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.
