Carić winery, the autochthonous Hvar variety. A light, fresh, crispy white wine that was a part

of the religious feasts, as the name suggests. Beleca from the Tomić winery , has a rich and

sweet bouquet. It is produced from Pošip,the most important Dalmatian white variety, and

Bogdanuša. Both varieties create the perfect harmony in which Bogdanuša gives lightness and

freshness, and Pošip gives strength and body. Opolo rosé from Zlatan Otok winery – the most

important red Croatian variety, Plavac Mali, here gives an aromatic, fruity, summer wine. Plavac

2718 from the Duboković winery suggests the name of the number of sunny hours in the year

that the Island of Hvar refeives. The sun and heat are felt in each drop. This beautiful wine will

be followed by the snacks prepared by the Diocletian’s Wine House restaurant. You can also

taste these wines them from July 3 to July 10 in one of Winelife’s partner restaurants.

GUIDED TASTING “HVAR THE ISLAND OF WINE” IN JELSA

Hvar Winemakers’ Association  in cooperation with Vino.Like held a tasting under the name “Hvar Island of Wine” on 26.05.2017. (Hall of Jelsa Municipality, Jelsa). This event was conceived as a story about the specifics of the island of Hvar as a wine region, with an emphasis on the native Hvar varieties.

Hvar indigenous wines selection

The wines produced of the varieties bogdanuša, prč, mekuja and darnekuša were tasted and commented by Siniša Koceić and Alen Gulan, wine experts.  Wine tour guides, restaurant owners and others who work in wine tourism and gastronomy sectors were present and have learned more about these Hvar varieties, some of which are produced in very small quantities.

Mekuja variety can be found in different white blends of the Hvar Island wines, but only 100%

Mekuja Huljić

Mekuja HuljićMekuja is produced by OPG Teo Huljić. This white variety is grown in small quantities, and traditionaly on the borders of the vineyards planted with other varieties.

A red indigenous variety of Hvar Island, Darnekuša inspired  Jo Ahearne, one of the leading wine experts in the world, to make her first Hvar wine, Rosina.

This red Hvar variety grows on the higher parts of the island near the peak of St. Nikola and gives lighter wines such as Duboković Laganini.

Rosina & Laganini – two faces of the variety Darnekuša

PRČ

DSC_0162The most popular is the production of Bogdanuša whose crispy wines are ideal summertime wines, monovarietal wines of  Zlatan Otok – Plenković and PZ Svirče were compared.

Bogdanuša gives also great results when  blended with other white varieties as seen in the example of Tomić Beleca (Bogdanuša, Pošip)  and Carić Cesarica (Bogdanuša, Pošip, Maraština, Parč).

“This is just the first of the planned cooperation of our association with Vino.Like into  order to educate the parties in the chain of sales and service of Hvar wines and the wine lovers as well.

In early July, tourists and the citizens of Split,  will have the opportunity to learn more about Hvar wines through the event Vino u Sridu (lit.  Wine on Wednesday) , which will also be linked with the offer of Hvar wines in prominent Split restaurants. ” Said Ivana Krstulović Carić, dipl.ing.agr.
