Food and wine combination cannot be missing even this year

This year all participating entities will present only the Czech and Moravian wines of local origin made by domestic producers. An inseparable part of the event will be the possibility of not only tasting different culinary specialties but also numerous samples of various wines, just as last year. Visitors can also try a combination of selected wine and food, having greater gastronomic value than the experience of the food or the wine itself.

Guided tasting

The guided tasting will delight you again with fine wine and also the presence of experts in the subject that can talk about wine like no one else and introduce you into the mysteries of proper tasting, wine production and growing.
Due to the great interest in guided tastings in the past year, on-line pre-sales will be available for those interested in that. The exception will be Friday tastings that are included in the ticket price, and therefore can only be booked at the venue of the festival.

The accompanying program

Špilberk Food Festival will be started by a sabrage ceremony, traditionally performed by an expert of renown Janko Martinkovič – the co-owner of KOISHI restaurant.

The accompanying program will run over all the three days and every visitor will have the opportunity to enjoy their favorite show. The following agenda can be a small sample. On Saturday your favourite and always perfect Zdenek Pohlreich will be on the stage for the second time in his Interspar cooking show. You can look forward to the experimental molecular cuisine of Petr Koukolíček or Peter Stadnik’s dedicated presentation how to prepare a lobster even in your kitchen.

Newly also the cooking school

In the past year a culinary studio Divoká vařečka was introduced on the companion program stage. This year you will have the opportunity to attend a cooking school lead by Divoká vařečka. In advance we will only reveal that the subject will be the popular preparation of steaks. Just like for the guided tastings, you will have the opportunity to purchase tickets in an online presale.

Tea and coffee

Even this year we will not omit to introduce the section of coffee and tea where you will again meet your favorite Julius Meinl coffee and newly also Rioba coffee and a Super Premium Coffee Alto Grande. You will taste also a premium range of organic teas Julius Meinl Big Bag Organic including the teas from most renowned tea gardens Idalgashinna, Darjeeling Happy Valley and Jamguri.
