A stellar line up of Croatian wines in Oslo, as Swedish importer Armano’s presents some of the best of Croatian wine at the Croatian Embassy in Norway on September 7, 2016.
The Croatian wine story is reaching more distant shores, and one market which has yet to be explored in depth is one which has a close assocation with tourism in Croatia – Norway.
Norwegian tourists are discovering Croatia in ever increasing numbers – and the excellent wines on holiday – as the airline Norwegian connects several cities in Scandinavia with the Adriatic coast, but where to find those quality Croatian wines back home to get through the winter?
A presentation at luxury restaurant Balthazar in central Oslo of predominantly Hvar wines in 2013 for journalists, wine experts and the Croatian Ambassador, was an initial toe into the water (read about that event here), and now Swedish importer Armano’s has followed suit, organising a similar event for journalists and importers at the Croatian Embassy in Oslo earlier this week.
On show were some of Croatian wine’s biggest names – Bibich, Trapan, Kozlovic, Krauthaker, Korta Katarina, Milos and Roxanich.
