Fodor's Expert Review Korta Katarina Winery
Perched on a hill overlooking Trstenica Beach, award-winning Korta Katarina is a beautiful place to try Pelješac wines and the most accessible winery from Orebić. Korta is the name for the typical courtyards outside sea captains' homes around town, while Katarina is the daughter of the American couple, Lee and Penny Anderson, who traveled to Croatia in 2001 while on a rebuilding mission in Bosnia, fell in love with it, and opened the winery. Korta Katerina now produces eight wines: six red and rosé made from Plavac Mali, one Rukatac, and one Pošip. A winery visit, tasting, and optional pairings, which range from wine and chocolate to a full gastronomical experience, can be arranged in advance. In addition, after nearly a decade of no-expenses spared renovations to the former Rivijera Hotel next-door, the five-star Relais & Chateaux Villa Korta Katerina opened to guests with eight luxury rooms available to rent.
