Goran Zgrablić – owner and founder

Apart from having a PhD in laser physics, Goran Zgrablić is also a gourmet vagabond and passionate wine lover with a degree from the Italian Sommelier Association. He’s obsessed with homemade local produces and rustic cooking style inherited from his Istrian family. Taking care of his olive grove is his favorite kind of relaxation.

He’s previously lived in Switzerland for five years and currently splits his life between Zagreb and his hometown Pula in Istria.. Goran is author of the Istrian food and wine blog Manjada and a founder of Taste of Croatia – the independent gourmet guide to Croatia – where he mostly writes about Croatian wines and wine regions.
