Save the Date! Croatian Wine Grand Tasting Coming to NYC

We are pleased to announce the Vina Croatia Grand Tasting 2015 of the wines of Croatia, which will be held on February 24, 2015 at Astor Center in New York City. This is a TRADE ONLY event.


This will be the third Grand Tasting of the Wines of Croatia in NYC since 2011 (the first was held on June 7, 2011 at Hudson Terrace, and the second occurred on February 26, 2013 at Astor Center).

This year, in addition to a walk around tasting and opportunity to meet several winemakers, there will be two seminars with special guest speakers, including Cliff Rames, Certified Sommelier and founder of Wines of Croatia; Christy Canterbury, Master of Wine; Saša Špiranec, regional wine expert and writer; as well as successful Americans who invested in the Croatian wine business and are the faces behind Grgic, Korta Katarina and Benmosche wineries.

The birthplace of Zinfandel, Croatia is home to 1244 islands, 130 indigenous varietals and four unique wine regions. Join us and taste a diverse selection of over 100 wines from more than 20 of the country’s most cutting-edge producers (some already imported, some looking for representation).

The event will include light appetizers and two masterclass seminars highlighting some of Croatia’s most talented winemakers.
