Jelsa is the famous town of wine on the island of Hvar, an island with a proud 2400-year wine tradition.
The island once had some 5700 hectares of vines under cultivation, and today that number is just 280, but the Hvar wine story is undergoing a renaissance in recent years, and Bastijana is proud to play its part.
The latest great development in the town of wine is the opening next week of the first wine bar/restaurant in Jelsa - Artichoke - which is sure to be a great addition to tourism in Jelsa. It will also be the first place in Bastijana's home town where the Tomic range can be tasted by the glass outside the winery itself.
