There has been an explosion of wine bars all over Croatia in recent years, an exciting new trend in both tourism and a new outlet for local entertainment. The city of Split, for example, had no wine bars just four years ago, and it seems that now there is a new one opening every month. It has added another dimension to tourism and nightlife in general.
It has also been an extremely interest outlet for local wine producers to present their wines to international customers, where perhaps previously they were not in a position to do so. Tourists in general tend to know little about Croatian wine, with its unpronounceable names and unfamiliar varieties.
Some winebars focus exclusively on local Croatian varieties, while others have more of an international selection. As with all things Croatian wine related, there is plenty of choice!
