It has taken almost 6 months but we have now launched. We have so many people to thank from our sister company across the pond - BlueIceUS - and to Ken Miller at Borders Wines for his advice and patience and to family and friends who have put up with the talk but not much action UNTIL NOW. Well the action starts now.
We are excited to bring you wines from Croatia. We will start small. We are currently working with three vineyards - Franc Arman (Istria), Benvenuti (Istria) and Stina (Island of Brac) but we will expand our wine book as we go. We will work with small, family owned vineyards in order to bring you interesting and delicious wines.
Croatian wine is not that well known in the UK and we intend to remedy this. Croatia produces some excellent wines and as Hugh Johnson writes in his Pocket Wine Book 2020 "...endless opportunities for discovery, not least because the country has so many unique grapes...."
We will bring you wines made from many very recognisable grape varieties such as Chardonnay and Merlot. However for those more adventurous amongst you we will also bring some of the indigenous grape varieties found in Croatia such as Teran (red), Plavac Mali (red), Malvazija (white) and Posip (white).
We will also be supporting two amazing military charities that help and support veterans and their families across the UK. These are the Grenadier Guards Colonel's Fund and Combat Stress. For each bottle of wine sold we will donate 20p (10p each) to these charities. Enjoying fine wine and giving to charity could not be easier.
Please take a look at our website BlueIceUK and have a look at what we have to offer.
