Total Croatia News

Yesterday, February 29, 2016, the Tourism Council of the Vrgorac Tourist Board issued a declaration to have Vrgorac become the City of the Dalmatian Pršut and Wine and announced a 3-day manifestation – The Days of the Dalmatian Pršut and Wine to take place in early September at the Ethno village Kokorići.

Inspired by the fact, that the meat industry Braća Pivac, several smaller registered smoke-houses and private smoke-houses located in the Vrgorac area, together place more than 130.000 pieces of the Dalmatian Pršut on the Croatian market, which makes it more than a half of the Croatian production. And the fact, that the Vrgorac areas: Jezero, Rastok and Bunina have more than 14 milion grapevines, which makes the Vrgorac area one of the biggest Croatian wine region, while with a long family tradition of making wine, more and more winemakers turn to growing old native types of vine, all these facts brought the Vrgorac tourist board to a decision to start the ethno-gastro festival The Days of the Dalmatian Pršut and Wine.

It should be an annual, 3-day weekend event, which will pair the traditional culinary values of the hinterland with the authentic rural ambience of the ethno-village Kokorići and the delightful scenery of the Vrbgorac hinterland accompanied by the Dalmatian folklore an other Vrgorac products (honey, chees, bacon, fruits and vegetables).
