Wine enthusiasts are moving to Osijek: All is ready for the 5th WINEOS
The biggest wine festival in the eastern part of Croatia, WineOS, will experience its fifth edition this winter. The main promotional event in the wine region of Slavonia and Podunavlje brings many novelties, and, according to organizers – the “Dekanter” association- all is ready for another wine spectacle.
The WineOS 5 will bring a lot of novelty. Certainly, the most important changes are new, more exclusive locations, specifically the restaurant “Muzej Okusa “ (literally translates to “Museum of Taste”), and a new term at the very beginning of the new calendar year. Therefore, this festival will be held on January 11 and 12, 2019.
This, in particular, means that after the end of the holidays and celebrations in the “craziest night”, wine lovers will, after a short break, have the chance to enjoy the best wines of the east of Croatia as well as those of numerous guests from the region and beyond. WineOS will also be a great warm-up for the most important wine date on the calendar, St. Vincent’s Day, which is about ten days later.
Visitors will again be able to enjoy to the wines of the most important wineries from Slavonia and Podunavlje region, those from other Croatian regions as well as those from neighboring countries. In addition to the winemakers, there will also be exhibitors of various delicacies, cured meats, cheeses, schnapps’ and sweets, mostly from our area. Local producers will this year again present themselves to citizens of Osijek and their guests thanks to the help of Osijek – Baranja County.
The festival will also follow a workshop program, which has already sparked the public’s great interest. Indeed, most of the educative lectures, which were re-designed by the famous wine blogger, Željko Garmaz, are already fully reserved. What the organizer is particularly pleased about is the fact that a large number of people from various parts of Croatia and neighboring countries has already booked their seat in them, which shows that both the term and topics are extremely appealing.
Festival tickets are sold at a price of 80 kunas and can already be obtained at the Vinoteca “Vinita” in Strossmayer 21 street. There, you can also buy tickets for the workshops in which there is still room, pricing for which is 50 kuna. The festival will be open for visitors both days from 15 to 21 o’clock.
