Public-private Alliance of Organizations from Croatia, USA, Canada and Europe
New York, NY; Boston, Mass, — May 21, 2020 – Today, the Croatian Wine Alliance, a group of global and US based teams promoting Croatian wines, is pleased to share the announcement of the first wine day dedicated to a Croatian indigenous white grape variety: Pošip. May 21st marks International Pošip Day, a day to celebrate the beauty of what Pošip has to offer.
Croatia has a unique wine history dating back to 2,500 years, and four key wine regions, each growing distinct grape variety. Pošip from the Dalmatian region of Croatia (vitis vinifera) is typically bottled on May 21st following the harvest year. Pošip produces light and refreshing wines, yellow in color with aroma of herbs and citrus, taste of melon, apricot, pears, or vanilla, with a lovely saline minerality.
“We have been working with like-minded Croatian wine lovers across the globe on marketing projects, and creating an alliance was a natural next step,” said Mirena Bagur, co-founder of Croatian Premium Wine Imports, Inc., an online retailer and advocate for wines of Croatia in the US where the company ships 50+ Croatian wines to most US states.. “We are excited to round out partners such as the institutes, importers and associations of sommeliers and winemakers across US, Canada, Europe and Croatia that will tell the personal stories of Croatian varieties.”
