Croatia is the home to the Zinfandel grape - a variety thought to be American.  The varietal came to Napa Valley via Croatia and Italy. 

Slovenian wines are very similar to Italian as they are in such close proximity. 

White Wines

Citluk, Herceg White:  made from native grapes (Zilavka, Bena and Krkosija) fresh, summer wine with honeyed finish ($18).

Santomas Malvazija: Hawaii in your mouth!  Passion fruit, mango
 with a sweet freshness that is balanced with enough acid to make it a food or aperitif wine ($20).

Tilia, Modri Pinot:  a Pinot Noir.  A modern, international style of Pinot ($33).

Santomas, Big Red Reserve Grand Cuvee:  blend of Refosk, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.  Deep red-black color with a profusion of berries, licorice, cocoa, cinnamon—a real spice box ($50).
