Lake Skadar Wine tasting and Gastronomy Trips

"You will experience a deep love for grapes you've never heard of, Montenegrian salami and cheese fresh from the farm and the warmth of your genial Montenegrin hosts. We hesitate to share - don't ruin it by going there!" Sarah, Betsy and Emma, July 2015

"The experience was exceptional...(Tanja's) boar stew was outstanding. It was perhaps the best thing we ate all week while we were in Montenegro. One of our group had the fish soup and carp instead and said that was also excellent. We then had the best desert we had of the entire trip!" tour_contact, June 2016

"Bojana was fantastic and we loved the couple who ran the beautiful wine-dining vineyard. The food & wine were delicious & (it was a) great way to learn about the local culture & produce." bocky105, July 2015

Lake Skadar National Park has some of the most naturally fertile soil in Europe - organic produce grows in abundance in the surrounding valleys, and the area is also home to Montenegrin wine-country and the delicious vranac grape.
Our wine and gastronomy tours are authentic local experiences where we partner with only the very best local producers and home cooks, all of whom adhere to centuries-old organic principles. Almost everything you will eat or drink has been home-grown, home-reared, home-made or home-caught - and believe us, you can taste the difference!

All wine-tasting and meals are arranged with local families of the Lake Skadar Valley area. Want to find out more? Call us on +382 (0)69 770027 or email tours@lake-skadar.com _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________
