The Wine Shops of Hvar: Where to Find That Perfect Bottle

Total Croatia News

More people are commenting on the quality of Hvar wines this year, and asking where they can buy them… 

“We had a LOVELY bottle of white the other night from the island. It was called Bog something,” said one of my favourite regular visitors to Hvar over a cold one at The Office.

“Bogdanuša. It translates as ‘a gift from God’ and its grapes are only produced on Hvar.”

“Bloody delicious it was. Where can we buy some?”

I am hearing this more and more this summer. Hvar wines seem to be that bit more accessible than before and tourists are become aware that there is some local quality to try. Thanks mostly to the efforts of the Hvar Wine Assocation who have done much to raise the visibility of the island’s wines in the last 12 months. So where can you buy them?

Hvar Town – Ivo Carić has a shop a Riva 17, just off the main waterfront. There is also a great selection of other island products. Mon – Sat: 09:00 – 23:00. Follow on Facebook
