Wine Tasting in Bosnia and Herzegovina

IMG_3600

As part of a recent trip to Croatia, I made a quick trip across the border into Bosnia and Herzegovina for a half-day wine tour with Taste Dubrovnik (link here). You’re probably thinking what I was thinking – “You can do a wine tour in Bosnia?” – yes, yes you can. The region doesn’t produce a significant amount of wine which is probably why you haven’t see a BOSNIA section at your local shop. What they do produce is a bit sweet for my tastes but very much worth the trip regardless of your palette.

Highlights of my tour included a quick stop at a farmers’ market in Trebinje to taste the local products (i.e. cheese matured in sheep’s skin), a tour of the Tvrdos Monastery (where monks have been making wine since the 15th century), and a fresh fish (literally, fish in pool next to table) lunch by the river. Below are some iPhone photos of the journey…
