It is one of the most beautiful islands on the planet - the sunniest in Europe, home to organised tourism in Europe and with the most UNESCO heritage of any island in the world.

AND it has fantastic wine!

Not only that, but Hvar's winemakers predominantly produce wines from indigenous grapes, several of which are only grown on Hvar.

Croatia Wine Map

For all of the various varieties, indigenous and imported, hundreds of winemakers and many different wine styles, Croatia can be divided into 4 major winemaking regions. Those are: Eastern Continental Croatia, Croatian Highlands, Istria and Kvarner Bay, and Dalmatia. We have written about those regions extensively, and we invite you to research them through our article on the regions, articles with more details written on specifics of wine-making in each of the Croatian counties and through our series of articles showing you the virtual wine maps for best-known wine regions in Croatia.
