SOLTA ISLAND HONEY TOUR BEEHIVE OPCIJA TOURS

Bees are so much more than just honey. Learn about those wonderful creatures, the problems they face in the modern world and see their beehive through a glass. Visit a real bee yard and bring back home some honey you will make yourself. Do not worry, it’s perfectly safe since you are at all times accompanied by our host, a professional beekeeper. Unique honey from Solta island which is extracted from the wild rosemary flower has been wanted and appreciated since the Antic ages. The tradition of beekeeping on Solta is confirmed by the foundation of the first beekeepers association in 1875. During the French administration in Dalmatia a special committee had evaluated the Solta honey and came to a conclusion that it was the best, not only in the whole province, but in the whole Europe. After World war II, the publishing company HOEPLI in Milano published a book “IL MIELE” which declared that honey from Solta was, because of its characteristics, amongst the three best honeys in the world. Beekeeping started within our host’s family in 1934. but the “real deal” commenced with the little kid in the middle who formed a respectable number of beehives in order to start doing it professionally. We will transfer you to island Solta with a ferry where our beekeeper awaits eagerly to show you tips and tricks of honey production in fantastic nature environment. You will produce honey, eat traditional island food and even have time for swimming and a stroll through charming villages.

HVAR ISLAND WINE TOUR-THE EVOLUTION OF ZINFANDEL

HVAR ISLAND WINE TOUR-THE EVOLUTION OF ZINFANDEL IN CROATIA

EVOLUTION OF ZINFANDEL TOUR OPCIJA TOURS

EVOLUTION OF ZINFANDEL TOUR OPCIJA TOURS

Winemaking on Hvar has been around for about 2000 years, with the Greeks bringing the knowledge of winegrowing while setting up a colony named Pharos (now called Starigrad). On the heels of the discovery that the most widely planted grape varietal on Hvar Island-Plavac Mali is actually an offspring of a world famous Zinfandel grape (also traced back to Kastela just outside of Split and is actually called Crljenak Kastelanski), international interest in Hvar wines has exploded.

First stop on the tour is a small cellar just outside of Jelsa that belongs to the Dubokovic family. Ivo, the head winemaker is working as a full time marketing professor while all of his love and free time go into making some of the best Croatian wines. A flight of wines at Dubokovic winery leaves people speechless. From interesting and unusual whites, huge and powerful reds to sweet and special desert wines you are guaranteed to leave the cellar delighted (and probably a bit tipsy).

Next we visit the biggest and most successful winemaker on Hvar, Andro Tomic. His state of the art winery and Greek inspired tasting room are a must see and the wine and delicacies pairing prepared by the staff of the winery is one of the most interesting experiences a true wine and food lover can have.

After visiting the wineries and pouring more than a dozen different wines into yourself, we will make sure you relax and savor the sounds and the tastes of Hvar on a wine paired lunch on one of our exquisite locations on Hvar.
