If you’re looking to add a little extra something to your walks or hiking, a wine tour just might be what you need.

The island of Vis is famous for its wine, made here since the Greek and Roman times. In fact, wine-making sustained and supported the island’s economy all the way to the Second World War years. In the 19th century, during the Austro-Hungarian reign, Vis was one of the most important producers and suppliers of wine in the empire, with most of it exported to all of its regions and countries. It is no wonder that this period is known as the Gilded Age of viticulture of Vis, and the economic benefits were enormous. The city expanded during this time, with new public buildings and houses built on a regular basis.

You’ll agree that this makes for an impressive curriculum vitae when it comes to wine. This centuries’ worth of wine-making experience has given birth to ‘Vugava’ the best and most famous wine of Vis. This white wine is known for its full honey-like taste and is made from the vugava grapes, harvested in September. Its red wine counterpart and equal in quality is ‘Plavac’ is a well-known sweet red wine that will surely meet everyone’s expectations, no matter how high they might be.

You can trust the people of Vis to know how to make the best of enjoying life in the Mediterranean landscape, so follow their example and book a wine tour. It’s a fantastic way to explore the island’s countryside. You will be able to meet local vintners, see their wine cellars and taste their wine and other products, all this in some of the loveliest spots in the island’s landscape.

If you want to reward your taste buds and relax in the island’s way, you can book your tours in Komizha (Alternatura Tourist Agency) and the town of Vis (Vis Rent Tourist Agency, Paiz Travel Tourist Agency).
