In the Sveta Nedjelja village, by the waterside, the Plenković family formed their horticulturist company in early 1986. The winery is responsible for Croatia’s only Grand Cru, and another unforgettable feature is the unique underwater wine cellar overlooking the bottom of the sea.
In Jelsa, a small coastal town with a long wine-making tradition, the Tomić family cultivate indigenous grapes as well as experimenting with new ones. Pay particular attention to Prošek, the original Dalmatian wine made from selected grapes of the highest local quality.
In the village of Vrisnik meet the only woman among winemakers Jo Ahearne. She moved few years ago on the island from Great Briatain and she is an academically trained winemaker and first Master of Wine producing in Croatia. Her knowledge and indigenous grapes from the islands of Hvar and Korčula makes a perfect combination in wine bottles. In every sip you will find the love of grapes and sophisticated flavour of wine.
In the largest village of Vrbanj on the island the Plančić family started in 1919 and continues until the present day, combining tradition and modern oenological achievements. In every glass you will find the love of grapes, authenticity of the ecologically protected area, and harmony of the indigenous but courageous wine producers.
Last but not least, the Carić family in Vrboska 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 “Carič wines”. The family have 5-hectares of vineyards in a specially designated wine growing area known as “Vinogorje Hvar.”
We will choose three vineries among five listed above. Our choice will depend on the availability of listed vineries. Please feel free to suggest your favourite vineries and we will try to do our best.
