During the past week we held our very first wine tasting evening at Borough Market. Croatian wine remained little known abroad despite winning numerous top industry awards over the past few years. This is slowly changing as its vinous pleasures are quite rightly coming into light and this is something we want to celebrate.
Did you know the famous Californian Zinfandel grape is actually originally a Croatian grape?
The evening offered the opportunity to taste a range of 8 different Croatian wines carefully selected which include grape varieties and blends from across different regions in Croatia. (All wines now being served in top London restaurants.) We had an expert sommelier introducing the wines and leading us throughout the evening. There were also tasty canapés made from some of our delicious organic cured meats, truffles and cheeses to be enjoyed.
I hope everyone who attended had a great evening and tried some new wines from regions that they perhaps would not normally consider and had fun at Borough Market after hours.
We have more dates to be confirmed for the near future. So stay tuned!
