Experience a special wine tasting in the heart of Hvar Island on a full day tour

Tour type: Private , Duration: 6 Hours

Description

The wine tasting experience on Hvar island began more than 2,400 years ago when the legendary Greeks introduced viticulture not only in Hvar, but to much of the Dalmatian coast as well. Since then, the Romans, Venetians, Austrians and Croatians have added their special knowledge and influence to this art. With such an amazing legacy, it's no wonder today's Hvar winemakers are so passionate about the fruits of their labour.
Coaxing each vine to produce extraordinary grapes and then harvesting, crushing and hand-crafting them into a unique "drink of the gods" is something few people are willing to devote their entire lives to. Even the stories about how some of these rare island vintages were created are legendary. Do not miss the opportunity to experience the sine qua non of this craft and choose from reds, whites, cuvees, barrique, sweet dessert wines, aceto balsamico, and then visit the island's finest wineries and winemakers to taste examples of rare signature vintages.
The tour begins in the heart of Hvar Island, the lush vineyards located on the island's steep south shore cliffs. To get here, pass through the island's 1400 metre-long stone tunnel and take the dirt track road to finally...

Ante

Ante was born on Hvar and like so many Croatians, learned about the sea, olives, Croatian culture and history from a young age. At university, Ante specialized in economics and destination management. After graduating, he began working in the travel industry from the bottom up - first as busboy, dishwasher and then a waiter at some of the best Hvar restaurants learning all about service, quality and destination management at the best hotels on the island. When he decided to start his own firm, Ante combined his personal life-long experiences on Hvar with family friends who are local winemakers, boat owners, olive growers, guides, fishermen, museum custodians, charismatic writers and university professors. In the past five years, Ante has worked with more than one hundred large groups and hundreds of individual, private travellers. “To me, it doesn’t matter if you are a corporate executive or a family on holiday - our goal is that each and every client receives “maximum satisfaction” or we haven’t done our job”.
