pronounced: vu-ga-va

The origin of Vugava is unknown, but it is considered to be a local and very old varietal and its appearance can be traced back to ancient times. Apart from Plavac mali it is the most mentioned Dalmatian varietal in international guides and atlases but its glory is disproportionate to today’s massmarket interests. The reason lies in the fact that it most often reaches the market in the traditional form, with very high sugar content and overripe aromas, the characteristics not currently ‘in’. It is cultivated exclusively on the island of Vis.
