    Lovely video Tara, showcasing some really exciting wines. I recently visited Croatia for the first time (Dubrovnik) and the Dalmatian wines there were fantastic, although I only tried the reds.

    I’m returning next summer to Dubrovnik, so I hope to try some of the Grk!

    Cheers!

      Thanks David! Very exciting that you’re heading to Dubrovnik next summer, but don’t wait until then to try Grk :)

    Thoroughly enjoyed your video Tara, Croatia is very close to my heart and the wines in the various regions are some of the best in the world.
    Fantastic reds I am not a white wine drinker but will give Grk a try next summer.

    Cheers,
    Petra.

  3. Great info on croatian wines. Just wanted to mention there is wine which just recently went to market. It is called Stina (Croatian/Dalmatian for stone), so maybe you would be interested in checking it out. It is a wine from small town Bol, island of Brac. Wines from Hvar and Brac are very well known in Europe because of the islands’ rich soil, lots of sun hours and slopes towards the south, which is perfect for breeding great wines.
    Aside from the fact that the wine is delicious, it has also won European award for most original brand in wine industry last year. Keep up the good work, love your blog!

      Thank you for your comment! I’m familiar with Stina – they’re lovely wines. I especially like their fun, seemingly blank labels – they catch the eye and the wine captures the imagination :)
