    Itinerary day by day:

    Day 1: Saturday  ŠOLTA
    Check in after 14:00 in Split and sailing to island Šolta that is only 10 miles from Split, but it could be on a different planet; it is modest, peaceful, underdeveloped, barely populated, unspoilt thus far. Serene Dalmatian islands can escape attention for only so long, however.


     
    At one end of the island, the fishing village of Maslinica has had its outlook changed by a millionaire makeover of its marina 
    and  castle (now an ultra-expensive hotel).
    At the other end, on a hilltop, something of rarer cultural significance. In the limestone village of Gornje Selo, a pioneer  winemaker called Vicko Kastelanac has shifted his attention from fine olive oils to even finer heritage wines.
    For this is the godfather of Dobricic, the varietal parent - alongside Crljenak ("Original Zin") - of Dalmatia's most bought wine, Plavac Mali. Where Vicko leads, others will follow and Solta may have its prosperity, yet still its peace. Tasting and dinner in Kaštelanac vinery. Overnight.
