The story of autochthonous Croatian grape variety Plavac Mali from the Island of Vis is about hard times during the WW2 when islanders would exchange Plavac Mali with British soldiers for food. During the lockdown, the Vis Island inhabitants had limited resources, and the Brits longed for peace-time pleasures. And that is why granny Frona and grandpa Jure swapped Plavac Mali for a field ration. It all took place in Vis Highlands, which inspired the name of the wine Vislander, as well as the label design in the aesthetics of topographic maps. The labels depict illustrated faces, made after old family photographs of winemakers, whose forefathers took part in this victorious exchange.
