Sixth year in a row, we organize wine & culinary event WINE & FRIENDS were we get together to celebrate the Mediterranean joy of living, beautiful moments spent with friends who are as family!
During that day we are always enhanced by top quality wines from our wine partners, high gastronomy from our Chefs but above all the incredible energy and atmosphere that echo through the chambers of our 300 years old baroque castle, as if we are transformed into hedonistic oasis of some forgotten world…
After the warm greeting of our guests with the welcome speech and our partner G. H. Mumm Champagne in the Marina, the afternoon hours featured a presentation of some of the best winemakers in Croatia and beyond, in the living room of our heritage castle, followed by a short trip around the island to investigate Šolta's true gems - vineyards, olive oil, and honey or just chilling time around the pool.
The respectable list of wine partners who participated in the sixth edition of this event is the best guarantee of its importance on the gastro stage.
This year wine partners of the "Wine & Friends" event were:
• Korta Katarina
• Kalebic (island of Šolta)
• Marchesi Fumanelli
• Château Les Crostes
• Weingut Schunck
During wine tasting, our guests also enjoyed in some of the autochthonous products from the island, such as olive oil Olynthia Natura and the famous honey of Tvrdić family.
After the leisure afternoon around the open pool under the sunny sky, an exclusive seven-course dinner completed the event, conceived in a way that every dish was crafted by a chef from a different hotel in the Stories group - an association of unique luxury hotels in Croatia, which encompasses carefully selected hotels that inspire with legacy, heritage and warm hospitality on the Croatian Adriatic. In addition, first time in Croatia we had the privledge to taste Rum Pacto Navio as digestif, just perfect ending to royal feast!
This year, with our Martinis Marchi team were the chefs from:
• The Pucić Palace
• Meneghetti Wine Hotel & Winery
• San Rocco Hotel
• Hotel Bastion
• Hotel Adriatic
"We desire to create unique and authentic memories, experiences that blend the beauty of life, enjoying the moment and the intact nature that surrounds us. This desire gave birth to an idea for such an event that all lovers of our somewhat hedonistic Mediterranean life enjoy, no matter where in the world they come from. Just as our guests of the heritage hotel, restaurant, and marina,” said our f&b manager Toni Miloš who was the creator of this dinner concept.
We would like to thank all our partners and guests as together we made this magical day full of wonderful memories!
As the event was sold out in a few days after the announcement we invite you to follow us for future Martinis Marchi events!
We are already looking forward to new adventures that are on horizon.
