Winery Stina Vina

Variety Vugava

Bottle size 0.75 L
Production 3.500
  • Apricot
  • Grapefruit
  • Honey
  • Lemon

Stina Vugava is a very crisp and fresh wine with a lingering aftertaste of grapefruits and subtle aromas of honey and citruses. Stina is the only commercial producer of this variety on the island and they are steadily expanding their vineyards in order to bring this Viognier-like variety back into consumption. We may expect rich notes of apricot, ripe apple, citruses and biting acidity which will create the provisions for a serious and powerful white.

Made from grapes grown in vineyards within the Dalmatian island of Vis. Vugava is an indigenous grape variety with great potential. With the use of modern methods of Viticulture and Enology we are just beginning to discover its potential and what it has to offer. This wine has a fine discrete aroma, characteristic freshness and a balance that is even more evident with aging. The grapes comefrom old vineyards in the interior of the island Vis. Everythin in the vineyards is carried out manually, and the harvest is performed in the early morning in order to preserve freshness and flavor of grapes. It is considered a native variety from Vis Island, although there are some ideas connecting it to Brač. Vugava from Brač is pretty different from her Vis ‘counterparts’.

Since red and white grapes do not come at the same time because of the different maturation period, after processing, we have two of Prošek: ‘red’ (made from Plavac mali) with its richness, power and aromas of black, jammy fruit and ‘white’ (made from Pošip) with its characteristic sweetness and fruitiness. After half a year of keeping separate these two fractions are mixed and kept at least 2 years in wooden casks, where they are blended. Prošek rests in the bottle at least 6 months before launching on the market. Stina Prošek is a dessert wine, sweet, creamy while the scent reveals the full richness of dried fruit and sweet barrique notes.

  • Creamy dessert
  • Dried fruit
  • Pancakes

The winery is from the island of Brač, unique and famous for its white stone (Stina). Many famous Croatian poets, authors, sculptors and painters were born on Brač. Brač stone has always been a source of inspiration due to its beauty, but it is also a symbol of hardship when it comes to viticulture and viniculture. And that is where the inspiration for the name STINA comes from. In the Dalmatian dialect, this word means stone, the strongest symbol of the island of Brač. Stina Prošek is traditional Dalmatian dessert wine. Produced by the traditional method from dried grapes, prošek has a long tradition and history in Dalmatia, and was appreciated for its uniqueness and quality. The grapes are harvested late, when the bunches are slightly overripe and dried. It is made from Plavac mali and Pošip, red and white indigenous varieties spread on the southern slopes of the island. These vineyards are along the coast, angled toward the sun. Due to the particularities of terrain, all work in the vineyard is done by hand as well as harvest that is performed in several passes.

Full wine with ripe flavors, rich and layered scent. It has dominant aromas of tropical fruit, peach, Mediterranean herbs and vanilla. Composed acidity gives it a lovely balance and juiciness.

Indigenous Croatian variety Pošip is consider to be the white wine varieties with greatest potential. There is no tropical fruitiness like in regular Pošip 2013. At first, the smell is neutral, on the nose it reminds of the sea mixed with a touch of peach and apple. But, precisely in this discreet and primarily mineral flavor lies the very delicate core of the aged Pošip as a variety. In the mouth it shows that the taste is still developing.
