Beverly Hills, California, US – March 10, 2023 – Showcasing wines made by Croatian women winemakers at the pre-Oscar party in Beverly Hills became a perfect opportunity for Ms. Renee Pea, the Consul General of the Republic of Croatia in Los Angeles, to talk with the guests about Croatian winemaking in general, and in this case particularly about the Croatian women winemakers.
“This event, especially since we are celebrating the Women’s History Month, was a great opportunity to showcase Croatian women winemakers, said Ms. Renee Pea, Consul General of the Republic of Croatia in Los Angeles. “We are excited to raise a glass, or two, of Croatian wines like Malvasia, Pušipel or Plavac Mali in one of the best restaurants in the area.”
Move Over Cocktails
The gala took place Thursday, March 9th at the iconic restaurant “Tatel”, where guests enjoyed wines from all four Croatian wine regions.
“It is exciting to see Jasna, Tea, Ana and Gorana’s names intermingled with the names of the movie stars, such as Jennifer Hudson, Marcia Gay Harden & Eva Longoria and others,” said Mirena Bagur, founder of Croatian Premium Wine Imports, Inc., distributor and wine ambassador for 80+ wine labels of indigenous Croatian wines being shipped to most US states. “Now, that guests are familiar with the quality of Croatian winemaking, we only need to teach them how to pronounce the names of our indigenous varietals,” added Bagur with a smile.
