Vislander Bugava

Vislander Bugava Wine, an harmonious wine that leaves a taste of honey in the mouth! The ideal amount of freshness and structure with good bottle resting potential. A golden-yellow colour with a golden sheen. A very complex aroma characteristic for Vugava, fruity aromas of stone fruits such as peach and ripe apricot, flow into a slightly smokey herbal note of Mediterranean plants and thyme.

It has a medium strength, well-rounded body with a balanced alcohol content that follows the structure of the wine with a soft and elegant freshness which is the result of the carefully selected time of harvest, and retains the fresher tone of the variety. In the mouth it is elegant and seductive with discreet notes of flower honey, persuasive and steadfast.

It is aged in stainless steel tanks for at least 100 days, and then in bottles for as long as possible.
Recommended serving temperature: 14 – 16 ° C
Ideal wine with Vis specialties such as: fried fish, boiled fish, seafood risotto, raw sea urchins and lobsters, beans and artichokes, octopus salad with potatoes, broth, gregada, orza (barley) with cuttlefish, frittata with wild asparagus and prosciutto, medium ripe sheep and goat cheeses with fresh figs and grapes

About the Producer
The Italian occupation ended, but the small island in the middle of the Adriatic was surrounded by British destroyers and gunboats, German ships, submarines and magnetic mines. In the air dogfights were raging. That year nobody dared to go fishing. Breakfast was chard, lunch was limpets and sea urchins, dinner was potatoes, but winter came and soon there was nothing to eat. The mainland was far, far away. Islanders lacked food, but since the times of Dionysius they had something else.
On Vis in 397 BC ancient Greeks founded Issa. That was their first colony on the eastern coast of Adriatic. It is believed that, at that time, in the area of Vel polje, they planted the first vineyard in our region. This was how islanders made wine in times of peace and of war, wine that even Agarthid called the best.
Centuries later, Vis residents grandma Franka and great granddad Jure Vojković poured their plavac into a bottle and set out to meet British soldiers, Englishmen, Scots, Welsh, Irish, the boys from the islands far away in the Atlantic, that protected the secret allied Air Force Base on Vis.

They exchanged their plavac with the soldiers, the fruit of the mighty Vis sun and a sandy soil, for food.

They traded plavac for a military meal.Since then, the islanders, Visans and Britons, exchanged wine for food, a dry military meal for Plavac, and in 1944 they won another victory. Victory over hunger and hopelessness.

A great victory on a small island in the middle of the Adriatic.
