Hvar Wine – from the sunniest island in Croatia

Hvar has a wine making history stretching back thousands of years - wine from the Dalmatian region of Croatia is considered amongst the best in the world. A key product of the economy, the grapes in Hvar flourish in the warm Mediterranean sun – the island receives, on average, an amazing 2697 hours of sunshine each year.

Hidden Croatia offers a range of fabulous hotels in Hvar for you to make the most of your stay on this delightful island.

Vineyards planted thousands of years ago in the valleys of Hvar have resulted in the island becoming home to many native varieties of white wine – with exotic names such as Bogdanuša, Cetinka and Mekuja. Much of the cultivating of grapes is still done by hand in the traditional way. Wine tasting during a stay on the island is a great way to explore the many different flavours, as well as appreciating the beauty of the interior of Hvar.

Hotel Adriana is located right in the heart of the marina in medieval, pedestrianised Hvar town, and is a lavish place to stay during your break on the island. With cutting edge design and luxurious suites, the Hotel also arranges group tours for guests who would like to sample the wine of the island at an authentic konoba (traditional restaurant).

Three night stays at the Hotel Adriana starts from £657pp. Price based on two adults sharing a superior double bedroom on a bed and breakfast basis. Price includes scheduled return flights from London Gatwick to Split and return transfers.
