Roots of Zinfandel program in Croatia April 30-May 5, 2017

April 30, 2017

The Hess Collection and ArteZin are excited to participate in Zinfandel Advocates & Producers’ (ZAP) Roots of Zinfandel program in Croatia April 30-May 5, 2017. While ZAP has partnered with Food & Wine Trails on many travel programs, this is the first tasting and travel program to bring Californian and Croatian wine producers together with wine enthusiasts on a tour to the ancestral home of Zinfandel. History in the making! The five-day program will be based in Split at the Radisson Blu Hotel. The breathtaking Dalmatia coastline will serve as the backdrop for travelers to find their own private island or hidden cove, explore a rich culture and historical sites, relax on the beaches, and indulge in the mouth-watering local cuisine with wines to match. Participants will have the chance to mingle with some of California’s and Croatia’s most famous wine producers in a series of private parties, meals, tastings and tours to neighboring islands and vineyards.
