Košice Wine Festival
12 - 14 SEPTEMBER 2013 / “When Traditional Meets Modern” is the main theme of the seventh Košice Wine Festival, which combines traditional winemaking with modern tasting. Meet the thirty exhibitors presenting the best of Slovak and international wine production at the magical Lower Gate and mysterious Executioner’s Bastion.
The Lower Gate underground archaeological complex and the Executioner’s Bastion will for three days host the Košice Wine Festival. At the Lower Gate, the winemaking will dominate the area on the stage as well as underground, offering wine, cheese and other dishes, presenting wineries as well as restaurants and their famous delicacies. Among the wines from all over the world, a special place will be reserved for Federweisser.
Music, wine and delicious food will fill the Executioner’s Bastion. While tasting various specialities, Italian, French and Moravian wines, together with the products of Slovak wineries and organic wines, you can also enjoy jazz music and live concerts in the evenings.
A €5 wine pass, including the official festival currency vouchers, a glass for tasting and a festival brochure, is a must for every visitor. More vouchers can be purchased at the five ‘banks’ – three at the Lower Gate and two more at the Executioner’s Bastion. Tastings are scheduled for Thursday 18:00 – 22:00 and Friday – Saturday 12:00 – 22:00.
