Zivjeli! – Croatian Wine Event in Los Angeles Area

Wines featured on the dinner were:

It is always a special pleasure doing a Croatian wine event outside the borders of our country, but it is even more special when you get to meet Croatian expats abroad on such an occasion.

Croatian Wine Event

Our last trip to United States of America was a great success. The main wine event we’ve took part of was in Los Angeles area. Croatian St. Anthony’s Church gathers some amazing people. Our Bozidar Jukic was invited to host a special fundraising event in South Hills Country Club in West Covina. Mr. Niko Rudela was instrumental in organising the event together with Ms. Marilyn Majich. With the support of the country club’s amazing F&B team and with wine’s provided by our favourite Croatian wine suppliers Croatian Premium Imports, the evening was a great success.

Three Stars Brut, Jagunić

This is a wine from the only Croatian sub-region famous for sparkling wines – Plesivica. This hilly picturesque area south of Zagreb boasts refreshing, yet complex sparkling wines. This one fits that description perfectly. Made using traditional method, the one used to produce French champagne, Three Stars Brut is a perfect wine to start the evening with. Jagunic Family Winery created a lovely wine that you can either have with food or on its own before a meal.

Malvazija, Fakin

No major wine region in Croatia is as revered with local wine lovers as Istria. Winemakers of Istria were the first in Croatia to elevate the quality standards and bring them up to the level of much more important wine countries of the Old World. It is therefore very difficult to stand out in Istria, especially when working with the most common local variety – Malvazija Istarska. However, Malvazija by Fakin Winery does exactly that. Recent gold medal at the Decanter World Wine Awards is the best proof
