Topic: 3 X 12, BIG TRIMM OF MASLIN, WINE AND GASTRONOMY
Description: The highest honors at the world's largest maneuvers to Croatian olive growers are no longer new. Apart from the quality of our oil mills, we are at the forefront of nurturing top quality monosortic olive oils. Each variety approaches specifically, separates in harvesting, processing, offering and presentation. In addition to searching for the perfect wine for the recipe of a particular dish, gastronomic experts are now harmoniously trained with the distinctive features of an olive variety. Bjelica, crni, buža, oblika, lastovka, askolana and dozens of other autochthonous and imported varieties became recognizable, gained their clear profile and occupied the place in well-thought out menus. In the Gastronomy Club and the Apetit restaurant team and the chef Marin Rendić, they made a gourmet ticket to this year's best young olive oil from Istria to Dalmatia. According to the different qualities of each oil, it was first chosen the key food, the corresponding gastro icon, from fresh black and white truffles to island honey. Then a recipe was created for each food. In the end, the sommelier rounded the story, starting with the grape variety and the terroir, according to the winery and the wine year rounding up this great trinity. The excitement of excellence of this kind is a stimulating, exciting and very demanding story. We therefore limited the number of places in our presentation in order to attain the tastings of socializing and exchange of opinions.

Topic: WHAT RED WINE CREATES MEDITERRANEAN WINE?
If we were going to pick one of the most exciting Croatian vineyards, we would certainly have counted Međimurje on its own. The young generation of winemakers with the already recognizable white assortment increasingly invest in the production of red wines. Which international varieties are hiding in the Međimurje vineyards? With which world region could we compare it?
