Apart from offering you the opportunity to tour the production section of our winery, we also organize tastings in our wine cellar modelled after the ancient Roman dining rooms, which is why we have named it Triclinium. All our products are available for tasting. The wine tasting can be held in the Croatian or English language. Reservation in advance is required.
We set up this wine tour through our travel agency and it was well worth it. We had already been tasting their wines during the week but now it was really an opportunity to try them all. They give you a nice overview of their winery and then the tasting room is set up in an amazing cave like setting. They served some light snacks with the tasting and it paired beautifully. I love their Beleca and wish I could have brought home more of it. It's worth the trip for sure.

Vrboska has one of the more unusual churches that you’ll ever see – the church fortress of St Mary of Mercy has high walls, battlements and an impressive ravelin defending the front door. A ravelin is a triangular fortification or detached outwork, located in front of the innerworks of a fortress. Originally called a demi-lune, after the lunette, the ravelin is placed outside a castle and opposite a fortification curtain. The outer edges of the ravelin are so configured that it divides an assault force, and guns in the ravelin can fire upon the attacking troops as they approach the curtain. It also impedes besiegers from using their artillery to batter a breach in the curtain wall. The side of the ravelin facing the inner fortifications has at best a low wall, if any, so as not to shelter attacking forces if they have overwhelmed it or the defenders have abandoned it. This one is unique, having a build in water container for the defenders. Try to visit catching a violin concert at the end of the day. Unforgettable.

One of the largest parks in Dalmatia. The statue of Capt. Niko Duboković is here.
The park is surprisingly spacious, considering that the town is comparatively small. It is quiet and well-kept, there are some interesting statues. A small creek flows through the park and cools off the air in hot days. Very nice walks!

Believed to be the oldest structure on Hvar island, this church is first mentioned in historical records in 1331.

This is a quiet spot away from Jelsas harbour, walk by in evening on way to restaurent or in early morning. It is beautiful in sunset or sunrise.

I have visited this church twice while on Hvar Island. This last time they were doing some reconstruction.

We tasted eight different wines inside their wine cellar. We sat at a table nestled among wine barrels with a plate of cheese and bread. In addition to the wine, we also sampled some of their olive oil. We particularly liked the red wine choices---our favorite was the Medvjedica. We purchased a few bottles of that, as well as some of their olive oil. This was a wonderful introduction for us into Croatian wines, and for wine lovers, I highly recommend. The person who ran our tasting could not have been more pleasant.
