Top class 10-days Wine festival
No true wine lover misses this. Best wines of the world together with most delicious food. At the beginning of autumn. In a sunny side of Alps. Enjoying the long nights by the fresh air from the river.
A must visit event for wine lover
This is the main event around The Oldest Vine in the World. If you really love wine, you have to see it's beauty. And below it, entrance to the vine house with best wines of the world.
It is as well region's greatest ethnographic sight, which symbolises the rich wine culture of Maribor and Slovenia. At the same time this is a starting and finishing point of wine roads, which intertwine the surrounding amazing wine growing district.
The Old Vine Festival is the main event in the cycle of events From Vine to Wine, from pruning to St Martin’s Day celebrations, which in Maribor we prepare in the honour of the Old Vine.
So if you are a true wine lover, this is a must visit event.
So much more for a wine lover
You may stay in town for 10 days and enjoy the rich culture. Or hit the lively wine roads, get lost in hills each day and visit one of top wine producers of the world. They serve best wines together with amazing food. Views from the hills are for free. :)
