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.

We had a great tour through Dol. We loved the stories Ivana told us about the history of Dol and the castle and about wine making. The wine and local cheese and food was delicious. We recommend this tour, While it learns you more about Brac.

Ivana hat es mit ihrem Charme und Witz geschafft, uns ihr süßes kleines Dorf und die Lebensumstände der Menschen vor Ort näher zu bringen. Sehr zu empfehlen!

We hebben een geweldige tijd gehad tijdens de tour van Ivana. Ze is een geweldige host en heeft ons veel mooie verhalen vertelt over het dorp en het huis van haar familie. De wijn is heerlijk en de hapjes zijn ook fantastisch. Absoluut een aanrader om heen te gaan! Tip om cash geld mee te nemen voor als je net als ons betoverd raakt van de wijn en olijfolie en dit wil meenemen naar huis.

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)
