The basic idea of this promotion is direct contact of wineries with customers, distributors and restaurant owners, and exchange of information on supply and demand, and their wines in Berlin were presented by wineries Badel 1862, Belje, Dalmacijavino, PZ Vrbnik and Kutjevo. The fact that our wines are becoming more and more recognizable in Germany is supported by the numbers. In 2017, we exported 786 tons worth over 2 million euros, and in the first nine months of 2018 we exceeded exports of 700 tons and reached a value of 1,9 million euros. “I believe that indigenous varieties such as Teran, Pošip or Debit are a key factor for international positioning. Reasonable prices are also an advantage. But consumers need to be made aware, more educated about such events”, Said the presentation leader Suad Zlatić and pointed out that it is important to adapt to the market:”From experience I can say that if a foreigner cannot read č, ž or š, he will not order that wine”. Despite limited production and thus weak exports, Vrbnička žlahtina is well known to the Germans. “We account for only 10 percent of total exports, but we are here for promotion. Croatia is no longer an anonymous country, we are known in sports, tourism, so why not be by wine”, Said Marino Vladić, director of PZ Vrbnik. By branding Croatia as a wine country, we put the wind in the back of wine exports and that is why we insist on wine promotions. It is easy with the Germans, they are our loyal visitors during the tourist season so they have the opportunity not only to try our wines but also to tie memories”, Said Luka Burilović, President of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce. The Croatian Chamber of Commerce in the Berlin restaurant Oxymoron organized a promotional dinner where wines gathered under the brand were presented Vina Croatia – mosaic wines. Luka Zadro, CEO of Dalmacijavina, said that this promotional dinner was an ideal opportunity to negotiate deals with new distributors, given that Dalmacijavina started exporting to Germany only at the end of last year.

I love him to death, but the train keeps moving,” Edelman said Monday. “As it will when I’m not playing here someday. It just always keeps going. So we’ve got to worry about the people that we have here and try to prepare ourselves the best we can with the situation we’re in with everything we’re dealing with.”One of the people that could help ease the transition away from Brady is the arrival of Cam Newton, whom Edelman was able to get a sneak peek at recently when the two got together for an impromptu throwing session shortly before reporting to training camp.Edelman said that first impression was eye-opening.“He’s a specimen, for sure,” Edelman said. “When you first meet him, just his stature. The dude is large, put together well. And he’s got a great energy about himself. I was really impressed with his work ethic and his mindset.”But Edelman was also quick to point out those same attributes could be applied to potential Brady successors Jarrett Stidham and Brian Hoyer as well.He said the offense is safe in any of their hands.“(Hoyer’s) been in the system. You’ve got Stidham, who’s got a year under his belt and you got Cam, who this guy’s a heck of a football player,” Edelman said. “This isn’t his first year playing football. This guy’s a former MVP, he’s played in a lot of big games. So I’ve got a lot of faith in our coaching staff … to try to prepare everyone to the best we can.”Whoever does eventually take Brady’s spot will almost certainly be looking toward Edelman at some point for advice.Not just because he enters his 11th season as New England’s most productive returning receiver, but because Edelman is also the longest-tenured offensive player on the roster.Though, because of the adjustments that will be made to the offense post-Brady, Edelman said he expects to be a student as much as a teacher.“You know, every year there’s always something new,” he said. “I think if I go out and try to lead by example, how to prepare myself with taking care of my body and myself mentally for the day, taking things from the classroom to the walk-through or eventually the practice and just trying to be a professional. That’s the best I can do.”He said finding a way to juggle football with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic will have to be approached as a team.“That’s what this season’s going to be about, not just in overcoming certain situations that everyone’s having to deal with,” Edelman said. “I think we got a long road ahead of us. But if we just keep on bringing our hardhat and lunch pail to work and coming in here with a purpose, it’s usually when good things happen. So that’s what I’m trying to do.”Off the field, Edelman said that he has spoken with DeSean Jackson since he condemned the Eagles receiver over Jackson’s anti-Semitic social media posts last month.Edelman, who is Jewish, offered to accompany Jackson to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., and promised to attend the National Museum of African-American History and Culture with Jackson in return.“I wanted to take a stance to try to help him get through what he had to get through, because we’ve all had some sort of down or some kind of adverse situation that we’ve had to deal with,” Edelman said. “I just wanted to go out and do what I could to not only show that I support my community but also show that I’m here to help people in our league as well.”He said the meeting with Jackson will hopefully happen in the offseason when some of the pandemic restrictions allow for it.“Right now my mind’s at football,” Edelman said. “That was then and those are very important issues. But right now, I’ve got a training camp mindset and my focus is on trying to prepare myself mentally, physically and emotionally for the upcoming year.”Image credits: AP SUBSCRIBE TO US
