The Summer Trend in Croatia: Rediscovering Authentic Living

Amidst today’s bustling pace, incentive clients are choosing activities that focus on authentic living by embracing simplicity, mindfulness, and a connection to nature. More and more are choosing to have their groups step away from the chaos of modern life to savour the beauty of natural ingredients and meaningful relationships with colleagues. Below are some of the top experiences in Croatia:

Farm-to-table dining

Throughout Croatia groups are indulging in a farm-to-table experience, relishing dishes crafted from locally sourced ingredients harvested just moments before. This immersive culinary journey intertwines with Croatia’s rich heritage and eco-conscious ethos, offering a genuine exploration of its diverse cuisine.

One of the pearls of Croatia food scene right now are Mali Ston Oysters. Renowned for their exceptional flavour, these oysters are sustainably farmed in pristine waters and are one of the only oyster that does not need to go through filtration before they are consumed. Groups can enjoy freshly harvested oysters on a private pontoon in the Mali Ston bay, paired with regional wines, for a truly authentic and delicious culinary adventure.

Sip, savour and connect: experience the essence of biodynamic winemaking

Biodynamic wine production in Croatia is gaining significant attention for its commitment to sustainable and holistic agricultural practices. Biodynamic farming views vineyards as self-sustaining ecosystems, emphasizing the harmony between soil, plants, and animals. Croatian winemakers adopting this method adhere to organic principles, avoiding synthetic chemicals, and using natural preparations to enhance soil fertility and plant health.

The Istrian and Dalmatian regions are particularly noted for their biodynamic vineyards. They often feature a distinct minerality and balanced acidity, making them a favorite among connoisseurs. By embracing biodynamic practices, Croatian winemakers not only contribute to environmental sustainability but also elevate the quality and authenticity of their wines, offering wine loving and wine curious groups a unique and enriching wine-tasting experience.
