Hvar Wine tour

Written By amazinghvar

The ancient Greeks and Romans were already growing grapes and producing wine on Hvar 300 years well before Christ was born. This gave them safety, food and medicinal wealth.

Vineyards are all over the island. Strong wind and sun are ideal conditions for producing the best quality wine, including Croatia’s only Grand Cru. Plavac mali is the most indigenous grape in the Dalmatian region.

TOUR DESCRIPTION:

 

Our wine tour begins in Hvar town with a drive to the other side of the island to the island’s most important wine region. Continuing further we’ll visit two of the most famous Croatian winemakers. The wine tour includes two wineries.

Bastijana – Drink to hours, not on litres.

Situated in Jelsa, a small coastal town which has a very proud and long winemaking tradition.

 

The Tomić family and ten other people from the island of Hvar work in the winery. They cultivate indigenous grapes, but experiment new ones as also. They are constantly enhancing the production of red, white and rose varieties with modern technologies, but pay particular attention to Prošek, the original Dalmatian wine made from selected and dried grapes of the highest quality local varieties.

Zlatan otok In the Sv. Nedjelja village, by the waterside, the Plenković family formed their horticulturist company in early 1986. Their vineyards are to the south of Hvar island and on Makarska vineyards below Mt. Biokovo. The wine tasting are held in a unique underwater wine cellar overlooking the bottom of the sea.

At each wine cellar you will have the opportunity to taste 4 – 5 different wines together with a personalised wine guide, who will describe the individual wines and provide the information needed to satisfy your curiosity, with islands finest local appetisers.

After the wineries we head to a spectacular Traditional Dalmatian dinner in the charming abandoned village of Malo Grablje.

I was born in Ljubljana, capital of Slovenia. Completed secondary school studies, with particular interest in design and photography. Studied Administrative sciences at University, and after graduating worked for a large company in Ljubljana in their Marketing and Sales department. I remember as a young girl, on our first family holiday, visiting Hvar, with her clear waters and beautiful beaches. Years later, I visited Hvar again with some friends. It remained the peaceful island I had remembered, with stunning scenery and friendly locals. Just the remedy needed for a full time, hard working girl in a very stressful job. Whilst in Hvar I met, and fell in love with a local fisherman, Tonći. We married and decided to live in Hvar. As a young girl, I promised my mother that one day I would return to live in Hvar. My dream has now come true.
