For more than two millennia, Ilok and wine have been inseparable. The wines in Ilok are also divine – of superior quality, bouquet and taste. Between the extraordinary soil and climate conditions and the wine stands a man: the wine-grower and worker, the Syrmian, who “serves” his vineyard all the year round so that later in his cellar he can cultivate a product which he will offer to his visitors hospitably.
It is interesting that the wine cellars in Ilok are situated in the town. There is a winery/wine cellar in almost every street. The vineyards, on the other hand, are located on all the surrounding hills. This combination has created a special wine route which can be followed very simply. Naturally, one can also go as far as the vineyards and belvederes that can be found everywhere around the town.
HALF DAY TOUR (3h)
A combination of visits to the best wineries on the eastern part of Croatia. To experience the winegrowing hills and the landscape and walk through vineyards, we recommend to go to the belvedere and vineyards of Principovac, which boast a magnificent view of the surrounding vineyards, Ilok, the Danube, the eastern most parts of Croatia and the neighbouring Backa.
LET'S ADD A TWIST
FULL DAY TOUR
In traditional half day tour we love to add a tour to Ilocki podrumi with tourist train for additional wine degustation, traditional live music and lunch. Then the whole “Wine story” is completed.
