Spanish Wines tasting
Additionally, on the morning of October 9th, Aspira catering school in Split in Split will host a wine presentation.
These activities will feature a mix of gourmet products, some of which have a presence in the market and others that are looking to gain a foothold in Croatia. Moreover, efforts to promote Spanish wine in Croatia have been under way since 2015.
Organized by ICEX Spain Trade and Investment and the Spanish Embassy’s Economic and Commercial Office in Croatia, these activities seek to raise the profile of Spain’s products and strengthen their presence in Croatia, whose consumers regularly vacation in Spain and have shown a growing interest in Spanish wines.
