On Hvar, Europe's sunniest island, the foundations of viticulture were established as far back as the 5th century BC by the ancient Greeks. The vineyards of the Plenkovic Winery have occupied slopes that are up to 40 and 60 degrees steep on the southern coast of the island, on the Milna - Sveta Nedjela - Zavala axis. This is a region that is well away from the industrial centres and it can be considered as ecologically pure. The wine is made with the absence of any artificial fertilizers and entirely manual operations together with a low fruit yield of the vines (restricted to about 0.70 kg,) ensures Plenkovic's vine to be truely distinctive and unique in taste.
