Marko Fakin, of Fakin Good Wines, a 6-time #Decanter Gold Medalist, presented their fresh and aged wines, Malvasia and Teran, in New York City.
The first presentation – a Free Wine Tasting and Meet & Greet with Fakin wines, was held last Sunday in Istria Sport Club & Restaurant as a part of dinner and dance on the occasion of Valentine’s Day. The second presentation of Fakin wines in New York was at the Villa Berulia Restaurant, which included hosting a 4-course pairing dinner for media representatives, sommeliers and other Croatian wine lovers.
“We are very happy that we had the opportunity to present our wines in New York to media representatives, sommeliers and all interested wine lovers who enjoyed company with us, a nice bite and a good drop. We would like to thank Villa Berulia Restaurant – NYC for the hospitality and organization of this wonderful dinner, Croatian Premium Wine Imports – our dear Mrs. Mirena Bagur for her exceptional help and cooperation, and Anna M. Viducic for her support,” said Marko.
