This week the city of Rethymno earned a new distinction in being selected a “European City of Wine” by the wine union RECEVIN. The central Crete coastal city is the first city of Greece, and the only town outside of Italy, of Spain and Portugal to have received the distinction.
Croatia’s Dubrovnik-Neretva County may soon appear on the map of Europe’s finest wine regions. Long an historically significant wine region, Dalmatia has perhaps been overlooked as a prime region by some experts. However unnoticed the area has been, inclusion onto Europe’s wine destination maps will certainly benefit the superb wine makers of Croatia.
