Full description
The ancient Greeks and Romans were already growing grapes and producing wine on Hvar in 300 BC. 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. The wine tour begins in Hvar town with a drive to the other side of the island to the island's most important wine region. Further on, you'll visit two of the most famous Croatian winemakers. The wine tour includes wine tastings in two wineries of your choice (depending on availability). 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 the Makarska vineyards below Mt. Biokovo. Here you will have a chance to see an astonishing underwater wine cellar overlooking the bottom of the sea. You will have the opportunity to taste 4-5 different wines including Croatia's only Grand Cru with the islands finest local appetizers.

Jelsa is a small coastal town which has a very proud and long wine-making tradition. The Tomić family and ten other people from the island of Hvar work in the winery. They cultivate indigenous grapes, but experiment with 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. In the wine cellar you will have the opportunity to taste 4-5 different wines together with a specific wine guide, who will describe the individual wines and provide all information needed with island's finest local appetizers.

Situated in Vrboska, the Carić family have been involved with vineyards for as long as they remember, however it was not before Vino Hvar was established that they started producing their own wines, “Carič wines”.  They have 5-hectares of vineyards in a specially designated wine growing area known as “Vinogorje Hvar.” Their wines have an individual story from the vineyard to the winery. You will have the opportunity to taste 4-5 different wines together with a specific wine guide, who will describe the individual wines, and provide all information needed with the island's finest local appetizers. After the wineries, you will enjoy a spectacular traditional Dalmatian dinner in the charming abandoned village of Malo Grablje or in Konoba in an olive grove.
