So, 4 years after first meeting Alessia and Marin in the Caribbean, I found myself accepting their invitation to come and taste wines with them in Croatia. Over two days, I did my best to taste everything put in front of me. It was a pleasure!

I was particularly struck by how eager the Croatian wine producers were to listen and perhaps learn from what I had to say. Clearly there are already some extremely accomplished winemakers and indeed most of the wines being produced are of a style that would be appreciated in other countries. I can also see how well suited many of them would be to drinking with a good meal.

I liked the freshness and perfume of the Malvasias; the appetising nature of Posip; the vigour and classical structure of Plavac Mali; the unique style of Tomic's Amphora; and the evident ability of winemakers to make high quality wine from international grapes, especially Chardonnay and Syrah. The sparkling wine and sweet wines I tasted could also hold their own with fine examples produced elsewhere in the world.

I must admit that I was pleased and flattered by the attention paid to me as a Master of Wine, and was even more surprised to see myself on national TV. Overall, it was a hugely enjoyable and stimulating first visit to Croatia, made even more comfortable by the outstanding welcome and service at the Hotel Bastion.

Many thanks to Alessia, Marin from YACHT GOURMET CROATIA and all those who made my visit possible. I hope to be back soon - and, in the meantime, will drink as much Croatian wine as I can find!

Eric Pacorel, chef on MY Avangard II
I will never forget you, high quality products and seafood items you supply us near to Dubrovnik old harbor, to deliver these great fresh fish that we were unable to find elsewhere... The highest level of professionalism, and be sure that I never forget all the people that they did all they can to assist me.

YACHT GOURMET CROATIA served as our main provisioner for the summer 2011 season. Alessia and her staff were of the upmost support to MY Princess Iolanthe. This season we had six back-to-back charters so needless to say we were busy. But A. and her staff were always able to meet us wherever with whatever we needed; even a case of wine on the fly. Cigars were also flown in, which made one of our guests extremely happy. The quality of produce and products was exceptional. If I ever do another season in Croatia, I will definately use YACHT GOURMET CROATIA.
