April 17, Basement Wine Bar – Secrets of Croatian wine cellars. Workshop featuring rare and unknown wines made by famous Croatian winemakers.
To enter a cellar, including a wine cellar, you must go down. They are located underground, and we use them to store our valuables. In the most hidden corners of wine cellars, winemakers keep the selected bottles from special vintages, meant to age. Layers of dust cover them, and new bottles are placed in front and above them. Sometimes even the winemakers forget about the most valuable ones.
We encouraged our eminent winemakers to look for the secrets in their own cellars. We were amazed what this search revealed: each of them found at least several bottles that were lost both in their cellar and memory. The joy at their discoveries is mutual. Apart from fantastic aromas, each of these bottles has a story to tell. Malac Plavi and Basement invite you to a special tasting of unique wines.
Participating wineries: Radović, Philipp vina, Meneghetti, Duboković, Šember, Miloš
Price: 80 kn, to book contact Basement Wine Bar directly
