Wine is at the heart of everyday life in Croatia, grown in almost every region of the country for centuries. Yet, for most UK consumers, Croatian wine remains undiscovered despite its impressive pedigree. The plains of Stari Grad on the island of Hvar, for example, are a listed UNESCO World Heritage Centre and the oldest continuously cultivated vinicultural site in the world dating back to the 4th century BC.
For the coronation of Her Majesty The Queen in 1953, Buckingham Palace ordered 11,000 bottles of Traminac wine from Ilok Old Cellars. This 1947 vintage white wine, specially chosen for its intense perfume, full body and intense flavours of rose, orange blossom and tropical fruits can still be purchased today.Croatia produces some outstanding, award winning wines, but they are difficult to find in the UK. Â We aim to change this. The clubÂ offers a premium selection of the best Croatian wines at competitive prices. Award winning wines, some in limited quantities.
