Wine and Food are Our Best Friends

It’s great, that Ljubljana is hosting for 14 years Wine Festival & for 4 years Culinary festival. This year it was held (only) in Grand hotel Union. There were represented 119 wineries, mostly from Slovenia. Organizers counted 3000 visitors in 2 days. I commend this year's presentation of cuisine show, which was fascinating and visitors were able also to taste some of Chefs work.
