes in an old restaurant with its own wine-cellar.

The cultural heritage which we recommend on this wine tour:
Tvrdoš Monastery with its wine cellars goes back to the period of the 4th to 6th centuries. It was built upon the stone formations of Tvrdos along the right bank of the Trebisnjica River, 4 km west of town of Trebinje. Since then was torn down several times and built up again. Today's monastery is from the 13th century.
Frescos of Dubrovnik painter Vicko Lovrov and the monk Marko Stefanov - Trebinjac can be found there. In the first half of the 6th century the monastery was the biggest scriptorium of the Slavic south, and at the same time cultural and spiritual center of a broader area.
The wines Vranac, Žilavka and Hum Cabarnet from the cellars of Tvrdoš Monastery won several Decanter World Wine awards.
Vjetrenica Cave, located in the Municipality of Ravno in the south Herzegovina, only 12 km away from the Adriatic coast. This protected natural monument leans against the Dubrovnik litoral and encompasses the fertile Popovo Field. Vjetrenica (means "wind cave") is the largest and the most famous cave in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Its magical beauty, wide corridors and halls, underground water and waterfalls, and the wind blowing constantly through its entrance make this cave a very interesting place to visit.
