Senjković wines: Making greatgrandpa Bosso proud
- Web: www.vina-senjkovic.hr >
Family Senjković from the island of Brač belongs to a new generation of Croatian winemakers, although their winemaking tradition goes way way back, to the days when old greatgrandpa Ambroz was trying to make vines grow on rocky ground. Well, he would have been proud now. Their best wine Bosso was named after him (his nickname) and his picture is on the label. Modern design and modern wines for the future, but keeping the link with their own tradition and past, that’s Senjković recipe for success and that’s why we love them.
We talked to Saša Senjković and his wife Magdalena…
TOC: Which of your wines represents your character the best?
S: Bosso 2009, elegant and smooth Plavac. The idea was to make it lighter than Plavac wines from Pelješac, for everyday consumption.
TOC: What makes your wines stand out from others?
S: Plavac grapes are picked before they are overripe.
TOC: What do you like to eat with your wines?
S: Our rosé made from Plavac mali and Cabernet Sauvignon pairs well with sugared almonds. Broško Rič goes well with pašticada and goulash. More complex Bosso pairs with wild game dishes.
TOC: What’s your idea for saving tourism in Croatia?
S: Authenticity, tastings for tourists, exploring the culture and customs, direct contact between winemakers and restaurateurs.
