Operativ uppdatering från vinverksamheten

Zhoda Investments ("Zhoda") lämnar en operativ uppdatering avseende vinverksamheten belägen i kustregionen Dalmatien i Kroatien.

Det varma vädret med låg nederbörd har inneburit en lägre skörd än tidigare år, men kvaliteten på druvorna är mycket hög och 2020 bedöms kunna ge den bästa årgången i bolagets historia. Att Testaments viner nyligen belönades med flera ädla medaljer i världens största vintävling Decanter är ett fint erkännande för bolagets vinmakare.
