Croatia’s Gold Medal Winning Wines

Croatia Online - Dakavo Wine Cellar

Croatia’s discovery continues, with wine experts now realising what locals, and those in the know, have  been aware of for many years. The recent Decanter World Wine Awards gave eight gold medals to Croatian wines, whilst Argentina could only muster, seven and Chile four.

Read the full story in the Telegraph, go to  Decanter for a full list of winners and link to Croatia Online Visits Bibich Winery, Skradin for more information on some of Croatia’s wines.

Today’s photo is of the Bishop’s wine cellar in Đakovo, Slavonia - Croatia Online - Dakavo, Inland Croatia tells you a bit more about this and it’s interesting to note that nearly all the medal winning wines came from continental Croatia.
