Private Silk Heritage And Wine Tasting

Product Image
Take part in the ancient craft of producing silk when you visit the Stony Hymn property in Konavle. Enjoy local food and be provided a wine tasting to round out this cultural day.

The delicate and beautiful art of silk production has revived, despite global industrialism, as a family tradition in several households in the Konavle area. During this private, half-day tour you will have the wonderful opportunity to learn and participate in one of this area's most important cultural traditions.

Be met at the port and you will board your private transportation and make your way to the Stony Hymn property in Konavle where you will learn about the centuries-old Dubrovnik silk tradition and its heritage. Upon arrival, the hosts will warmly welcome you with a drink and a local and delicious snack of homemade frites and almonds. Then take a seat and watch in amazement as they skillfully show you, from cocoon to silk, all about this ancient silk heritage.

Following the demonstration you will get to taste some of the best delicacies this area has to offer: homemade mint and briar tea, homemade prosciutto with white and red wine and homemade Konavle cake.

This very special and culturally rich private 4-hour tour sells out fast! Book now and step into Konavle's beautiful silk heritage.
