our current menu focus: eastern europe
About the focus: Eastern Europe has been making wine since the time of the Celts, before Roman occupation. In the 1940’s under Stalin’s rule the region fell under Communist control and winemaking was handed over to government-run cooperatives, virtually eliminating the fine wine industry. The fall of the Berlin Wall and the dismantling of Yugoslavia in the late 1980’s-early 1990’s gave winemaking back to the people, and the industry began its renewal. Today countries like Austria, Hungary, Slovenia, Croatia, and Georgia are leading the region’s recovery, with Serbia, Macedonia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, and Romania close behind.
