The Poznan wine fair is a one-of-a-kind event dedicated to this beverage. From March 17th to 19th in the MTP building (pavilion 3) in Poznan attendees will be able to try out and buy different types of wine and cider, learn how they’re made, and partake in a festive dinner.
Wine came to Poland with Christianity, as it was used during masses. The first wineries were located nearby monasteries. The beverage has quickly gained popularity and is still in demand. The Poznan wine fair is an opportunity for wine lovers to get to know Polish winemakers and their products. The entry is ticketed.
