Croatian wines are finally receiving the international recognition they deserve, and 2013 is an exciting time to be involved in the Croatian wine industry. With EU accession just weeks away, the market opportunities for quality wines from Dalmatia are intriguing, while the 130 indigenous grape varieties that Croatia brings to the world of wine are helping to attract greater interest in the country's wines.
