HVAR ISLAND WINE TOUR-THE EVOLUTION OF ZINFANDEL IN CROATIA
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.
