Vineyards in Paradise: An Aerial Tour of Zavala

What to expect from a wine whose grapes are grown on Europe's sunniest island, and whose morning view is a gentle sloping one down to the Adriatic? 

The fabled vineyards of southern Hvar, home to some of the best Plavac Mali, the local powerful red, which is related to Zinfandel. 

And while Sveta Nedjelja, home of Zlatan Otok, may well be the best known wine destination on the southern coast, the vineyards of nearby Zavala are enticing indeed. 

Local resident Jadran Lazic posted this wonderful aerial video earlier, made by Jaksa Kuzmicic.
