Silvia Vlakancic, Founder
Born and raised on a Croatian island in a traditionally maritime family, Silvia grew to love everything that has to do with the sea.
From cooking on sailing yachts to developing her career as a PR specialist in the B2B yacht-charter world, she now balances her life between New York City, Croatia and the Hamptons.
Combining the best of both (or rather three!) worlds, inspired her to start Anchor & Wine: A travel company that would tailor unique foodie-oriented sailing tours in Croatia, while catering to the most sophisticated customer.
As a genuine wine enthusiast, Silvia obtained the WSET Award in Wine Certification, and is continuing her education in the wine field.
Moving overseas did not mean leaving her love for the Adriatic coast behind; It was an inspiration to bring a unique product into the Croatian yacht-charter industry, one that would combine sailing, fine wine, and gourmet food.
