  • Hi Cliff,
    hope a lot of entries from Croatia will compete.
    Think they’re on the verge of becoming champions of the ultimate niche.
    (Don’t think big, think better).
    Cheers, Pim.
    thanks for posting, teaching me (and others) about Croatian names of ice wines. (ledeno vino, kasna berba, izborna berba; izborna berba prosušenih bobica).
    Know the French names, even the German names, but hey, this is Croatia.
    Still think you should (consider to) write that book :-).
    Them wines deserve it, and you know how !
