In spite of tight relationship between wine production and tourism, dating back in early history, these two high-income industries have existed separately for a long time. Bearing in mind such a fact, the current study aimed to collect the existing knowledge and brightful tips on wine tourism, a complex phenomenon yet pretty underdeveloped in the Western Balkans as a whole, particularly if compared to the examples of rather good practice in wine-producing countries such as France, Italy and Spain.
