The key wine and culinary festival in Slovenia in honour of the Oldest Vine in the World. Wine and food, culture and entertainment. The Old Vine Festival is a culinary and cultural tribute to the oldest vine in the world, which grows on Lent, the oldest part of Maribor. The Old Vine is the pride of Maribor, Styria, and Slovenia. For all our visitors, it is the entrance to our extraordinary rich wine tradition and success stories of our winegrowers. From the ceremonial grape harvest of the Old Vine at the beginning of October until the biggest celebration of St. Martin’s Day in Slovenia on 11 November, Styria will yet again celebrate the symbol of Slovenian wine and persistence. We will organise numerous events where we will taste wine, toast with it and simply have a good time. You are most warmly welcome!
