Croatian Evening

The highlight of the social event program is the Croatian Evening with dinner. It will begin with a tour of wine roads of the Medjimurje County. Owing to the wine quality and tasting rooms design Medjimurje wine road ranks near the very top of Croatian enological offer, which also earned the title of the best product of continental Croatia in 2007.

Wine road tour will include wine tasting in the wine cellar Tomšić and presentation of regional folk dance ensemble. Our host will offer us a selection of wines and traditional snacks (non-alchocolic beverages will also be available).
