Not even all Croatian experts know of Zagreb and its immediate area being the largest national wine manufacturers. However, quantity is the least important factor of Croatian gastronomy. On the contrary, vineyard work, personal approach and owner’s unique environment limit production thus creating values for exquisite palatal delight. This should be experienced on arrival at Pleso airport to final departure minute. Dinner at Hotel Esplanade – so charming and inspirational for numerous world famous novelists – is thematic. This is achieved by illustrating the incredible culinary diversity of our small country. Zagreb and its immediate area offer a wide scope of modern urban ambience. An abundance of the city’s historical market, superbly preserved buildings from various historical epochs. Wine manufacturers of this area have, in the last years, gained worldwide reputation thereby visited and immensely enjoyed by top wine authorities. Premium wine tasting in the company of its manufacturer is the ultimate experience of any wine lover. The dynamic Croatian wine scene incited a new generation of chefs on exquisite culinary creations, modern cuisine emanating from a centuries old tradition. Croatia, slowly but surely, grows on you and this is a real risk you are exposed to at your own responsibility!
