Franjo Toljanic and Mirjana Zelenika, one of the leading Croatian wine producers are planning to start wine exports to China.
According to Croatian media reports, Toljanic and Zelenika will export their wine to the city of Gulin, where they also plan to open a joint branch office.
"We believe we can do a great job in the Chinese market, and that is not just because our products are good and high in quality but also because that market has a lack of wine, especially white wine," an official representative of Toljanic commened.
The Zelenika family’s Source of Life estate at Ilok in the eastern part of Croatia and the Toljanic family’s wine cellar "Gospoja" at Vrbnik on the island of Krk are well-known Croatian wine producers.
Wine producers, who have been cooperating for the past few years, said that exporting to China demanded a lot of hard work but they would succeed.
Toljanic and Zelenika Toljanic plan to export their wine in a limited edition. The first wines to be sent to China will be the quality dry white wine Zlahtina and sparkling wines.
