Croatian/Slovenian Tidbits and Praise
Providence in L.A. features a number of our wines

Just a few quick words about goings on in the blog world. The rather exotically-titled blog, Exile Kiss has a comprehensive nice article with even nicer photographs extolling the virtues of an IRON CHEF tasting menu at Providence restaurant in L.A. They paired our Peljesac from the Dalmatian coast with “Assorted Shellfish” of squid and mussels. Earlier this summer we were lucky enough to be invited by sommelier Drew Langley to pair our wines with the exquisite cuisine of chef Michael Cimarusti at a private cooking class. We were blown away how good the food was but equally how well the Weinrieder Kugler Riesling, the Crnko Yellow Muskat and the JURIS Pinot Noir Selection paired with it, a real pleasure for our taste buds.

Also from a culinary perspective a little further south, Food GPS writes about a recent dinner at Mesa in Orange County, CA. The photos can be a bit tricky at points because they were taken with a flash, but it looks like it was a tasty meal. It appears that the meal was made even tastier by the addition of the Croatian Bibich Riserva and the Slovenian Tilia Sauvignon Blanc. Word is apparently getting out about how well these wines pair with foods.

Another blog mentions the history of viticulture on the island of Hvar in Dalmatia. For more information you can read the always informative Lifejacket Adventures who are a group of Australians living in coastal Croatia. It’s a few months old now, but they wrote a lengthy article on the wines and spirits of Hvar as well. Of course, we have also written about Hvar’s wines in the past too. They wines are quite, quite good, so the press isn’t surprising.

Lastly, in a complete instance of navel gazing and back patting, we have to say that we were happy to be mentioned in EnoBytes compilation of Google’s Top 100 Wine Blogs. Thanks for that! We’ll do our best to keep it coming.
