What you'll do

THE WINE STORY - This year we will focus on wine - simple, homemade, totally unpretentious wine. My family is making this sweet nectar for 10 generations and to us, wine tells the story of love, family and life. In a short walk, I will show you my favourite places of Dol, a small island village where we live. While visiting my house, a 400-year-old castle, we will taste the wine and everything connected with it - rakija, kvasina and prošek and have a small workshop where we will learn how to do "unforgivable" - mix wine with water.
Other things to note
I am on island BRAČ, not HVAR!
Both islands have village named Dol. My Dol is on island Brač. Hvar and Brač are not well connected, so it is very important to check where are you before booking!

My name is Ivana and, together with my family, I run agrotourism in village Dol. Throughout the year we grow vines, olives and vegetables, and in summer we open our door for guests. Our house is a 400-year-old castle and since I was a kid I do tours to many curious tourists. I love my village and my Island and that is why extended tour by showing the whole village.

Our story is a story about Kaštil Gospodnetić in beautiful village Dol. It is an old caste we turned into a home 300 years ago. We will walk through the house, visit different areas, from Renaissance, Baroque to Art Nouveau, talk about the history and taste wine.

Such a special experience and great contrast to a beach holiday. The food and wine is amazing and the portions very generous. Would definitely recommend :-)

Ivana’s tour of Dol and stories of her families history, house, and wine making traditions were a great way to spend an afternoon!!! The explanation of the village of Dol, its location on the island, the stone architecture , and religious aspects were One of my favourite things I’ve done this vacation. It was wonderful to get to stop and learn about a village instead of just driving by quickly and taking a couple of pictures. My teenage boys who weren’t quite as interested in history and wine were able to sit at her family’s castle/restaurant and enjoy ice cream and a lovely lamb and pea lunch while they waited. We learned about the 2 family wines and many ways to consume plavac Mali Including one of my new favourites which is milk and red wine Mixed making a weirdly delicious concoction. Definitely go and listen to the stories and enjoyed the wines, Olive tapenade, fresh bread, and olives and if you have time stay for a meal and order the octopus Peka (2 hours in advance)

The Kaštil is easy to find as there are well visible signs. Ivana wellcomed me warmly with a homemade Grappa. Than we started the walk around the village, up to the old houses and the small church Sv. Petar. Ivana made varous stops and told stories about life in the past and presence. It was veeeery interesting. She answered to all my many questions. I a am still excited that I found this excursion. It was definitely worth the ride of 30 min. in spite of the heat. At the end of the walk, I was offered sone if their home made and of local products, such as wine, bread, cheese, their delicious oliveoil, nuts and olives. It was plenty, enough for having had a full lunch :-). I can truely recommend this event to everybody who is able to walk around on stony paths.

Ivana was a fantastic host and knowledgeable guide to the village of Dol and Croatian wine making. Her personal touches and story telling made us feel immediately welcome. The walk through Dol was leisurely and full of history. Our time at her family’s home including learning about and tasting her family’s wine was very enjoyable! Highly recommend this experience!
