Bastijana was delighted to take part in an exclusive tasting of Hvar wines at Restaurant Baltazar in Oslo last night, an event attended by the Croatian Ambassador to Norway and several leading wine figures from Scandivania.
Seven Croatian winemakers, including five from Hvar, had their wines presented by sommelier Robert de Young, who has a house in Jelsa, a total of 48 wines in all. Of the 19 wines which received special commendation, four were from our winery - Beleca, Opolo Rose, Plavac Barrique and Sveti Klement.
