Full description

Embark on an insightful adventure through the traditional wine region of Vinogorje Hvar. Visit ancient local wineries and admire views of the vast vineyards on a guided tour. Taste a variety of wines and pair them with delicious traditional treats.

Drive to Jelsa and visit one of the most famous Croatian winemakers. Jelsa is a small coastal town with a long and proud wine-making tradition. In Jelsa young, admire the ambitious ”wine newcomers” without vineyards or with very small land plots. They base wine production on grapes purchased from other farmers.

Here in Croatia, Dubokovic wines have become a ”must have” in the finest restaurants, hotels, and specialized wine shops. Dubokovic – Medvid wines now have the distinction of being the most expensive regular vintage wines in the country. The Carić family has been involved with vineyards for generations, however, it was not before Vino Hvar was established that they started to produce their own Carič wines. Their work in the vineyards is just as important to them as their work in the winery. There are 5 hectares of vineyards in the specially designated wine growing area known as Vinogorje Hvar. The family also grows indigenous varieties: Plavac Mali, Bogdanjuša, Kuč, Maraština, Darnekuša and Pošip. In addition they purchase a small amount of grapes from contract growers to complement their crop.

Great experience! The driver (sorry, forgot your name) took us to a lot of nice places and gave us a lot of information. Also the wine tasting was great, tasting a lot of wine from very nice people! We highly recommend this experience if you want to see and learn more of the island in a very relaxed and pleasant way.

We loved the three hour wine tasting and even got a super informative tour of parts of Hvar we would never have seen otherwise. The winery was small, family run and so quaint. We entered the rustic wine cellar to find a candle-lit table set with cheese, bread and four hand-made olive oils, surrounded by the barrels and bottles of wine. We learned about their unique wines and tasted at least seven of them - which were fabulous. I would have bought a case of one of the reds but unfortunately we didn’t have room in our luggage to bring home even one bottle. But we did buy two small bottles of their delicious olive oil. On the way home our wonderful guide took us through lavender fields and to an old fortress while explaining the history of the island. It was well worth the three hours and I would highly recommend to anyone. Hvar has so much more than just the beautiful beaches and restaurants/clubs!

Great Guide who os from Hvar and told me much interesting things about the island. Wine was also great and snacks really tasty. I booked alone and they wanted to postpone as I was the only one. That was not possible for me so they kept the date and I had a wonderful evening with to other persons at the wine bar.
