Bastijana welcomed Nick Squires, Rome correspondent for Britain's Daily Telegraph this morning, the latest international journalist coming to Jelsa to meet Andro Tomic. Nick is doing a story for the Sunday Telegraph about Croatia's entry to the EU, and he was joined by Paul Bradbury of Total Hvar and Dusan Jelic of Wines of Balkans.
Once the political discussion was finished, there was time for a wine tasting, where both Andro and Dusan gave an enthusiastic introduction to the Plavac Mali grape, before moving on to the Prosek.
"This wine is extraordinary," said Nick, after his first mouthful of the Plavac Mali Barrique 2007. It was his first taste of Plavac Mali, but we suspect not his last, as Andro sent him home with a bottle for his journey.
The story will appear in the Sunday Telegraph either this weekend or the following Sunday.
