What is Old is New Again
Welcome to the start of the Chef Bob Continental Croatia Food and Drink Tour. Our trip will begin from the Hotel Academia in Zagreb, a 4-star hotel, located just steps away from Zagreb’s most famous street full of cafes and restaurants. Our luxury transportation will pick the group up and head to Kutjevo, a charming town in Eastern Croatia located in the Slavonia region, which is most known for its long and storied history of wine production, dating back hundreds of years.
We are starting the tour with a bang as we will be visiting the Krauthaker Winery, one of Croatia’s most award-winning and respected wineries https://www.krauthaker.hr/ for a tour/tasting and lunch. This is a truly special treat as they will be preparing some local specialties to be paired with their wines.
Afterward, we will head to Kutjevo Castle https://www.tzkutjevo.hr/sight-details/dvorac-kutjevo/ , built-in 1232 on the site of a Cistercian abbey, which will be our home for the next two nights. In 2015, the castle was renovated and the interior of the castle was upgraded to include luxurious rooms, a wellness center, a restaurant, and more. Also, the exterior has been decorated with a beautiful garden full of flowers, greenery, and breathtaking trees. Feel free to enjoy our lovely surroundings before meeting for a short stroll to our next stop, the Galic Winery https://galic-vina.hr/ where we will tour one of Croatia’s most state-of-the-art wineries and we will enjoy a private winery tasting/tour finishing off with our welcome dinner.
