A Regularly Updated Guide

While Piran Café’s wine attention is focused primarily on Slovenia, I’m also more than happy to populate this listing with events taking place elsewhere in the immediate region to produce the largest calendar of its find in this region — for traveling wine explorers, it’s a big assist in helping to plan last-minute travels. (It is for me, anyway.)
For now, “immediate region” includes: northeast Italy (Friuli, Veneto and Alto Adige), Austria, Hungary, Croatia, Bosnia & Hercegovina, Serbia, Montenegro, Macedonia, Romania and Bulgaria.

Are you hosting or organizing an event? Then send along the details, no matter how large or small the event may be. I’ll be happy to add it to the listing to help promote it free of charge.
