After a visit to the cheese dairy, our journey will take us to the city of Bol. Speaking touristically, the island of Brač is mostly known for its beach Zlatni rat in Bol, which is included on the list of the ten most beautiful beaches in the world. Covered with fine sand, it has a triangular shape with a prominent peak in the sea, the direction of which depends on the direction of the current. Because of favorable winds, Bol’s beach is popular with windsurfers.
But, historically speaking, the island is famous for it’s 2-millennium stone production. It is well-known that the stone for the construction of Diocletian’s palace was quarried here.
The specificity of island Brač, apart from the stony surface, is also in its height above sea level where vineyards have been planted. Apart from the stone, the long history of Brač has always been marked by the cultivation of grapevine, especially the Plavac mali variety. In the city of Bol you will visit wine cellar which produces high quality wines. This cellar was the first Dalmatian winemaking cooperative, and it was founded on May 15, 1901. The building was completed in 1903, housing the winemaking cooperative’s konoba (cellar) on the ground floor. Today, this building is among one of the most modern and best-equipped wine cellars in Croatia. Apart from the premises for grape processing and aging of wine furnished with the latest equipment, the cellar also contains a superbly designed wine tasting and sales area.
