Croatian wine to be served at the Royal wedding

By  Feb 22, 2018

Preparations for the wedding of the year of Prince Harry and his fiancée Meghan Markle are in full swing.

The royal couple will get married at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle on the 19th of May 2018, as did Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles in 2005.

It is interesting to note that numerous delicacies that will be served at the wedding will feature a product from Croatia.

‘’We have heard that Prince Harry and Meghan want our Croatian wines at their wedding. We are very honoured and we will be happy to send them’’, commented Diana Spajić, the marketing manager at Iločki podrumi.

The wine in question is Traminac, the famous Croatian wine from the wine cellars in Ilok in the Croatian region of Slavonia. It is the leading wine among European wines of this sort, given the fact that it was served at the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953. Even before that, Traminac from Croatia was included among wines served in the Royal Court of England.

In addition, on visiting Croatia two years ago, Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla enjoyed beautiful aromas of Traminac, whilst in 2011, the wine was served at the royal wedding of Prince William and Duchess Kate Middleton.

According to experts, today the price of one bottle of Traminac from 1947 that was served at the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II is worth 55,000 Kunas (around 7,400 Euros).
