The Tomic Vineyards: Picking Grapes on the Pakleni Islands

The Bastijana vineyards are located in various locations on Hvar, and one of the most interesting are the vineyards at Vlaka on the Pakleni Islands which produce the red and white Sveti Klement, named after the island where the grapes are grown.

The vineyard is just 1 metre above sea level, close to Roman ruins and a Roman mud bath. The process of harvesting the grapes and bringing them back to Jelsa is not a simple one, and it begins with a very early morning start and boat ride. Hvar TV came with the Bastijana workers last September for a day's picking. Watch it here.
