During Wine Week, numerous Dubrovnik restaurateurs and hoteliers mark their locations with red balloons for this special occasion indicating they are “Festiwine Friendly” , offering authentic menus with select wines at promotional prices.
The 6th edition of Dubrovnik FestiWine officially started!
This wine week in Dubrovnik showcases the best of regional wines and hosts many events, professional ones celebrating enology but also events such as Dubrovnik vineyard excursions, wine workshops and lectures, food and wine pairing workshops, guided tastings ...
The purpose of this Festival is to promote wine culture and indigenous wine sorts from the Dubrovnik area. Even though Croatia is recognised in the world as a new wine destination, it has still to secure its place on the world’s wine map despite the fact enology has been an important economic activity through centuries. Original acts in the Dubrovnik Archive bear witness that wine and even singular sorts are mentioned in the state archives of the Dubrovnik Republic as far back as the 14th century.
The high point of the Festival is the FestiWine Gala at the Hotel Dubrovnik Palace and which event is planned months ahead. A team of experts work so that each detail harmoniously blends in with the overall programme of such an exceptional evening. The team leader is the world renowned Slovenian Master Chef Tomaž Kavčič and his partner and host Hotel Bellevue’s Chef Saša Računica. From the first to late moment, the evening is conceived as a performance enriched with creative surprises and amazing concepts of culinary and wine presentations.
