There are 64 distinct grape types grown on Croatia’s sun-kissed islands, and over 800 wineries and 20,000 registered wine makers in the country. The viticulture and wine production of the southern Dalmatia islands of Hvar and Korčula dates back thousands of years, and is one of the most important aspects of the nation’s agriculture. You only need to admire the Mediterranean climate and the beautiful terraced vineyards that surround the picturesque villages that are dotted all over the rural landscape, to understand why wine is an integral part of Croatian history, heritage and culture.
