We are delighted to welcome Tina Milicic to the TCN team. Tina had a very pink International Women’s Day in Zagreb, and kindly wrote about a great event involving a glass or two of rose.
On March 8 1908 in New York a chain of events was set in motion leading to women today being able to toast their independence, freedom of choice and equality with their male peers. To celebrate this there was no better event in Zagreb on March 8, 2016, than the one organised within the 4th International Pink Day festival aimed at supporting talented young Ivana Paladin on her journey to become a wine connoisseur.
This remarkable 24-year-old lady from the rural town of Sinj fought through not only one but two different Agricultural degrees in both fitomedicine and enology within a timeframe most need to finish their basic degree. And she did so with flying colours.
To set her on her future journey, Women on Wine in association with DORA organised this lovely event in Zagreb Eye sightseeing bar, with enchanting pink sparklings and wines, savouring Zvonac catering food and mesmerising tones of Marija Mlinar’s harp and Antonela Malis’ voice channelling Édith Piaf.
Pink atmosphere of the event celebrated womanhood at its best, gathering strong women in support of another pink star rising. It’s safe to say that pink thoughts of the evening went far and beyond ensuring Ivana’s master’s degree and in that name we raise a glass to Women on Wine and their team – may this be one of many such celebrations to come.
They meet again on March 19 in Mimara Museum for the fourth edition of popular Pink Day festival presenting the best of Croatian rose. If you’re in Zagreb it’s a place to be.
