Here in Croatia, Dubokovic wines have become a ''must have'' in the finest restaurants, hotels and specialized wine shops. Dubokovic - Medvid wines now have the distinction of being the most expensive regular vintage wines in the country!
After the Dubokovic wine cellar tour and wine tasting we'll head to an olive grove for a fabulous lunch/dinner (depending on the time of day). This trip ends with an authentic island culinary picnic at the picturesque village of Vrisnik.
Your host is one of the best Croatian olive oil producers, Mr. Borivoj Bojanic. His grove has an amazing view of Hvar's 2234 year-old Ager field, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the oldest preserved agriculture plain in the world.. As you savor the subtle flavors of all the local herbs and condiments used in the preparation of your meal and gaze out at Ager field, you will understand the essence of island living among unspoiled nature. Our glorious full day tour begins in the ‘’heart of Hvar Island’’. We'll head south, passing thought the island's 1400 meter long stone tunnel to finally reach the island's most important wine region-the lush vineyards located on the shoreside cliffs. Continuing further to Jelsa we'll visit one of the most famous Croatian winemakers, the Bastijana Wine cellar.
