Placed under the patronage of the OIV, this competition brought together 140 wines of the Malvasia vine variety from 5 different countries.
On this occasion, Mr Jean-Marie Aurand met with the Minister for Agriculture, Mr Tihomir Jakovina. He confirmed the desire of Croatia, a member of the OIV since 2001, to continue its involvement in the work of the OIV.
The Director General praised the Croatian experts' contribution to the activities of the Organisation and also proposed that Croatia organise a wine presentation at the OIV headquarters in 2016.
Croatia has begun a process of modernising its vitivinicultural sector in recent years, especially by promoting native varieties.
