This Kotor wine tour includes all the ingredients that make up the perfect Montenegro tour: sun, sea, magnificent views, delicious wines and traditional cuisine… živjeli!

Kotor tours with a local guide are the best way to visit Montenegro's most beautiful destinations and experience true Montenegrin cuisine, culture and hospitality.Kotor winery tour

One of the best ways to experience a new culture is through its traditions. And wine, along with olive oil, are as traditional as it gets in Montenegro.

This tour takes you off the beaten tourist track to a boutique winery in Herceg Novi, at the entrance to the Bay of Kotor. Along the way you’ll stop in Perast for photos and a walk (if time allows) of the historic town with its two island churches.

Then you continue along one of the most scenic roads in Montenegro around the bay to Herceg Novi. Above Savina Monastery, which dates to 1030, you’ll visit Savina Winery. There, you can try three of their wines with traditional home-made snacks, their olive oil and their rakija (brandy). The ambiance and views in Savina are spectacular and it’s the perfect place to enjoy some traditional cuisine.

After the food and wine tasting you take the short drive to Herceg Novi, where you have a walking tour of the town.

Then you relax and enjoy the views of the bay’s hamlets as you drive back to Kotor, where you have walking tour though the historic old town that includes all the highlights of the old town plus visits to:

  • St. Tryphon's Cathedral - 1166. The cathedral was built on the remains of a former temple from the 9th century. Inside, you'll see the remains of 14th Century frescoes and valuable artefacts made of gold from both local and Venetian artists dating from the 14th century
  • Kotor Maritime Museum, in former Grubonja Palace. The museum has a unique collection representing maritime history of the Bay of Kotor. The collection includes many historical artefacts, traditional dress, weapons and furniture

You can finish your tour with an optional stop at the Old Winery, where you can try more boutique wines and cuisine from around Montenegro.

Do This Tour By Speed Boat

To add even more fun and adventure you can do this tour by speed boat too. Travelling by speed boat is more fun, more scenic, cooler (in both senses!) and lets you avoid summer traffic. You can also add visits to Our Lady of the Rocks and the Blue Cave for the perfect day of sun, sea and wine – the three key ingredients of the relaxed Montenegrin lifestyle ;-).
