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

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%
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 is a variety of origin from the area around Sućuraj, today is produced by wineries Pinjata and Vujnović. Prč is known as a white variety that can survive extreme climate and soil conditions. His muscat taste distinguish it among other Dalmatian varieties.
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. President of the Hvar Winemakers’ Association.

The Hvar Wine Tastings are events organized by Hvar Winemakers’ Association and (TZ) of the Island (TZ Općine Jelsa, TZ Stari Grad, TZ Vrboska). During these events we were meeting various interesting people from the world of wine. In addition to this nice music accompanied the events and it naturally created great vibes and celebratory mood among the people. Our guests tremendously enjoyed our wines and enthusiastically talked to each other.
In this way many guests, tourists and other winelovers meet new friends including the Hvar winemakers. We are truly honoured to have hosted a lot of wine writers, bloggers, winemakers, wine distributors and other winelovers at these events. This type of interaction and engagement made us feel very special and we are looking forward to continue working in this way and promoting our island of wine in the future!
Dušan Jelić (Wines of Balkans), Alen Gulan (Vino u sridu), Diedrik Swart & Mario Pranić (Croatiangrapes), Boris Mucina (Meiningers Sommelier Magazine), Marco Trasente (Wine Fredane) are just some of the wine friends that we met this summer…
This year, wine journalists are visiting us, organized by Festival Zagreb VINOcom, being held for the 9th year in Zagreb’s Esplanade Hotel (28.-29. 11. 2014.). Immediately before the Festival, a group of 29 journalists will visit several Croatian wine regions, including the island of Hvar.

The program will include visits to wineries: Pinjata in Vrboska, Plenković – Zlatan Otok in Sv. Nedjelja, and PZ Svirče in Svirče.

What will the wine journalists write about Hvar – Island of Wine? We shall find out soon!
This week we started harvesting the plavac mali from our island’s south slopes!
The steep southern slopes, bathed in sunlight and sea breezes, are Hvar’s most famous vineyards, extending from Zavala, Medvid Bod, Ivan Dolac and Jagodna to Sv. Nedjelja.
Despite the harsh climate, grapes from the “Hvar Beaches” are of very good quality!
The most famous wines from these positions have evocative names such as Ivan Dolac (PZ Svirče i Vujnović), named after the village famous for its beautiful pebble beaches, Plovac Ploški (Carić), meaning “Plavac from the beach“, Medvid (Duboković) named after the Medvid Bod, a hidden beach maybe the most beautiful of all, which once was home to the Mediterranean monk seal.
Or they may simply be named Plavac, as in Plavac mali barrique (Tomić) or Zlatan Plavac (Plenković).
Ovaj tjedan počela je berba plavca malog s južnih padina našeg otoka.
Strmi vinogradi, okupani suncem i morskom arijom, najpoznatiji su hvarski vinogradi, pružaju se od Zavale, preko Medvid Boda, Ivan Dolca i Jagodne sve do Sv. Nedjelje.
Unatoč nepovoljnim klimatskim uvjetima, grožđe sa “Hvarskih plaža” odlične je kvalitete!
Najpoznatija vina s ovih položaja nose imena Ivan Dolac (PZ Svirče i Vujnović), po istomenom selu poznatom po lijepim šljunčanim plažama, Plovac Ploški (Carić), što znači “Plavac iz Plaže”, Medvid (Duboković) po Medvid Bodu, skrovitoj i možda najljepšoj plaži od svih, nekada utočištu sredozemne medvjedice. Ili jednostavno plavac kao Plavac mali barrique(Tomić) ili Zlatan Plavac (Plenković).
Od 10. do 12. kolovoza 2014. u Montefredane pokraj Avellina, prekrasnog mjesta 60 km južnije od Napulja održava se vinski festival Wine Fredane, na kojem će se predstaviti vina članova Udruge “Hvarski vinari”.
