Join us for an in-depth discussion about New-Old World wines from the Balkan region. All wines featured will be made from indigenous grape varietals from Serbia, Slovenia, Macedonia, Croatia and Bosnia & Herzegovina. While the Balkans may not be the first area that comes to mind when thinking of wine regions, it has an important viticultural tradition that dates back centuries, and in some parts for thousands of years. More recently, the two World Wars, the fall of communism, the civil war and the disintegration of Yugoslavia certainly affected winemakers and vineyards. However, the tenacious wines of the Balkans are back on the rise and are featured more and more in restaurants, shops and wine-related articles.
Aleks Krsmanovic is Managing Partner at the Balkan Wine Project, a company that brings wines from the Balkans to the U.S. The Balkan Wine Project's goal is to emphasize education and distribution in order to highlight the diversity of Balkan history, regions, people, foods and wines. It is an effort to look at the complex and finely woven diversity of the Balkans through a wine glass. Mr. Krsmanovic has been involved in the wine business for over 10 years and is passionate about Balkan wines.
