Experiencing something for the first time can be magical. You go somewhere, not knowing what to expect. Whether you’re a wine lover or not does not matter, because the novelty of a new festival (or a festival in another country) is a big draw for anybody. It gives you the opportunity to meet people, taste wines, and learn about wineries with compelling stories. The previous article from last year already went into detail on Groningen Wijnfestival, and so this text will be from the perspective of a returning wine enthusiast.
Ever heard of a wine festival that was held in a church? As a student, and as young member of the Club of Uncertified Wine Tasters from Arad, Romania, I attended one such event at the end of September 2018.
