A wonderful half-day swimming, wine-tasting and island sightseeing by speedboat –an exclusive Hvar Tours program!
Because Hvar Wine Tours is a local agency, we know every inch of this island, every vineyard. And for those who want to experience the magic of Hvar wines in the context of this gorgeous island, our Waves and Wines Tour will make you fall in love with Hvar forever. Much more than a wine tour, Waves and Wines is unique in its concept, combining speedboat transfers along some of Hvar’s less dicovered coastline, world class wine tasting and food, as well as plenty of time to swim and sunbathe. Discover coves most tourists never hear about, swim in one of the clearest seas in the world, and taste award-winning wines in an underwater cellar. Hvar at its most complete!
Our speedboat will leave Hvar Town and cruise along the islands on our way to the south shore, passing through the lagoons of Malo Zaraće, Velo Zaraće, Dubovica, Red Rocks and Lučišće. Our destination is Sv. Nedelja and the cellar of Croatia’s famous wine making pioneer, Mr. Zlatan Plenković. On our way to Sv.Nedelja we will stop at one of the lagoons, or beneath the craggy rocks and cliffs for a short 30 min swim break…refreshed after swimming, we will continue to the dock at the Plenkovic Bilo Idro(“White Sail”) restaurant and its undersea wine studio – exhibit hall! There you will be served 4 courses of wine, paired with local delicacies (like amazing marinated prunes, delicious smoked ham, and local cheeses).
Plenkovic wines are renowned not only here in Croatia but throughout Europe. Enjoy Zlatan Pošip, recently awarded the prize as SE Europe’s Best White Wine and other varietals. After our tasting, we will move upstairs to sit outside on the patio to enjoy the gorgeous view of the island’s south hill vineyards. And there’s more! Now it’s time to re-board our speedboat and cruise back to the Paklinski island archipelago. We’ve selected three different stunning bays where you can spend time to swim, sun and picnic; or if you wish, enjoy an optional lunch at one of Croatia’s most amazing sea food “catch of the day” restaurants. When you prefer we’ll come fetch you and your fellow passengers for the quick speedboat trip back to Hvar Town!
