More international media attention in Jelsa yesterday, as Bastijana welcomed Dan McLaughlin, Central Europe correspondent The Irish Times. Dan, who is based in Hungary, brought a gift for Andro Tomic, a bottle of the famous Hungarian dessert wine Tokaj, so that he could compare it with his beloved Prosek.
A very pleasant two hours ensued, where a range of topics where covered of a glass or two ("this white is really, really good") and lots of notes were taken, not only about Hvar wines, but also various other aspects of Hvar, from the history of El Shatt to the dormouse festival. I suspect we will be seeing Dan again on Hvar shortly... Andro gave Dan a bottle of Prosek to send him on his way, but he was clearly impressed with the wines, as he popped up to the shop to buy a few more bottles.
Thanks for your visit Dan, and we hope you had a good trip to Hvar.
