The Island of Hvar, King among the Dalmatian islands, has been known since ancient times for its important strategic and nautical location, its cultural and natural resources and for its literature. Due to the mild climate (warm winters and pleasant summers) Hvar plays host to a large number of guests, scientists and chance travelers who are drawn to it by its unspoiled and opulent Mediterranean nature, fresh fish and distinguished wines.
Jelsa, situated in the central part of Hvar, is a welcoming place, pleasing to the eye and ready to receive any guest or traveller. Jelsa borders with the two highest peaks on the Island – St. Nikola on the west and Hum on the east. On the southern side there are three mountains – Vrh, Samotorac and Gozd, while Burkovo hill shields the northern side from the cold, northern winds.
Rozata (traditional cakes) can be taken with the taste of prosecco, a sweet wine product. The variety of dishes prepared according to traditional recipes, olive oil and high quality wines are the challenges that will guarantee you an unforgettable gastronomic experience.
Alongside the top-quality and quality Plavac wines, there are also white wines and prosecco (dessert wine made from dried wine grapes) produced on the island of Hvar. For this we can thank the esteemed winemakers who cherish the tradition of their fathers and of the island, and invest not only their enthusiasm and effort, but also their knowledge in oenology.
