The Roots of Zinfandel in Croatia

April 30 - May 5, 2017

6 Days / 5 Nights in Split, Croatia


3-Night Post Conference Add-on Package to Istria Wine Country



We discovered a unique trip by our friends at Zinfandel Advocates and Producers (ZAP):  The Roots of Zinfandel in Croatia!  The reason we love this trip is that its blend of wine & food education and fun experience speaks to the core of the AIWF. 

We will have the opportunity to learn about the history, styles and expression of the zinfandel grape from its iconic winemakers themselves- both new and old world.  We will experience not only this first-ever zinfandel world symposium but the chance to explore the region’s other wines, cuisine and sights.  We are especially excited about the Istrian add-on and the chance to experience the wines and food of this increasingly popular region.   

So please join us, ZAP and winemaking giants Joel Peterson - Ravenswood, David Gates - Ridge Vineyards, Rich Parducci - McNab Ridge Vineyards, Randle Johnson - ArteZin, Ivo Jeramaz - Grgich Hills Estate and Croatian winemakers from: Bibic, Milos, Vuina, Stimic and Bastijana on this land-based excursion to Croatia and beyond!

As an AIWF member, the ZAP member fee has been waived but you must register via this special AIWF link. Full trip details and registration form here:   Croatia trip
