You will be a guest at the family property of Marin Mijić. The property is located just next to the old fortress of Klis (GoT Meereen City), and its owned by the family since 1537. Surrounded by beautiful nature, olive groves, vineyards, and orchards, it attracts both visitors & locals. Marin will explain to you how much effort and patience you need to make olive oil and wine. On the farm, you can enjoy yourself in the presence of domestic animals as chickens, rabbits, cats, and dogs. Collect chicken eggs or feed the rabbits to feel like a real farmer. Then you'll go to the tavern where Marin will explain how the remains of grapes produce schnapps. You will have the opportunity to see the old tools for farming, old wooden wine barrels, old-style fireplace, brick oven, etc. After that, all you need is to enjoy homemade products such as wine, schnapps, smoked meat, olive oil, cheese, and great views in an intimate group.

Marin lives up in mountains of Split at his family's 400-year-old estate with a gorgeous view of the city. We ate figs directly from his trees, met his grandmother, learned about his olive oil making process, drank lots of wine and liqueurs, ate delicious bread, meat and cheese...all made by his family. It's no wonder this is a top experience on Airbnb.
The Wine & Olives experience was the highlight of my time in Split. Marin and his family are lovely, and their farm is beautiful. The few hours we spent enjoying the beautiful scenery and excellent wine and food made me feel like I'd stepped into a Luca Guadagnino film. I think I experienced the true meaning of 'fjaka' there. Can't recommend this enough!
I wish there were 10 stars to give. Such an amazing family, amazing food and an amazing farm. You will NOT regret do this side trip.
