ABOUT THE FESTIVAL


Dubrovnik FestiWine was launched in 2014 as a regional wine festival of Dubrovnik-Neretva County. Its main purpose during the formative years was exclusively the promotion of top quality wines produced from the centuries-old autochthonous grape varieties of Dubrovnik-Neretva County. The wines, which are now globally recognized by the oenologists, researchers, promoters and wine connoisseurs alike, have become the main symbols of the city's tourism. Following a successful period of repositioning and promoting local wines of Dubrovnik-Neretva County, Dubrovnik FestiWine extended their invitation to other Croatian and international winemakers. Every year at the beginning of spring, Dubrovnik hosts a top wine spectacle, which gathers the finest winemakers, sommeliers, enologists and wine promoters from Croatia and Europe.

The central event of the international wine festival is the "Wine Exhibition", where numerous Croatian and European winemakers present their best products to the satisfaction of many wine lovers, who traditionally visit Dubrovnik and FestiWine in April. In addition to the Wine Exhibition, which attracts a large number of fine wine lovers and gourmets, the FestiWine also guarantees a rich off-program, which includes, among others, the "FestiWine Gala" dinner prepared by a renowned team of chefs and sommeliers, Blind Date with Ston Oyster, workshops and lectures held by food and wine professionals, as well as many other events that attract the attention of a large number of wine lovers every year. During the “Dubrovnik Wine Week”, all guests are invited to visit the restaurants, wine bars and cafes with the Wine Friendly sign and taste the best wines of Dubrovnik-Neretva County along with the finest delicacies of the Dubrovnik region. The wines are evaluated by an international panel of judges consisting of renowned wine experts, and led by Bojan Kobal from the very beginning of the festival.

Dear wine lovers,

Dear winemakers,

It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the sixth wine festival of the Dubrovnik-Neretva County, the Dubrovnik FestiWine, which will take place from 22 to 28 April 2019.

Through a number of recognisable Festival events over the past several years, such as Dubrovnik Wine Week, Central Wine Exhibition, FestiWine Trophy, B2B meetings for winemakers and hoteliers, the fundraising FestiWine Gala dinner, and the rich off-programme, we have succeeded in sparking the interest of an ever increasing number of winemakers, tourists and wine lovers to visit the Dubrovnik FestiWine.

The sixth edition of Dubrovnik FestiWine is before us. The Festival has successfully grown into an international festival, and thus earned for itself a new, international recognition. Yet our goal continues to be the same – to stand side by side with renowned wine events of the world and to further promote the importance and special qualities of the viticulture and winemaking of the Dubrovnik-Neretva County.

Welcome to the sixth Dubrovnik FestiWine!

Prefect,

Nikola Dobroslavić
