An American wine theme in Jelsa last night, as Andro Tomic was on hand with other winemakers to welcome two distinguished wine experts from the United States for a dinner with wine tasting at new Jelsa winebar Artichoke.
Cliff Rames is a great friend of Croatian wine and the international pioneer of wine promotion for the country, and he has made a magnificent contribution from his New York base with his Wines of Croatia blog.
Cliff has been joined on this trip by Master Sommelier Fred Dex, on his first trip to Croatia, and what better place to start than in the town of wine in Jelsa. The two managed a quick trip to visit Master of Wine Jo Ahearne and her operation in Sveta Nedjlelja before sitting down to check out the latest from the Hvar wine scene.
Thanks for your visit Cliff and Fred, and we look forward to your next visit. Keep up the promotion, States side!
