The most popular Food & Wine Festival in Croatia will be held on 23rd and 24th November in Zagreb
The 13th edition of the largest Food & Wine Festival, Vinocom Zagreb will held on Friday and Saturday, 23rd and 24th November, in the Zagreb Esplanade Hotel. More than 300 exhibitors from the region are coming to present wines, food and delicacies.
“This year, we meet for the 13th time, of which 12 times were held in the most elite Zagreb hotel – the Esplanade hotel. The number 13 is not always considered to be a good sign, but I dare now, at least for the exhibitor’s response, to say that here, there is no negative connotation. All the available stands for exhibitors are filled, so during the 13th Vinocom Wine and Food Festival in the Esplanade, you will find the whole Croatian wine and gastronomic offer from Croatia at the palm of your hand!” says Ivan Dropuljić, the organizer of the Vinocom Festival.
The Festival will be open on Friday and Saturday from 11 am to 6 pm, during which time, apart from discovering the best drops and snacks and gathering with the exhibitors, everyone can find inspiration for the holiday season ahead of us.

With which world region could we compare it?
