Day 1 – Sunday, July 3rd
Croatia’s Hidden Gem
Welcome to Croatia! Our tour begins as we pick up the group from our meeting point, the Radisson Blu hotel in Split. You will be greeted by our co-hosts, Chef Michael Kramer and Chef Richard Gruica, and the tour's private driver to start our fabulous week-long adventure. We will head out for a short drive to our fabulous 4-star hotel where we will be staying for two nights in Sibenik, one of Croatia’s lesser-known Croatian coastal cities. We will be staying at the ever-lovely D-Resort, one of Croatia’s most stylish resorts, with its sleek and striking design, creating a lovely juxtaposition to one of Croatia’s oldest port towns. After check-in, enjoy a short break to unwind and freshen up before we take a short trip to Croatia’s premier winery, Bibich Wine Croatia that was featured in the Bourdain episode of Croatia. There, we will enjoy a wine and food pairing of your dreams. Take it from him when he said “this is world-class food; this is world-class wine; this is world-class cheese…If you haven’t been here yet, you are a fu@king idiot”.…here are links to videos to see.
We will return to the hotel afterward with free time to do as you wish for the remainder of the night. Sibenik is often overlooked by tourists, but we love this area and we are sure you will too. It is full of historical marvels, ancient fortresses, and some of the best food and wine in all of Croatia. Check out this video on Sibenik.
