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.
