What is It Like to Harvest Grapes on Hvar? Grape Picking on Sveti Klement

The journey to make a quality wine on Hvar is long, and one of the most important moments, of course, is the harvesting of the grapes. 

With its steep sloping vineyards, some of the finest Plavac Mali grapes are very labour-intensive to gather, but there are other challenges for collecting the grapes for the Tomic range. The popular red and white wines, Sveti Klement, come from the island of the same name, a boat ride from Hvar Town to the largest of the Pakleni Islands, where the vineyard is located. 

To see how the grapes are harvested on Sveti Klement, check out this 2012 report from Hvar TV on the Sveti Klement grape gathering - a wonderful day.
