Where Wine Completes Relaxed Lifestyle

Sarajevo, city of many cultures, held an international wine festival with a touch of culinary art. I have to admit: I like it a lot. Atmosphere was so relaxed. Wine festival opened the door at 18:00;  the time when some other festivals around Europe will close for the day. There were some 60 wineries from BiH, Croatia, Slovenia, Serbia, Monte Negro and Italy at the festival; some of them already present at the BiH market. In addition to the wine exhibiting there was a Gastro Show and some other additional shows. One of the highlights of the festival was an opening of Pullus Rhine Riesling 83, which was a vintage of the last century. Mmm, exceptional. High color, almost oily, good taste. Thumbs up. For the party loving visitors there was a number of after parties organized in nearby clubs.

At this festival I was interested in complex, not always straight forward wines.
