Tomic at Festa Vina Jelsa: Join Us Tonight, Great Atmosphere!

It is the final night of Festa Vina, the Jelsa Wine Festival, tonight, and the atmosphere in the Town of Wine is fantastic. A wonderful evening of entertainment for all the family last night, and the party went on late into the night, as it will tonight for the main and final evening.

Andro was taking things in his stride, entertaining friends with a little Beleca and Veliki Plavac Mali.

Just around the corner, Team Tomic were pouring the wines for tourists and locals alike.

Tomic wines can be found as part of the Hvar Wine Association tasting stands between the main square and the catamaran. Come and join us tonight - it will be a fine evening celebrating the best of Jelsa wine!

Pink Day Organisers Women on Wine Vote Tomic Opolo Nobile Best Croatian Rose

These are exciting times for the Croatian rose wine scene, with more and more quality roses coming to the market each year.

So much so in fact that a dynamic group of ladies and wine lovers formed an association five years ago called Women on Wine (WOW), with their main event each year being a great festival called Pink Day, a celebration of the rose wines of Croatia. It is an event which Bastijana is delighted to participate in, and we look forward to next year's edition.

WOW recently celebrated their fifth anniversary, and to honour it, they invited Restaurant Paradigma sommelier Roko Bekavac to a special tasting to find the best red, white and rose in Croatia:

The best rose is the Tomić Opolo Rose. “This rose won us over with aromas of ripe red fruits and fullness of body. It has a light, yet lovely bitter note,” the jury felt.

Festa Vina Jelsa: Join Us for the Biggest Wine Festival on the Adriatic

Jelsa is the town of wine on Hvar, and it has a proud wine tradition dating back centuries.

It also has the biggest wine festival on the Adriatic, a chance to celebrate with locals and try the finest wines from the island's producers, and as usual, Bastijana will be a proud participant in 2016.

Join us tomorrow evening in the pretty St. Ivan's Square just off the main square in Jelsa, for the regular weekly tasting of the Hvar Wine Association, including Tomic, for an evening of wine, live music and a wonderful Dalmatian atmosphere.

The biggest party of the festival will take place on Saturday, the biggest party of the year. What better way to celebrate than with a glass or two of Tomic wine? For more information about Festa Vina 2016, click here
