StariGrad.hr reports that after successfully purchasing and obtaining the use permit, the main project will be drafted, the realization of which will once again make Vinarija an important driver of the Stari Grad’s economic development.
The Vinarija revitalization project is being developed in cooperation with the Ministry of Agriculture and the Ministry of Culture. Its goal is to sustainably unite the use and promotion of the most valuable natural and cultural resources in this area.
The new facility will be managed by the Stari Grad Plain Management Agency, which will get a new headquarters and an additional segment of its business in Vinarija. In this sense, new spaces and facilities have been conceived within the Vinarija building, which will become a central tourist point for visitor tours and the presentation of the overall historical heritage of Hvar Island.
There, tourists and visitors will be able to taste and buy local products from local producers who will bring their wines to Vinarija, bottle them, brand them, store them and sell them.
In addition to wine, the production of essential oils and herbal products is also planned, which will also be sold on the shelves of local product stores located within the facility.
The new production and presentation complex will be a significant added value in the tourist offer and valuable help to local producers who will place their products under a unique and recognizable brand in one place.
During the development of the project, workshops will be organized where all interested parties will receive detailed information about the implementation of the project, and the developer will provide valuable feedback to help define the final details.
The main project will be prepared to meet the main objectives of the Vinarija and Stari Grad Plain revitalization and the EU funding project requirements, as it will be followed by applying for EU funds and providing the financial basis for successful implementation.
