The centuries-old oral tradition, handed down by word of mouth in songs, stories, legends, connects Marko Polo and island Korcula; if you are in search of the far away worlds and exciting adventures come to the place from which he started his voyage. From its rich historic culture to the modern attitudes of today, Croatia is known as a country with a lot to appreciate. One of those appreciations is also the wining and dining heritage and it only stands to reason that one should visit Korcula island and take the time for a local wine tour.
The island of Korcula, abundant in quaint old villages, vineyards, wineries, and out-of-the-way beaches, is one of the most inhabited islands in the Adriatic Sea. In the central Dalmatian archipelago it is separated from the Peljesac peninsula only by a narrow strait. As all of the countries surrounding the Mediterranean are proud of their wines and the varieties, so is Croatia becoming more and more a wine destination. But one place in Korcula, with a burgeoning wine industry, is focusing on an unusual variety of grape. Just remember to visit Lumbarda and taste Grk wine (you say it like you spell it). The name "Grk" may be taken from the Greeks who first began making wine here about 2500 years ago but to taste it, you'll probably have to come to Villa Korcula in Croatia because only few thousand Grk wine bottles a year are produced on the entire island. The Grk region on Korcula, and the areas of Postup and Dingac on Peljesac, produce some of Croatia's top wines.
Villa Korcula is a great starting point to explore this beautiful island. Villa sits on a large estate just few metres from the sea, in a very private and quiet location with large lawned gardens, lots of outdoor terrace space and lovely incomparable sea views.
