Country of Good Vines: Countdown to Wines of Croatia

The Wines of Croatia Tasting I'm hosting is less than two weeks away and I've been hearing from people near and far who want to attend. I'm not kidding about that. The interest in Croatian wine is seriously intense! It seems everyone wants to know more about them.

As I mentioned before, I made a quick visit to the Istrian peninsula of Croatia a few years ago around this time of year in August. But I did not get to stay too long. You must have reservations in Croatia when holiday season is in full swing! 

Next time I visit Croatia I will plan ahead and allow plenty of time to explore the vine lands in depth. Until then, here is a brief slide show of what I saw in Umag.  NOTE: For a larger view or if the video does not appear below on your screen you can view it here in the Annex.

  4. "Tartufi" are truffles, and they can be dug out in Istria. But being from the Northwestern Croatia, I feel like I have to be a local patriot and invite you to explore our wine region as well - Continental Croatia. I hope you'll like it!
