  • Very well done Cliff and good to see some recognition for all that energy and time invested in Wines of Croatia project. Also congrats to the journalist for good insights and good questions along the interview.

  • Hi Cliff,
    a good interview indeed, and a realistic view on the future of Croatian wines in the international markets.
    I agree with you that especially the niches which Croatia has a lot of in as well regions, micro climates and grapes offer excellent opportunities for smart wine producers.
    Another thing is to join those wine producers into a marketing group, in order to promote and sell their wines from a united office.
    Joining forces makes even the small ones strong I would say.
    Wishing you and all motivated Croatian wine makers the very best, cheers, they are lucky to have a guy like you behind their efforts, Pim.
