Beyond gourmet – Hvar’s most authentic, no menu, wine paired experience

Hvar’s most authentic, no menu, wine paired experience

There are a lot of wonderful restaurants on Hvar, but there’s no place like home.
And on Hvar, home is the Lacman Family Winery in the hilltop village of Selca.
Although the winery has a complete chef’s kitchen, it’s not a restaurant and there is no menu.

For the fortunate few, several times a week, the winery hosts a limited number of guests, (minimum 2, maximum 12), to enjoy an authentic home-cooked 4 course dinner paired with some truly gorgeous wine.

Beyond gourmet, the actual meal is determined by Ante Lacman, his mama Lina (whose legendary jams & stews are often part of what’s being prepared), wife Mare and friends based on the season, the freshness, the weather and their sheer inspiration.

Maybe it’s something exquisitely simple, like fresh grilled, line-caught tuna; baby artichokes with beans with peas or something more exotic like seafood lasagne terrine with a dreamy goat milk bechamel sauce or legendary “janjetina umido”(young lamb from the Dalmatian hinterland( slow-cooked with Lacman red wine in a mud dish served/seasoned with the aged Pag island sheep cheese—all lovingly prepared by family members who learned how to cook at their grandma’s knee.

Every savoury dish is then beautifully paired with Lacman wine, which has quickly established itself as one of the island’s most innovative boutique producers.

Using traditional grape varieties like bogdanusa and kuc, all Lacman wines are produced based on ecologically sustainable principles and knowing the exact origin of everything that goes into every bottle.

With an annual production of around 2.500 bottles and not sold in any store, Lacman wines are produced without compromise, as naturally as possible.

This means taking the time to produce the highest quality wine without regard to production demands; using the least amount of additives, natural yeast, unusual fermentation processes and unique storage techniques.

Hand-crafted and hand-filled, even Lacman’s distinctive wine labels, designed by Ante and Mare’s daughters, are hand-applied!

While you are here, you will have the rare opportunity to enjoy all the fruits of this remarkable young winey—from their unique rose, called Moča, to the richness of their Lacmanuša, a long macerated bogdanuša, Dobro and Predobro, both made from the island’s indigenous plavac mali grapes and grown only on Hvar’s premier steep southern slopes.

Experiencing a wonderful 4-course meal prepared just for you, with glorious wine, sitting in a boutique hilltop winery surrounded by the family whose name is on the bottle—beyond gourmet!
