Among the range of world-class Hvar wines are the organic wines from the Svirce Cooperative, also known as PZ Svirce.
They have an extensive range of wines, from very drinkable and affordable table wines, so some truly excellent bottles, none more so that their flagship Ivan Dolac Barrique 2008, which once again won organic gold as Biofach Mundus Vini in Germany last year, the second year in a row.
A nice marketing effort here from Badel 1862 – what is inside this award-winning bottle? Some rough translations:
Island of Hvar
Aged in oak barrels
Good with game and red meat, as well as Mediterranean delicacies
A slightly bitter taste with a full bouquet.
It is EXCELLENT. Why not try it for yourself and pop into the cooperative in Svirce, at the end of the village on the road to Vrisnik. It is hard to miss. Alternatively, PZ Svirce have shops in Jelsa, Stari Grad and Hvar Town, which are open during the season. Learn more on their website.
