Matošević Wines in Top British Restaurants

Wednesday September 4th, 2013 * Morana

Alba Antiqua Malvasia is the first Croatian dry wine which entered a tasting menu at the legendary English restaurant The Fat Duck, owned by world-famous chef Heston Blumenthal. This a great honour and a big step forward in promoting Istrian Malvasia as top-quality Istrian and Croatian wine brand. Besides, the Fat Duck’s wine list also includes our blends Grimalda White and Grimalda Red. We owe this success to Isa Bal, sommelier at the Fat Duck, and João Pires, sommelier of currently best rated British restaurant Dinner, also managed by Heston Blumenthal. They visited Matošević Winery in Krunčići in 2012 and tasted our wines. Alba Antiqua obviously made a lasting impression because it was also the recommended wine during November and December 2012 at Dinner. We hope that our entry into the leading British restaurants will help to open many other doors for Istrian Malvasia on the global wine market.
