Wine Tours

Hvar has a distinguished wine tradition dating back to the Greeks and there are some quality producers today. Among the best are Zlatan Penkovic in Sveta Nedjelja, who produces Croatia's only Grand Cru, and Andro Tomic in Jelsa. Both have wine tasting facilities by appointment, or why not try one of the organised wine tours, a great way to explore the island and taste its wines.

Vinaria Pinjata behind the church fortress in Vrboska has good wines to taste if you do not want to venture too far.
