Varaždin is about to come alive with this year’s Špancirfest, which opens on August 19, 2016. And there will be a feast in store for wine lovers.

During the Špancirfest festival, Varaždin can be described as a town which pulsates like the world in miniature.

Once again, the Wine City at Špancirfest will take you on a journey through wine cellars and magical slopes of numerous vineyards. From 19 to 28 August, the courtyard of the Sermage Palace, Miljenko Stančić Square 3, will bring you a unique wine story, daily from 11 am to 1 am.

The magical atmosphere of the Varaždin street festival is further enhanced with high-quality events that every year delight visitors from all over Europe. The Wine City is a project created by Saša Špiranec, a journalist, publicist, dedicated promoter of local producers, and an authority on wines.

Selected wineries will rule the Wine City for ten days, and these are: Feravino, Belović Skaramuča, Belje, Iločki Podrumi, Krauthaker, Kopjar, Prigora, Vinistra Winemakers Association, Badel 1862, P&F Jerusalem, Mežnarić, Vinolicious, and Vivat.

Visitors will be introduced to the Römerquelle water as well, while snacks will be provided by Vindija and the popular Cheese Bar from Zagreb.

The magical atmosphere of the baroque Sermage Palace, beautiful decorations, educational activities, candlelight atmosphere, clinking of glasses, all this will take visitors on a journey through beautiful Istria, hot and rocky Dalmatia, the gentle slopes of Međimurje, Zagorje and Slovenian hills, and the voyage will continue through the historic French vineyards and wine cellars.

Visitors to the Wine City will have the opportunity to personally meet their favourite winemakers, to taste exceptional wines, and to expand their knowledge during topical tastings that will be hosted by wine experts at the tasting house Vina Croatia Vina Mosaica (Croatian Chamber of Economy).

At the box office at the entrance to the Wine City, you will be able to exchange money for the unique currency of the Wine City, to take your glass and treat yourself with irresistible flavours and unforgettable atmosphere of warm summer evenings. Visitors will be able to taste as many as six exceptional samples and talk with the wine selector, get answers to all their questions about wines, and choose bottles of top winemakers which will be available at special prices.

See you in the Wine City at Špancirfest!
