About
We will meet at a unique gourmet shop in Sarajevo city centre. You will taste 3 good Herzegovinian wines: Zilavka (a white wine) and Blatina (a red wine), and local Rose. With the wines, you will get some good Bosnian cheese from Kupres region served with local delicious olive oil, and prosciutto. The wine tasting is guided by expert specialised in local wines and food, who will tell you about the wines you're tasting, the history of wine and cheese production in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Did you know that Bosnia and Herzegovina's wine tradition is more than 2000 years long? Did you know that it is home to strong and quality wines from autochthonous Blatina and Zilavka grapes? Would you like to taste fantastic local cheese produced on Kupres Plain which sits on 1200 m above the sea? Join our cheese and wine tasting, receive the unique gourmet experience and learn more about undiscovered culinary treasures ;)

Fantastic Experience
I stumbled upon the shop by chance. I stopped in to inquire about all the offerings and the women working suggested I come back the next day for a wine and cheese sampling based on my interests. She took my name and noted my time. I arrived the next day and was provided a cheese plate with several servings of four different cheeses, olive oil and the apple product (I can't remember the name). I received two full glasses of wine, one white one red. After that I learned about rakija and was able to sample 3 flavors. We had a wonderful conversation about the local food scene and culture. I learned so much about the area in a a short time. While there several locals stopped in to buy products they can't get any where else! I can't recommend this shop enough. I wish I had time for a tour as well!
