Welcome to Girl’s Drink Wine Too!!
My name is Diana and I started this blog as I began my WSET (Wine and Spirit Education Trust) Level 2 journey in January 2020. This is an extension of Diana’s Healthy Living, where you can find some wonderful travel advice and some delicious recipes from around the world.
I grew up watching my father make his own wine. It certainly wasn’t an award-winning wine but it was my tata’s (father’s) passion. Both of my parents are from Croatia so wine and winemaking are in our blood. It isn’t unusual to see wine being served to kids on a special occasion during dinner in a Croatian household. Whoah, it’s not what you think! As I child, I frequently drank Gemišt – a popular Croatian drink made of white wine diluted with still or sparkling water. We usually had it with ginger ale. Let’s be honest, it was more ginger ale with a drop of wine.
Wine is more than just grape juice. I love hearing the history of winemaking and the stories behind every winery. Every grape has a story and every winemaker has a story.
I look forward to sharing my wine journey and wine travels with you.
