about the festival
In the variety of continental wine varieties that Styria has to offer, sauvignon is the best suited to Ptuj. Not only because it produces exceptional results in Ptuj. Sauvignon is at once youthful and mature, honest and mysterious in its expression. Like a city that builds its vitality in creativity and the presentation of high culture on the basis of the stories of a thousand years of history.
In the picturesque surroundings of a former Dominican monastery, you'll taste top-quality sauvignons from all the world's most important wine-growing regions. You will also taste exotic wines, especially sauvignons from Slovenia, the surrounding area and nearby wine-growing regions, as well as from Austria, Serbia, Hungary, Romania, Moldova, France and New Zealand. You will enjoy the finest Styrian cuisine, listen to the in-depth reflections of experts on wine and wine culture, and surrender to the silence and music of a charismatic, eight-century-old building that easily conveys the stories of its mysterious life to the attentive listener.
