Hvar – the island of wine since 384 BC

Even though research shows that vine was grown on Hvar by the Illyrians it was the arrival of Greek colonists in 384/385 BC that permanently marked our island, in a cultural and historic as well as an economic way.
Inhabitants of Pharos divided the Stari Grad field, more famous as Ager, originally called Chora, in 73 equal parcels and assigned them to immigrant families. That was what started the story of Hvar as – the wine island.
According to the Roman writer Apian, vine from Hvar was a highly sought after commodity on the Illyiric area.
