Salon Sauvignon kicked-off the festival season in Ptuj

On the first Saturday of May, Ptuj has hosted the 2nd Salon Sauvignon – The art of good living. International Salon of Sauvignon wines took place around the hall of gothic Dominican Monastery About 800 guests could taste just a bit less than 100 Sauvignons from Slovenia, Austria, Croatia, Greece, Serbia and even New Zeland. Romantic ambient of Sončni park (Sunny park, a.n.) in front of the Monastery offered the culinary delights of Štajerska paired perfectly with Sauvignon wines. »The Festiwal of wine, cuisine and art unites the winemakers, restaurants, winelovers and hedonists and connects them with the fine arts,« has told us the organizers at the opening of Exhibition on Ptujska Gora the night before the great event in Ptuj. Salon Sauvignon was only the first festival this season, in the end of June Ptuj will accommodate the Cinema without the Ceiling in the Castle yard, in July Art Stays, international festival of Contemporary art and music festival Arsana will take over the streets. In the last days of August The Days of Poetry and Wine will close the wealthy season of festivals.

We congratulate the board of Salon Sauvignon for the great event in looking forward for the next edition of Salon Sauvignon taking place in Ptuj, May 12 – 13, 2017.
