Zagreb County is inviting all interested winemakers from its area whose wines are sold in bottles to apply and take part in the 2nd edition of the review of the best wines of the Zagreb County, which will be held on March 25 at the Westin Hotel in Zagreb, reports Agrobiz.hr on March 4, 2019.
This is an opportunity for the best winemakers from the county to gather in one place and present themselves to wine experts, caterers, hoteliers, tourist officials and wine fans with their high-quality wines and thus promote the “Zagreb Green Ring” as an exceptional wine-growing region.
Zagreb County, as the organiser of the 2nd best wines review, will provide the exhibition space with tables, tablecloths and chairs, glasses, water and pouring pots to all those who sign up.
In addition to tasting top quality wines and their pairing with local cheeses produced at the Zagreb Region Cheese Road, as well as with the meat products, which are both brands of Zagreb County, all visitors of the review will be able to participate in topical workshops and guided wine tastings.
To apply for this unique wine event, winemakers should fill in the application form published on the official website of the Zagreb County.
Last year, the 1st edition of the review brought together wines with a protected designation of origin produced by some 30 winemakers from nine wine areas of Zagreb County. Visitors had an opportunity to taste more than 150 international and autochthonous wine varieties and several types of high-quality cheeses made by producers from the county.
With its five million vines, planted on more than 900 hectares, Zagreb County is at the very top of Croatia by the number of winemakers, wine labels, wine roads, and winemaking and wine projects in general. Some of the most successful projects are the county brands – such as the Kraljevina Zelina and the Portugizac Pleševica, as well as the wine promotion project with the Wine Queen which have been continuously crowned in the County since 2003.
