US Master Sommelier Fred Dexheimer Discovers Tomic Beleca

Among the many distinguished guests at the winery in 2015, Bastijana was delighted to welcome Cliff Rames from Wines of Croatia, an old friend of Hvar wine. On this visit, Cliff brought American Master Sommelier Fred Dexheimer on his first visit to Croatia, and the two American experts enjoyed a tasting of the Tomic range with our very own Master of Wine Jo Ahearne.

Cliff subsequently interviewed Fred on his impressions of Hvar, and we are delighted to see that the Tomic Beleca was one of the highlights:

"I was particularly impressed by the purity of the whites. The Tomić Beleca, a blend of indigenous varieties from Hvar, was awesome—just so juicy and refreshing."

Thank you for your visit, Gentlemen, and we look forward to seeing you back in Jelsa soon.
