Wine is nothing without soul, and the philosophy at Bastijana is to live life to the full. There is no better ambassador of this philosophy than Andro himself, and his interests outside winemaking are extensive.
It is just over ten years since he took part in a fascinating project - to visit the island of Paros, whose inhabitans colonised Hvar in 384 BC - with fellow adverturers, Branko Kirigin, archaeologist and leader of the expedition, Aldo Čavić, Stari Grad Centre for Culture head-curator, captain Dean Roić from Hvar Adventure, Ante Žuljević, a junior researcher of the Laboratory for Bento at the Oceanography and Fishing Institute in Split, and Darko Šoša, a painter from Hvar. The expedition was followed by a Croatian National Television (HRT) team, and was guided by well-known researcher and alpinist, Stipe Božić.
It was a fascinating journey, with plenty of wine (a special Faros to Paros label for the expedition), which you can watch in the video below.
