The KORTA KATARINA winery

The KORTA KATARINA winery and its villa “Rivijera Orebic´” are a wine lover’s dream. Located in the small town of Orebic´ and perched on the edge of the crystal-clear waters of the Adriatic Sea, KORTA KATARINA’s region is renowned for its culture, sea faring and winemaking traditions that date back to the Roman Empire. For centuries, Croatian family “kortas” (courtyards or gardens in English) were the centre of family gatherings for sea-bound captains and sailors embarking on worldly adventures.

Splash your way out of the sizzling summer heat.

Saturday / 11th

week we present

which produce KORTA KATARINA’s award winning Plavac Mali, Reuben’s Reserve Plavac Mali, Pošip and Rose wines. The rich goldengreenish colour of this Pošip wine makes a great first impression. It’s full bodied character with a pronounced citrusy scent and hints of white stone fruits and meadow flowers enhance this first impression, and its gentle bitterness and fresh taste complete the perfect introduction.

Month

Ante Ante is now in his second season as a member of the Radisson Blu Resort & Spa Dubrovnik Sun Gardens team. When he joined us last year, he started working at the Welcome Gate, but was promoted to the position of Bellboy very shortly afterwards. Last month Ante found some money lying on the ground outside the residences reception, and then made a considerable effort

to find out which of our guests the money could belong to. Happily he found the guest and returned the lost money to them. This is just another example of the high ethical and moral standards Ante possesses. As a result of this effort and the constant praise he receives from guests and colleagues alike, Ante was voted our Host of the month for July.

NATIONAL HOLIDAY

L&P HAIRDRESSER

August 15th – Feast of the Assumption of Mary Of the 13 National holidays in Croatia – 7 are Religious holidays – which is a reflection of more than 13 centuries of Christianity prevailing in the country. Throughout our history many important victories and events have coincided with the date August 15th, and these have all been attributed to Mary – popularly referred to as “Queen of the Croats”.

In the lead up to this holiday, it is now very common for worshippers to walk for up to 2 days to attend services at one of the more than 20 shrines devoted to Mary, dotted all over the country. And after these these spiritual feasts, it is now also very common for bodily ‘feasts’ to follow – with ‘lamb on the spit’ taking pride of place on most tables.

RESIDENCES FOR SALE
