Dalmacija Wine Expo where wineries that are represented come from some of the best sites of South engulfed Dalmatia, Croatia. Tannin, silk and dust are three words that can represent wines from that region. Winelovers were immediately impressed by how many indigenous vine varieties grow there. Theatre of Dalmatian Varieties offer Pošip, Grk, Marašina, Babica, Dubrovačka Malvasija, Crljenak, Lasina ... All together it was possible to taste more than 450 wines.
