Wine Tasting on Hvar

Get to know Hvar's 2,400-year history through its vineyards. The island has produced delicious varietals for centuries, starting with the ancient Greeks who first planted vines on Hvar in the 4th century BCE. The Stari Grad Plain is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and where you'll find most of the Greek and winemaking history. 

Wine in the region didn't stop with the Greeks. The Romans, Venetians continuously enhanced it, and even the Socialist era, when organic methods reigned (and won the island many gold medals for organic wine). One of the most famous varietals found on Hvar is Plavac Mali, a grape related to Italy's Primitivo and Zinfandel in the United States. It's believed that Plavac Mali is the original Zinfandel, and Hvar is home to the oldest Plavac Mali vineyard in the world. You'll also find several other beloved indigenous grapes on the island, including Bogdanuša, Posip, and Maraština.
