Wine tour of Hvar Island

One of the most popular wine tours in Croatia!

With the first vines planted by the Greeks over 2.200 years ago, Hvar remains one of the ancient homelands of viniculture in Croatia. This site of origin is today known as Stari Grad Plain and has been enlisted as UNESCO cultural heritage. As you might imagine, over centuries, the tradition has been perfected and experiencing local wines is a must when on Hvar.

Our tour visits the two of the most prominent local producers. The first tasting is your chance to meet the leading Croatian "garage" winemaker Ivo Duboković and experience his ''2.718 hours of sun in the bottle''. Duboković’s Medvid wines are the Rolls Royce of garage wines and his ''must have'' expensive vintages are now served only in the finest restaurants, hotels, and specialized wine shops in Croatia.
The tour continues with a visit to the nearby temple of Hvar wine making. Andro Tomić, one of the most famous Croatian winemakers, sets a grandiose tone at his Bastjana winery, modelled after the basement of the Diocletian’s palace. His wines continue to dazzle connoisseurs all over the world and the French magazine La Revue du vin de France raved that his wines were "...a benchmark for the future millennium!"
For the perfect ending to a perfect day, enjoy a wonderful home-made lunch in an olive grove near picturesque Vrisnik. Alternatively and depending on availability, meal can be served in a local tavern in the abandoned village of Malo Grablje.
