Wine Festival Groningen
From Friday September 28th through Sunday September 30th the Aa Church will form the backdrop to the third edition of the Wine Festival Groningen – and this one promises to be even better than the first two!
Representatives of various wine shops, wineries and wine importers will be happy to share their expert knowledge with you and pour you a sample glass of their wine. The festival is the ideal opportunity to try a variety of wines. The floral notes of the full-bodied Viognier from the South of France, the crisp and savoury Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand or the robust powerhouse from Priorat. You don’t have to choose: at the Festival you can taste them all! The foodies are in luck too this year. Groningen’s finest restaurants will be there offering delectable dishes and, of course, the cheese platters we all know and love. And when you’ve discovered your favourite wine you can order it directly from the exhibitor.
