Due to the island’s seclusion and isolation, Vis has a unique charm that typifies ‘the Mediterranean as it once was.’ You will enjoy a fabulous wine-tasting experience at a family winery, the Lipanovic Winery, where you will sample some of the delicious local wines. Taste various great quality wines, from the ‘Babic’ red wine, with traces of dark berries, plums, figs, to the distinct spices to the refreshing ‘Posip’ white wine. Experience the traditional cuisine on the waterfront whilst enjoying the sunset over the Adriatic.
