(While visiting Croatia) Harvesting memories and new learnings
(Croatia Week article, Sept. 30, 2019)
When a year ago we created the concept for importing Croatian wines to the US, I didn’t know the depth of my ongoing immersion with not just my country, but also with people from my hometown. The people I grew up with. People that know my family. People that are appreciative of the culture and nature of our homeland. This business journey has become my journey home – discovering many aspects of culture and winemaking that I have either forgotten or simply never learned.
This is the first in a series of adventures I am experiencing this Fall in Croatia, starting with the harvest at the Komarna Appellation, the Dubrovnik-Neretva County.
