A very nice piece of global PR for the winemakers of Hvar, as Conde Nast includes Croatia's premier island in its global list of wine regions to visit in 2017. Here is what they had to say:

Bonus: Many vineyards on the southern coast have spectacular Mediterranean views." Read the full article here.
