Price: 50 kn in the cellar
Sun-burnt greens, sage and immortelle.
What seems “domestic” is not necessarily only from Vis or Dalmatian at all, but traditional.
Dry saltiness, hard rocky saltiness that stays after a sip and persists.
Truly, the drinkable whole forces a new sip, while the numb palate still licks salty stone. Blurring the difference between addiction and sweet agony.
Exposed the entire day to the shimmering sea, drunk with waves and air... too much for the unaccustomed tourist, food for the engrained islander, restlessness which he runs from and he returns to.
Similar is the Vis wine. Not necessarily Vugava. Equally authentic is the Voščice white, from the vineyards of Maraština and Kurtelaška on one of the same-name positions of the karst field of Vis - Visočica.
