Croatia was the location of  the International Wine Tourism Conference in 2013.  When we visited Zagreb and Istria we discovered a country with a wonderful  history and culture. Anyone thinking of traveling to Croatia in 2014 will want to keep in mind the upcoming 2014 Croatian wine events. Be sure to check with the organization’s website before making final plans.
