Brac has 2 wineries, one in the small town of Dracevica (Senjkovic Winery) and the other in Bol (Jako Vino/Stina). Both have very good wines and are a very special experience to visit. Be sure to try the wine/food pairing at Senjkovic. At Stina, ask to be shown the upper vineyards (a truly unique experience).
Wine Tasting & Tapas at Senjkovic Family Winery
Senjkovic is in a small village in the middle of Brac, where the Senjkovic family has been producing wines for over 100 years. Sasa and Magdalena, the master vintners, are introducing creative & innovative vineyard management techniques. One of their secrets is the method they use for planting and preserving moisture in the rocky soil of Brac.
Senjkovic is famous for their Plavac Mali wines, including a fabulous Rose, which sells before it is even bottled. Senjkovic produces about 65,000 bottles per year and only 3 or 4 labels. Wines: Bosso, Brocki Ric, Vino Spoza
Magdalena is also a gracious hostess and is as creative with her cuisine as with her wines. Her wine & food pairing is an extraordinary experience. Be sure to make reservations in advance.
Jako Vino Winery
Jako Vino is a recently refurbished winery in Bol (where the famous Golden Horn beach is). The winery was built in 1903. Calling its wine Stina (from the white Brac stone), it has some very good cuvee’s, Plavac Mali, white varietals and a very nice tasting room, where you can also buy packaged for travel.
Jako Vino has spent recent years renovating and replanting its old vineyards on the steep slopes above Bol. Ask them for a tour of the vineyards – you won’t be disappointed, but be prepared for a steep ride. Today Jako Vina produces about 11 labels from primarily three Dalmatian varietals; Plavac Mali, Pošip, and Vugava. including a nice Rose (Opal).
