Svečina Spring Festival 2012
SVEČINA - Maybe my Favorite Wine Event
by milan stojicevic (text & photos)
Where: Svečina, Slovenia
When: 17th, 18th March, 2012
What: Svečina Spring Festival 2012
Number 8 could be my magic number at least when Svecina is concerned. This year again there was 18 wine cellars presenting their wines, and again our team managed to visit and taste wines just from the first 8 winemakers listed below. Also weather was sunny and warm, maybe even warmer then the last year. Wines presented where where in majority vintage 2011, fresh and fruity. Some of then also with potential for much more.
