Judy and Ernie Glantz, USA
Jewish tour of Balkans
October 2008.

Judy and I have been sorting out the photos over the weekend and with each one we get excited over again! The trip historically (Split, Pula, Dubrovnik, Sarajevo, etc.) the beauty (Hvar, The Dalmatian Coast, etc.) were extraordinary. We can’t think how you could have it planned better for us! Michael was also a tremendous help to us, with his driving and ability to speak. The food and wine were an unexpected delight. The fresh (I mean really out of the Sea daily) fish was excellent, the fresh oysters on our way to Dubrovnik were outstanding. The various lamb dishes as good as we had anywhere. We still speak about the special wine dinner you arranged at Restaurant Pelegrin (I am still trying to get my friend who writes a food and wine column to do one on them) The wines were truly a surprise as we have not seen them in the U.S. We were particularly fond of the white Posip and the red Plavac Mali. We did taste different vintages, but as we can’t get them here I didn’t make notes. It was interesting to know that Grigich produces in Croatia. Next time we visit his vineyard in California I will make it a point to tell them we tasted his wine in Croatia. Again Many Thanks!! Judy & Ernie
