Wine Exhibition

Dear winemakers, we invite you to join us again for the 2019 Central Wine Exhibition and present your wines to all the wine lovers, winemakers and visitors who will come and taste them. Only the registered independent winemakers, winegrowing (agricultural) cooperatives, and winemakers’ associations are eligible to participate in the Festival. If you are interested in participating, please register.


Instructions and information for winemakers


The central wine exhibition will be organized at the Sunset Beach in Uvala Lapad in Dubrovnik 26th and 27th of April 2019. The business character of the exhibition is reflected in attracting many wine professionals (retailers, restaurateurs, sommeliers, wine critics, journalists and bloggers) and enabling better communication with the winemakers. The exhibition’s commercial side is related to charging admission and wine tasting and organising wine sales at the exhibition itself. The competition side consists in the fact that the wines will be evaluated before the exhibition by the international wine judges.

All registered independent winemakers, wine (agricultural) cooperatives and associations are eligible for participation at Dubrovnik FestiWine. Registered winemakers who wish to exhibit their wines will be accredited on the basis of participation fee.

Accreditation for winemakers will include the following:

  • Tickets / accreditations for two (2) persons

Admission tickets, coupons and glasses

The winemakers will charge the organiser half of the amount collected on the basis of coupons after the Festival (the value of the coupon is HRK 8,33 including VAT, which means that the amount of HRK 4,17 including VAT is the amount per coupon owed to the winemaker). The recommended amount of wine for tasting with coupons is 3-5 cl. Accredited wine professionals will participate in the exhibition free of charge, and will not be charged for tasting on the basis of coupons.

The deposit must be paid in cash and will be refunded in full upon the return of the glass and submission of the deposit receipt.
