With the announcement of the easing of measures, another good news arrived for wine lovers, wine professionals and winemakers.
One of the most anticipated wine events in Croatia - Vinistra - is returning to Poreč. The 27th in a row Vinistra will be held from May 07 to 09 in Poreč, of course all in accordance with the measures and recommendations of the headquarters.
"As we did not hold the traditional En Primeur in Zagreb this year due to epidemiological measures, Vinistra will be an excellent opportunity to present new vintage wines, excellent in all characteristics, especially for red varieties. For us winemakers, the only positive side of 2020 was the exceptional harvest. The last two years have hit the wine and tourism sector hard, so we are really looking forward to this year's event, meeting with our partners, customers and lovers of Istrian wines", Points out Nikola Benvenuti, president of Vinistra, an association of winemakers and winegrowers, and adds that the location and accompanying program will depend on epidemiological measures.
Traditionally, the best overture for Vinistra is the international evaluation of the World of Malvasia, which will be held for the 12th time, from April 12 to 16 at the Parentium Plava Laguna Hotel in Poreč and which breaks records year after year in quality and number of samples.
"The informal world championship of the most famous Istrian variety is being held this year as part of a three-day international evaluation of wine and spirits, which brings together the most famous wine experts from Croatia and the region. Of course, everything will be in line with epidemiological measures because our health and safety come first. The results of the evaluation will usually be made public as part of the 27th Vinistra", Concludes Benvenuti.
