Foreigners in Dalmatia

The foreigners, of course, refers to grape varietals that are recent incomers to the region – chardonnay, merlot, cabernet sauvignon, syrah, grenache, etc – and are now being grown alongside the indigenous varieties.

Vinodol

Zagreb&Surroundings
Last impressions Croatian Cuisine All-Stars

Restaurants
Restaurant Vinodol offers the best of traditional Croatian cuisine from various regions in downtown Zagreb, at affordable prices, in a very warm and inviting setting and with friendly and attentive service. Although it’s an institution with a long tradition, recently both the interior and the cooking have been undergoing some positive changes. One of Vinodol’s trademarks is celebrating the season of the roast baby lamb from the island of Pag that starts in February. But you’ll find much, much more! Very spacious and great terrace.

Fast Good
Stvari su u ovom jako simpatičnom baru odrađene vrlo profesionalno, ali i šarmatno. Minimalističko, ali vrlo toplo uređenje u igri drveta, stakla i rasvjete već smo vidjeli, no u Dežman baru stvara jednako hipstersku koliko i toplu, domaću atmosferu. Ovo je jedno od rijetkih mjesta gdje je bezglutenska ponuda ravnopravna onoj klasičnoj. Kuhinja iz pozadine izbacuje foccaccie za sendviče, bezglutenski kruh stiže iz jedinog pouzdanog izvora u Zagrebu, a može ga se naručiti i za doma. Ozbiljno osmišljeni sendviči pristojne cijene, pa si slažete okuse s različitih strana svijeta jer su manjeg formata. Ovdje sendvič postaje pravi obrok. Pileća pašteta? Dosadno! Pileća pašteta s garam masalom? Pjeva sto jezika, dok za onu od tune nije bilo mjesta. Kada krenete vršljati ponudom deserata dođe vam žao da ste išta prije njih stavili u usta, a croissant&butter puding je takav comfort food moment da mu nisam mogla odoljeti. Ponuda vina na čaše, kokteli, izvrsna Cogito kava, na sve su mislili. Preostaje mi samo preseliti im se malo bliže :)

Dimitri Brecevic (Piquentum wines) is young winemaker born in France who 10 years ago decided to start his own wine production in Istria. He studied in Bordeaux and has international winemaking carrier, but do not even bother asking him about Merlot or Cabernet Sauvignon. He believes only in grape varieties indigenous to Istria - Istrian Malvasia, Teran and Refošk - and produces wines that receive a lot of buzz lately. Dimitri does not use selected yeasts and he ferments his Malvasia at a bit higher temperatures (19-20 C) than in most Istrian wineries. Result? Aroma of his Malvasia is less intense and fruity, but more subtle and earthy in the mouth. His Teran is a cultivated beast while there are plenty of juicy red fruits in Refošk. If you pass near Buzet don't miss visiting his wine cellar. The entrance looks mysterious, like access to a top-secret underground military facility - it's an old water cistern made in the 30s when Italian administration ruled he

Traditional Produce
This family owned butcher shop is in hands of brother Čučković who are today the most popular butchers in Croatia, mostly because they were one of the first to realize the importance of social media. These hospitable and talkative guys are not only excellent as producers of catchy Instagram pics and funny statuses but, what is more important to me, they offer top quality meat sourced from family owned farms in continental Croatia. Travelers through Croatia, who are for obvious reason maybe not interested in their fresh meat offer, can still find visit to Čučković shop on the outskirts of Rijeka well worth. They produce their very own charcuterie delicacies like pancetta, salami, bresaola, lard or buđola. Perfect for your travel sandwiches or to take back home as gourmet souvenir.

Vina, maslinova ulja i ocat Dobravac otkrila sam slučajno prije nekih 5 godina na Vinistri. Odonda ih vjerno pratim, ali tek sam ove godine stigla do Ville Dobravac, smještene na krasnoj poziciji unutar grada Rovinja. Glavni poticaj bila je vijest da je otvoren wine bar Dobravac, u kojem glavnu riječ vodi, ni manje ni više nego jedna od najboljih sommelierki Hrvatske - Karin Rupena Perdec. Villa Dobravac posebno je šarmantno i ugodno mjesto, pa je i u prohladnu ljetnu večer primamljivo sjediti na terasi s pogledom na stari Rovinj, ribarice koje se vraćaju s mora, ali i gospodina Dobravca usred velikog posla, berbe. Iako nismo uspjeli kušati cijelu vinsku paletu, za oduševljenje su nam bili dovolni pjenušac napravljen iz malvazije, te Simfonija, narančasto vino iz 2008., napravljeno iz malvazije i chardonnaya. Za dokaz majstorstva i promišljanja u podrumu, dovoljno. Uz 3 vrste sira, vlastite masline, karamel od kozjeg mlijeka i pržene lješnjake, više nismo mogli poželjeti. Važno je napomenuti da su Dobravci u prvom redu poljoprivrednici, pa se tijekom sezone na ulazu u dvorište nalazi mala trgovina s njihovim vlastitim povrćem i voćem. U mojem poimanju zatvorenih krugova, Dobravci su došli vrlo daleko, skidam kapu.
