These are wines that can mature for a long time and be stored for many years. Then, these are wines that are in various competitions and according to many eminent critics won the highest marks and are marked as wines worthy of preservation and private collections.
The year 2021 will remain recorded as the year of reversal, the year in which they are dry Dalmatian wines won several of the brightest, gold and platinum medals, from any other wine region of Central and Eastern Europe on the highest international rating Decanter World Wine Awards. Some of these award-winning wines, as well as many others, equally good, could be tasted at this exclusive one-day event.
