Full description
Head out on a drive to Jelsa on this 3-hour program and visit one of the most famous Croatian winemakers. Jelsa is a small coastal town with a long and proud wine-making tradition. The Tomić family and 10 other people from the island of Hvar work in the winery. They cultivate indigenous grapes, but experiment with new ones as well. The family is 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’ll have the opportunity to taste 4 or 5 different wines with a wine guide, who will describe the individual wines and tell you about the finest local appetizers that will accompany them. 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 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.

This tour is a must!

Our driver/guide was Dinko, he was a very pleasant man whose family have lived on Hvar for over 500 years, so his knowledge of Hvar, its culture and history was excellent. We stopped at a high point lookout for a magic view and some photos, saw old lavender plots, villages that are no longer operational as its residents have moved to town or away , saw beautiful olive trees, and visited the Tomic winery. The wine tasting was conducted by Antonia, she presented all the information in a way that was easy to understand, such history about wine, the area and what the wine means to Croatian people. The tour was informative and the tasting, Wow! We sat in a stunning tasting room, the wines were presented to us with full and detailed descriptions and paired with a small anti pasto plate. Such a great way to spend an afternoon outside the Old Town and learning more about Hvar and its people.

Fabulous- loved every moment

A cultural adventure beyond wine tasting. Our host clearly loved his country and was very knowledgeable on the history and culinary traditions of Hvar. We collected wild herbs and fruit and saw many of the local attractions. The wine tasting was excellent - a fabulous way to taste small batch wines in a lovely location. I would highly recommend doing this tour.
