• A whole new world – a wine tasting test for Horsham

    We also offered our newest sparkling wines at this event – Grasecco and Francesca. These are an amazing alternative to Champagne/Prosecco. They are really delicious and easy to drink. Made using the traditional method of Champagne they have a fantastic depth of flavour but are light and crisp like a beloved prosecco. 86% of people at this tasting loved this product!

    Fancy trying some of the wines for yourself?

    Hello again readers!

    What a month January has been! We have been very busy and we are really enjoying having a very successful month as a result.

    We recently held a wine tasting session in Horsham which has proved a huge success. As we always promise this was a bespoke event and our customer was very clear they wanted to try a variety of Croatian wine so we delivered. It was really fascinating to see the comparisons and feedback on the wines and we thought we would share that with you.

    Our story was one of influence of the Croatian wine makers around the world. Our wine journey started in Croatian, we then visited New Zealand and California before returning back to Croatia. All our wine makers had one thing in common, they were Croatian.

    Some say there would be no modern New Zealand wine industry, and after showcasing Villa Maria and Babich Wines, we can see how these award-winning wine makers have made their mark.

    From Californian we showcased the famous Grgich Zinfandel. You might imagine what happened – some people absolutely loved it (and this includes us) and others less so. Yes, Zinfandel is somewhat a marmite of the wine, some love it and some don’t.

    We opened with a bit of background on the wine regions on offer which were our very own Croatian delights and some of New Zealand’s and Californian offerings. We kept it light with detail but focused on fun and informative facts.

    With each tasting, we spoke about what to expect from the wine and allowed the tasters time to relish the flavours and find their own interpretation of the wines (the best bit!)

    We were sure to include some snippets of jewels from our vineyards as well.

    What really stood out from this tasting was the feedback on our wines and it was a fantastic opportunity for us to see a comparison with some of New Zealand’s and Californian finest as well as getting some first-hand feedback on all aspects of our products.

    Thank you so much to the lovely customer that booked this and gave us a different angle.
