Winery 2: Medvid - Dubokovic & 2718 hours of sun in the bottle
The program continues with the meeting of the leading Croatian “garage” winemaker to taste wines that have become the most sought after in the country. The reason? You’ll taste what it's like to try ''2718 hours in the bottle”. Blind tastings will surprise you with their amazing flavours! Here in Croatia, Dubokovic wines have become a must-have in the finest restaurants, hotels and specialised 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, 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. 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 savour the subtle flavours 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.

Organized by

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”.
