Secret Dalmatia Blog - Travel Experiences in Croatia

This past summer I spent quite a bit of time on Vis and what to do but to explore and enjoy this spectacular island. One of my favorite discoveries was Aerodrom. It is gostionica or some sort of inn but now that term is rarely used as it is now almost archaic. Now you have wine bars, lounge bars…all sort of fancy stuff as we are, of course, fancy and modern. But Aerodrom is fancy. In a retro, “lost in the 1930s” type a way. And I love it.

This summer they opened late and were only serving their plavac and vugava wines. Both great! One can also purchase wine at Aerodrom as it is also a wine cellar. They were promising me some food but did not happen this year. For next year, I do expect something interesting. Something traditionally from Vis but with a modern twist.

Interior is beautiful. Decorated again in the style of the 1930s, it keeps telling the story of once great wine making tradition of Vis island. Now, only few wine makers are left… Aerodrom is also a wine cellar but the wine making facilities are located in the closed part of this traditional building.

Aerodrom got it’s name after a nearby WW2 air field in Plisko poje that was used by the Allies. The nearby fields were leveled to become an airport for US and British flying fortresses in the final months of the war. Later, wine making returned but the signal posts are still there keeping the memory alive. Now, Aerodrom is a perfect place for an evening getaway from the peak season crowds of Vis and Komiza.
