Ukupni pobjednik ocjenjivanja „2. JELSA SUMMER WINE TASTING“ – Plovac Ploški Barrique 2013, vinarije Carić

U Jelsi se i ove godine održalo veliko ocjenjivanje hvarskih vina, 2. Jelsa Summer Wine Tasting, u subotu 29.8. 2020., na inicijativu TZ općine Jelsa, u organizaciji udruge Hvarski vinari i projekta ocjenjivanja Vinske zvijezde. Iako je zbog aktualnih epidemioloških mjera otkazana Fešta vina, jedno od najdugovječnijih slavlja vinu na Jadranu, umjesto nje TZ je osmislila Tjedan hvarskih vina u kojem se lokalna vina nude po popularnim cijenama u restoranima, konobama i barovima.

I na ovogodišnje ocjenjivanje 2. Jelsa Summer Wine Tasting, bili su pozvani lokalni vinari, članovi udruge „Hvarski vinari“, s vinima izvorne sorte bogdanuše, cuvéeima s bogdanušom i vinima od sorte plavac mali, kako bi se naglasila važnost izvornih sorti i potaklo vinare da više pozornosti posvete i bijelim hvarskim sortama.

Dodjela priznanja najboljim vinarima održala se u baru Prošperin, gdje su nazočni vinari i gosti mogli kušati sva vina koja su bila prijavljena na ocjenjivanje. Ovogodišnje je ocjenjivanje pokazalo napredak u kvaliteti (visini ocjena) hvarskih vina, što je i bila želja organizatora – da svaki vinar, prema osvojenim bodovima na ocjenjivanju naslijepo, realno vidi kvalitetu svojih vina i pokuša je podignuti, svake godine na višu razinu, kako bi se i kvaliteta vina na cijelom otoku podigla te istodobno pojačala svijest o zajedništvu i važnosti podrške hvarskih vinara – jednih drugima.

WINE WEEK JELSA 26.08 – 06.09. 2020.

“While on the island of Hvar, drink Hvar wines” is is the slogan of a new event that takes place in the heart of the island of Hvar, in Jelsa town and the surrounding villages.

After it was decided that the traditional Wine Fest could not be held due to the epidemiological measures, we quickly thought of a new way of promoting our local wines which will be in accordance with the current situation. From the 27th of August until the 6th of September there will be a ‘Wine Week’ – While on the island of Hvar, drink Hvar wines.” says Marija Marjan the director of the Tourist Board of Jelsa.

This event is organized by Tourist Board of Jelsa in collaboration with the  restaurants and wine bars and the Hvar Winemakers’ Association  (Hvar Otok Vina).

The guests can enjoy in special prices of Hvar wines and discover richness of Hvar island’s wine production.

Hvar island is home of indigenous varieties such as Bogdanuša, Drnekuša, Prč, Mekuja, Kuč and many more are grown  on island, like famous Plavac Mali, Pošip, Maraština and others.

“The richness of production comes from the fact that Hvar island has  a very  dynamic landscape. Its mountain ridge extends from east to west for 68 km, making Hvar the longest of all the Croatian islands. On the south , the ridge is creating very steep vineyards. In the northwestern part of the island, the ridge transitions into hills among which are villages surrounded by terraced vineyards, finally becoming a fertile plain at sea level, the site of Hvar’s first settlements Starigrad Plain (UNESCO site).
This phenomenon is creating different microclimates that  are giving   us various possibilities in wine production.” says the president Ivana Krstulovic Caric, dipl.ing.agr.

During te wine week Wine Stars Competition will be organized, and we will find who are the winner for 2020 of the best wines of  Plavac Mali,  Bogdanuša and blend with Bogdanuša.
