HVAR WINE TASTINGS – DIVINO – HVAR – 07.08.2023. 9PM- in front of Loggia (hotel Palace)

In the fundamental role that food has always assumed in the history of every civilization, a primary place belongs to wine, especially in the lands bordering the Mediterranean basin.

Only to the wine are attributed the sacramental meaning and even thaumaturgical powers, as well as its own independent life, exalting the irrational aspect of communication, of the daily or festive ritual, of which wine has been the “high priest” for centuries.

Let us take you to this magical world of wine with a glass of Hvar wine in your hand while listening to verses inspired by wine throughout the centuries!

Cerealia comes to Hvar island – 1&2 Sept 2015 – Stari Grad

We are honoured to announce the first in a series of reciprocal visits in cooperation with Italian organizations. This year’s visit to Rome, as part of a tour “Presentation of the island of Hvar, Hvar culture and wine” organized by the Croatian Embassy in Rome, has resulted in cooperation with Festival Cerealia. Cerealia is a festival dedicated to cereal grains such as wheat and barley, and the idea comes from ancient Rome. http://www.cerealialudi.org/



This event promotes the cereals of the Mediterranean basin, and each year includes one partner country, to encourage cultural exchange. This year it is Croatia, in previous years Cyprus, Greece …

Cultural pluralism has been a permanent feature of the Mediterranean since ancient times. The social and economic value of grain is enormous. Cerealia want to spread the knowledge and awareness of the value of the soil and indigenous cultures, to renew ties between the producers and the consumers’ tables, even to revive old customs and traditions, that are based on respect for the earth and its fruits.

Cerealia will continue their cooperation with Croatia this year by visiting the island of Hvar. In Stari Grad on trg Škor, 01.09.2015 (Tuesday) there will be a number of different cultural entertainment events.

At 8 pm we will have a performance by dance theatre M.Th.I. http://www.mthi.it/ called Four Elements, with Paola Sarcina (artistic director of the Festival Ceralia), Diana Forlani and Stefania Toscano. The event continues with an exhibition of the art of bread prepared by the legendary Roman bakery “Panella, l’arte del pane“, where visitors will be able to see bread made in the shape of famous Roman monuments such as the “La Bocca della Verità”.

Afterwards, there will be Tasting of Hvar wines, accompanied by a musical performance by Rade Šolaja.

On the second day, 02.09.2015 (WEDNESDAY), the exhibition of bread will move to the Agency for the Management of the Stari Grad Plain, where it will be on show until 17.09.2015, along with an exhibition of photographs of Roman villas of the Stari Grad Plain. The opening of the two exhibitions will be marked by a presentation by archaeologist Mark Matković called “Wine and wine-growing on the island of Hvar in ancient times”. The Agency Director Francesco Duboković dipl.ing.agr. and our guest Paola Sarcina, artistic director of the Festival Ceralia will tell us more about the two exhibitions.

Hvar is undoubtedly the Island of Wines, for more than 24 centuries, as the president of the “Hvar winemakers” Ivana Krstulović Caric, dipl.ing will tell us.

At this event, get to know the period of Roman rule and their customs related to bread and wine!

Welcome! Dobrodošli!

This summer, Hvar Wine Tasting once again comes to the island’s village squares. On Tuesday, 15 July, 2014 at 9pm, you will be able to taste Hvar wines in Vrboska, down by the beautiful stone bridges in the Podva area.

Vrboska is one of the jewels of the island of Hvar, with art and architecture dating back to the 15th century, when it developed as the port of Vrbanj, with an attractive mix of renaissance, gothic and baroque styles.

While in Vrboska, before the Hvar Wine Tasting, you might like to visit the  Fisherman’s Museum to discover the rich history of fishing on the island. Or check out the nearby church of St Lawrence, where you can see art by Venetian and Croatian artists, while the impressive fortified church of St Mary of Mercy offers wonderful views from its roof.

This is going to be a crucial month for our Association. We have found enthusiastic and
professional partners that we will work together to set up the Wine Tourism on our Island. Our Partnership with Total Hvar and the Agencies is the first step toward achieving our goals of developing our Island as a Wine Destination.

Wine Journalists will be here on May 5, and we will show them a cross-section of our
Island of Wine, they will discover Hvar Wines, authentic and high quality, they will take a journey through the rich history of the Hvar Winemaking on Hvar Island and enjoy the beauty of the agricultural landscapes: Hvar Beaches, Terrace Vineyards, Starigrad Plain (Ager) jewelled by the lovely villages of our Island of Wine.

We are especially proud to have the oldest Plavac Mali vineyard on our Island, which
survived the American pest Phylloxera, a disease which destroyed European vineyards at
the end of the 19th century. We are proud to have 3 indigenous HVAR ONLY GRAPES; BOGDANUŠA, DARNEKUŠA, PARČ, to contribute to the diversity of the Wine World.

In May we will start the promotion of our Bogdanuša wines, together with Wine & Cheese Bar Paradox in Split and we will have activities on Hvar, such as Bogdanuša Workshops, Bogdanuša Night in Svirče. And many Hvar Wine Tastings this summer on our beautiful island squares.
