In this episode I chat with Bela Dominković, a Swiss wine expert now residing in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
We talk about the unique wine culture of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the country's potential for wine tourism, the unique characteristics of Bosnian wines, and the challenges faced by local winemakers.
Bela, an experienced sommelier and food & wine pairing expert, shares her knowledge about the local wine scene and her ambition for Bosnia and Herzegovina to become recognised as a quality boutique wine area on the global stage.
