Cohn’s selection of premium wines and Northern California craft beer.B.R. Cohn Winery is a 70-acre multifaceted estate nestled between the Mayacamas range and Sonoma Mountain in the heart of Sonoma Valley. With a winemaking history dating to the 1860s, the vineyard is planted primarily to cabernet sauvignon and benefits from a unique confluence of geological and climatic factors that keep its soils warm, its vines frost-free, and its grapes ripe and flavor-packed. These advantages explain why B.R. Cohn is among Sonoma Valley’s few producers of world-class, single-vineyard cabernet sauvignon. Olive Hill Estate is named after B.R. Cohn’s grove of over 450 Picholine Olive Trees dating back to the mid-1800’s.Passes for the upscale event go on sale this Wednesday, March 28th at 10 a.m. PT.

Šime Klarić, President of the National Association of Family and Small Hotels, said that the encouraging news for all small and family hoteliers was the decision of banks regarding the rescheduling of long-term loans with a moratorium on principal repayment until June 30.06.2021, XNUMX to all tourism companies. “Small hoteliers do not have their own reserves to cover the drop in traffic and large losses in 2020 and until the summer of 2021, when we expect a more serious return of tourists. Therefore, this decision of the banks is of crucial importance for the survival of small hotels, which, in addition to bank funds, have also invested large personal or family funds and property. Along with this decision on long-term loan rescheduling, as well as the existing and expected measures of the Government, it gives us new energy for opening family hotels and quality reception of even the smallest number of guests who are ready to come to Croatia. The attitude of banks that they want to keep the hotel and tourism industry alive and healthy by the summer of 2021 proves that Croatian tourism is a solid cluster in which all stakeholders respect and hold each other and that everyone believes in a bright future for Croatian tourism. It was pointed out at the meeting that a stable banking system in Croatia will play a key role in the economic recovery, so banks are already providing new loans to preserve the liquidity of entrepreneurs in cooperation with domestic and international institutions (HBOR, HAMAG, EIF). In the forthcoming period, banks will continue to strive to provide additional sources of financing and favorable guarantee schemes, so that business entities have sufficient liquidity and the possibility of favorable financing. “During this crisis, banks proved that they are ready to support the Croatian economy and implement economic measures in accordance with the best practices in Europe. We held a meeting with representatives of the tourism sector in order to be able to hear all the proposals and present the programs that banks specifically implement for the sectors and citizens most affected by the epidemic. We are extremely glad that entrepreneurs have recognized the programs and measures of banks, and I believe that with joint efforts and cooperation we will be able to respond to all the challenges that lie ahead. ” he pointed out Director of the Croatian Association of Banks, Zdenko Adrović, Depending on the capabilities and needs of clients, regular interest rates can be settled during the moratorium, according to the existing repayment plan or, which is currently the best option for tourism entrepreneurs, the loan deadline can be extended to match monthly loan installments. inflow dynamics.
