Where: Hotel Habakuk, Maribor, Slovenia

When: 24th October, 2012

What: 5th VinDel 2012 - International Salon of Wines and Delicacy Products Organized by SloVino

VinDel is another great wine event, where wine lovers can taste and see “360 degree view on Slovenian wine world.” On the show there were more than 200 wine exhibitors, of course mainly from all Slovenian wine regions & also from Croatia, Austria, Macedonia, Italy and France. There were also a few producers of so called orange wines. It seems festival in Maribor, is beside guests friendly event (fair price for the producers & entrance ticket for visitors), also important wine market spot. I was also surprised to find some new producers with TOP wines, who were not on the show in previous years. So, another reason to look forward for VinDel 2013, where I am sure it will be again a few surprisings & and confirmation of quality of wines.
