Bogdanuša is an indigenous variety of the island of Hvar, and has been cultivated in the Agera area since ancient times. The white variety, which regularly produces quality wine, is appreciated. It is lush in growth and produces regular, good yields. Matures in 3rd period (a little later). It is used to produce varietal wine, but it also provides excellent combinations with other indigenous white varieties.
Her name means, God of the Day, which is associated with traditional wine drinking during church holidays. Carić's "Bogdanjuša" is a wine of sorts, light and fresh, with plenty of acid. Cold maceration lasting about 12 hours is important for the quality of these wines. Fermentation and aging are carried out in stainless steel drums to preserve freshness and aroma. These wines are bottled early in the spring and are ready to enjoy after only half a year
Food pairing: grilled prawns, fish, mussels.

The Carić family has been producing wine ever since, but with the establishment of the Vino-Hvar company d.o.o. they start to produce their own wines, known as CARIC WINES. Vineyards and wineries are just as important a part of their business. They cultivate about 5 ha of vineyards in different locations of the HVAR VINEYARD, while a smaller part of the grapes are purchased from subcontractors. They cultivate several autochthonous varieties, such as Plavac mali, Bogdanjuša, Kuč, Marašina, Darnekus and Posip. Each wine has its own story, from vineyards to wineries to their names. Their product range consists of 8 wines, each of which can find something for themselves, from everyday table wines to top quality ones that are drunk on special occasions. The original label was designed by famous Croatian painter Edo Murtić. Murtic's designs were redesigned by renowned Zagreb designer Nenad Dogan.
