Wine Strategy still Burning Rubber

Very similar atmosphere - arty feeling comparing to last year’s first Zagreb Wine Gourmet Weekend.  I think  the Glyptotheque - the Croatian Academy of Arts and Sceinces is great place for starting spring presentation of wines. What I did like: opening ceremony was supported by the highest policy; Head of State Ivo Josipović, Minister of Tourism Darko Lorencin and Mayor of Zagreb Milan Bandić. They are aware how important is the wine branch. I also liked the choice of food in the beautiful green garden with vintage chairs and coffee tables. What I did not like: winemakers were not on the show when the event started! Impression of the wines: a lot of good wines. I was focused on Croatians.

There were 100 wineries, mostly from Croatia, but also from Slovenia, Serbia, Macedonia, Monte Negro, Italy, Spain, Austria, France and Bosnia and Herzegovina.

My TOP:

On the show were also TOP Slovenian wine makers:
Belica, Dveri Pax, Edi Simčič, Štekar, Kupljen, Marjan Simčič, Verus, Radgonske Gorice, Verus, Tilia, Valter Sirk, Vinakras, Vinska klet Metlika
