Attached below is how Lauren introduced this free live event – you can watch it live on Instagram, or watch the recording later, by going to @ChasingtheVine. We hope you can join us.

Živjeli!

Mirena and Win

Has Game of Thrones piqued your curiosity about this ancient country cradling the Adriatic Sea?

You’re not alone. Tourism to this beautiful stretch of mountains-meet-coastline has increased dramatically over the last decade. As Americans flock to Croatia, many return home with a souvenir from their travels. Souvenirs of wine soon turn into appreciation for recreating the experience of wining and dining back in Dubrovnik.

Fortunately, a new importer has set up shop in the U.S.: Croatian Premium Wine. Founders include Mirena Bagur, from Dalmatia, and her husband Win Burke. As they say in the industry, timing is everything, and interest in Croatian wine is at an all-time high.

Mirena Bagur, originally from Dalmatia, and her husband Win Burke, join me for an IG Live event on Chasing the Vine on Thursday, October 22, 2020 at 12 PM ET.

We’ll focus on three key grapes: Tribidrag, Pošip, and Plavac Mali. While the names sound unusual, the tastes will be familiar while uniquely evocative of Croatian terroir. The wines for the event:

  1. Terra Madre Pošip 2018

  2. Rizman Tribidrag 2016

  3. Volarevic Plavac Mali (affectionately called the Blue label) 2015
