We LOVE Hora Hvar: Organic Wine and Rakija

One of our suppliers is Hora Hvar, a farm located in Stari Grad on the island of Hvar. Today we are talking everything wine and rakija with Ana and Romana!

As well as growing a range of organic produce, Hora Hvar makes their own wine, which is known for its authenticity and quality. Croatia has more than 130 indigenous grape varieties; some of them are native to Hvar and are only grown on the island. The wines that we like to include in our BoozeBox are:

Bogdanuša is an ancient white grape variety that is indigenous to the island of Hvar, on Croatia’s west coast. Its name literally means “godsend,” and Bogdanuša wine plays a significant part in Croatia’s religious festivals.

Plavac Mali is one of Croatia’s best known grape varieties; it is also the most popular red wine grape grown along the coast of Dalmatia. Archaeological findings show that the grapes were grown on Hvar over 2500 years ago!
