After an easy 50-minute ferry ride from Split - optional extra is a private motor boat - travel past some sky-high vineyards to the island's southern shores and the Golden Horn (Zlatni rat) beach in the village of Bol, famous for changing shapes with the wind and sea currents. Here, the oldest wine cooperative on Brač, established in 1903, is currently occupied by the Stina winery. Drawing inspiration from Brač stone, the winery’s name literally translates to “Rock” and their wines, made of Plavac Mali and Pošip grapes, speak very fondly of it!
After enjoying Stina winery, drive back to the central part of the island to meet the winemaker Saša Senjković in the village of Dračevica. His family winery is located in an old, traditional Brač house, filled with authentic details and that good, old-times feeling. Their wines - Bosso, Bročka Rič and the outstanding Spoza rose, coupled with delicacies prepared by the golden hands of Saša’s wife Magdalena, make for both a memorable food and wine pairing lunch, and a real Brač experience.
At the end of the day, you will feel immersed in the magic of the Dalmatian karst and its wines, having learnt that hardships, when overcome, give rise to small, but wondrous treasures of life, like great art and great wines.
As the schedule, when traveling from Split, depends on ferries, many guests in summer months opt for spending some time on the beach before departing on a 4 PM ferry. In other months, cultural exploration of the islands' oldest villages is quite popular.
