At each site, you have the opportunity to taste four or five different wines, accompanied by the island's finest local appetizers.

In the Sveta Nedjelja village, by the waterside, the Plenkovi family formed their horticulturist company in early 1986. The winery is responsible forCroatia's only Grand Cru, and another unforgettable feature is theunique underwater wine cellar overlooking the bottom of the sea.

Last but not least, the Cari family in Vrboska have been involved with vineyards for as long as they remember.

  • Great day with Ivan @ Caric winery in Vrobroska followed by the amazing Tomic winery in Jelsa.We enjoyed a tradional pekar meal in an abandoned village near town of Hvar. Visit to Napoleon's fortress was a bonus. We couldn't fault this tour- an interest in wine a bonus but not a requirement to enjoy the day.

  • This tour was excellent. We received a very personal driving tour around much of central Hvar Island. We were entertained with stories about the various scenic areas and allowed to stop whenever we wanted to take pictures. The 2 vineyards we visited had the most delicious wines. Tomic vineyard had a beautiful facility and tasting room and provided a very informational tour. Lastly, we finished our tour with a very unique authentic dalmatian dinner in an old abandoned village on the island. I highly recommend this tour.
