Old Vine Festival — Maribor, Eastern Slovenia
September 13 - September 22
The Old Vine Festival is taking place in the centre of Maribor (known as Lent) between September 13 and 22. It’s a wine, culinary, and cultural tribute to the oldest vine in the world. You may have heard of this old vine, which makes Mariborians, Styrians and Slovenes proud. It reveals to their visitors a veil of mystery about their extremely rich wine-growing tradition and the success stories of Styrian winemakers.
You will have the opportunity to taste the best Styrian and Slovenian wines at the Old Vine Festival. You will be able to visit the Old Vine House, which is considered as the temple of Slovenian viticultural tradition.
