Celebrate Tomic Beleca with Hvar's UNESCO Mediterranean Diet Tonight

Did you know that Hvar's diet has been officially recognised by UNESCO?

With such a healthy diet, based on quality olive oil and wine, it is perhaps hardly a surprise that Hvar, as well as six other locations on the Mediterranean, had its diet inscribed as UNESCO intangible heritage back in 2013, the fifth UNESCO heritage for this amazing island.

The Hvar Wine Association has decided to celebrate this event together with its partners, and a Festival of the Mediterranean Diet is currently taking place on the island, celebrating the Hvar story of wine and sardines. Tonight the action moves to Jelsa, with a wine tasting at St. John's Square, but not before you have the chance to enjoy a glass or two of Tomic Beleca, accompanied with some specially priced dishes for the festival at participating restaurants Me and mrs Jones, Taula and Spizza.

We are All Millennials: Andro Tomic at Opening of Pharos bayhill hvar hotel

No Hvar party is complete without Andro Tomic, and the Jelsa winemaker was a very contented guest at the recent opening of the newly refurbished Suncani Hvar hotel, Pharos bayhill hvar.

The former two-star hotel has undergone a 7 million euro makeover, and it is something of a departure for the hotel scene on the island, aimed at the millennial market.

It may be aimed at the younger crowd, but one thing remains the same - the quality of the wine on offer, and if you would like to try some of the Tomic range while staying at Pharos (or any other Suncani Hvar hotel this summer), ask your waiter, who will point out some of the Tomic favourites on the list. 

Tomic and Hvar Wine Tasting Tonight and Every Thursday Night in Jelsa Town Centre

A refreshing day at the beach, relaxing under the trademark Jelsa blue skies, a fine dinner in one of Jelsa's waterside and old town restaurants (perhaps washed down with a fine glass or two of Tomic wines...) - how to end another perfect day in Jelsa.

Thursday is Wine Day in Jelsa, and Tomic wines, in association with other members of the Hvar Wine Association are holding wine tastings every Thursday night in the picturesque old square of St. John, just off the main square. If you are walking along the waterfront, look out for the red carpet from the riva.

In addition to the opportunity to meet soe of the Tomic team and taste a range of Bastijana wines, there will always be live music. If you can't make it tonight, we will be there all summer until October, so don't forget that Thursday night is Wine Night in Jelsa. See you there!

A Big Day for a Big Wine: Veliki Plavac Mali into the Bottle

Our cheerful company this week again rolled up their sleeves and bottled 2700 liters of premium quality dry red wine "Veliki Plavac Mali" vintage 2011. That was the year that gave us exceptional quality grapes from southern positions of our island where old vines regulary are low on yields, but also give us top quality grapes in return.

Women on Wine (WOW) Meet Tomic Opolo Rose

The Croatian rose scene has become much more high profile in recent years, thanks largely to the efforts of the fabulous ladies from Women on Wine (WOW), whose annual Pink Day event in Zagreb has become one of the most eagerly anticipated events of the Croatian wine calendar.

A very pleasant evening in Zagreb last Thursday, as the ladies from WOW at a promotional event for Reviderm. Andro's daughter Janica presented the 2015 Opolo Nobile 2015 which is drinking very nicely. Why not come by our cellars in Jelsa and taste for yourself?

Drink Tomic Wines in a Game of Thrones Location: Vinski Podrum in Split!

It is one of the most impressive wine tasting locations on the cicuit, as well as being perhaps even better known as a filming location for Game of Thrones, and the Tomic team will once more be in action in the basement of UNESCO World Heritage Site Diocletian's Palace in Split on May 20-21, for the annual Vinski Podrum fair.

Doors are open from 13:00 - 21:00. Learn more about the event here, and we hope to see you there!

Andro Tomic and Jo Aheane MW: The Hvar Rose Dream Team in Zagreb

A wonderful day in Zagreb yesterday at the 4th Pink Day at Mimara, organised by the fabulous ladies from Women on Wine.

Andro was of course on hand with his Opolo Nobile, and he was photographed with one of the stars of the show, Master of Wine Jo Ahearne, who was presenting her Ahearne Rosina, made from 100% Darnekusa grapes, for the first time. Feedback has been outstandingly positive.

Jo shared this photo on her Facebook page with the following message:

"Andro Tomic and Ahearne Rosina - would never have been made without him and the Tomic family. Hvala puna."

Congratulations on this first successful public outing for Rosina, Jo, and we look forward to seeing you back at Bastijana very soon.
