The ancient Greek writer Agatarhid declared:
The Wine from Vis, in comparison to every other wine, is better!
Although Vis is a small island, its wine stands head and shoulders above many others. Since days of antiquity, vineyards and wine growing has been the main economic force behind the island’s development. Vugava and Mali Plavac are the island’s best known wines. The wine fields are also rich with other acclaimed vintages like Kurteloška, Rukac, Palaruša, Carnjenko…
The wine tour that we prefer to do with our guests, is to take them on a trip around the island, a walk through fields of vines; Mali Plavac on sandy south side of the island and Vugava in the heart of the island. While they enjoy breathtaking landscape, a guide will tell them a story about Vis wine through the history and what impact it had on today’s winemaking.These trips we prefer to do in afternoon hours because of wine tasting after. Tasting is organized in two different wine cellars – it depends on how many guest are interested in and availability of wine cellar.
Description of a tour:
