One of its goals is to produce an authentic sound characteristic for the region its members live in and to create a recognizable Croatian jazz “brand”.
The second part of the program is reserved for the presentation of unusual cooperation of eccentric winemaker, known for playing music to his wines, and Borna Šercar, musician known for playing on bottles. We invite you to taste jazz in wine, wine in jazz, in a blend “Jazz Vibes by Borna Šercar” which was co-created by Domagoj Klasiček from Winery Iuris and Borna Šercar for the occasion of the release of the album “Wagner goes to Hollywood”.
“Jazz Vibes by Borna Šercar” is a limited wine series of 600 bottles which was created through the mutual recognition of music, wine and life philosophy of two virtuosos through friendship and a story that resulted in the first Croatian jazz wine.The winemaker that plays music to his wine and musician who plays on the bottles, created a wine with playful, colorful and harmonious flavor and aroma. It is the wine that is linking Danube, vineyards Erdut, Baranja and Ilok, and philosophy of Borna Šercar’s Jazziana Croatica ensemble, whose creation is based on the transformation of local musical traditions into authentic Croatian jazz sound, into a mosaic.
