Croatia's food and wines presented on American TV channel CNBC

ZAGREB, 13.4.2012.

The popular American TV channel CNBC has presented Croatia's food and wines in its specialised show Wine Portfolio, describing Croatia as a destination for true lovers of traditional specialties and fine wines.

The Croatian Tourism Board (HTZ) Main Office said on Friday that the show, broadcast in late March, was made last year during a CNBC study tour of Croatia, organised by the HTZ Main Office and the HTZ Office in New York.

The show's host, Jody Ness, and his team visited Zagreb, Opatija, Kastav, Volosko, Motovun, Livade, Momjan, Vizinada, Porec, Pula, Plitvice, Sibenik, Skradin and Split, interviewing a number of wine-makers and chefs.

The 30-minute show, which has 95 million viewers in the United States and Canada, deals with topics related to the gastronomy and wines of tourist destinations around the world.
The Wine Portfolio production has also promoted Croatia on its blog and Twitter profile, and a video clip on Croatia can be seen on the Wine Portfolio web site and on You Tube. (Hina)
