Taste a variety of wines and pair them with delicious traditional treats. Drive to Jelsa and visit one of the most famous Croatian winemakers. Jelsa is a small coastal town with a long and proud wine-making tradition. In Jelsa young, admire the ambitious ”wine newcomers” without vineyards or with very small land plots. They base wine production on grapes purchased from other farmers. 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. The Carić family has been involved with vineyards for generations, however, it was not before Vino Hvar was established that they started to produce their own Carič wines. Their work in the vineyards is just as important to them as their work in the winery. There are 5 hectares of vineyards in the specially designated wine growing area known as Vinogorje Hvar. The family also grows indigenous varieties: Plavac Mali, Bogdanjuša, Kuč, Maraština, Darnekuša and Pošip. In addition they purchase a small amount of grapes from contract growers to complement their crop.
