The Students Wine Festival at the Graduate School of Viticulture and Enology

The Graduate School of Viticulture and Enology of the University of Nova Gorica will organize the 9th Students Wine Festival on Thursday, 26 May 2016.

The Festival will be held in the premises of the Graduate School of Viticulture and Enology at the Lanthieri Mansion in Vipava. The Festival can be visited at any time after 4:00 PM. At the event, the students of the higher professional Bachelor’s program “Viticulture and Enology” accompanied by the Vipava Queen of Wines Nataše Ferjančič and the Ribolla Queen Katje Erzetič will try their hand in promoting wines, and in the evening they will determine the winner. The Vipava students from the “Lanthierjeve zvezde” team will hold a presentation of their participation in the all-Slovenian “Lidlov mladi vinar” competition, where last year, they won the first place for the production of the “zelen” wine sort.


The Vipava students demonstrated great skills and ingenuity

As part of the 9th Students Wine Festival, the “Lanthierjeve zvezde” team students will also demonstrate their skills. This team won the “Lidlov mladi vinar” competition last year. By means of their hard work, openness to new knowledge and ingenuity, they won the competition, which was also attended by teams from the University of Ljubljana and the University of Maribor.

In the Lanthieri Mansion, the students of the second and third years of the “Viticulture and Enology” Bachelor’s program will expand their knowledge in the field of promotion and marketing of wine, which today is necessary for successful work in the market. At the Students Wine Festival, they will participate as the exhibitors of either domestic wines or wines of the well-known manufacturers.

Visitors can also try a variety of wines from the University of Nova Gorica: Univerzitetno rdeče (University Red), Univerzitetni zelen (University green), Univerzitetni rose (University pink) and Rektorjev izbor (the Rector’s selection).

This year the contest will allow the participating teams to deepen their knowledge in the field of production, quality control and promotion of wine, as well as to gain new experience in the creation of the “from vine to barrel” wine. The Lidl Slovenija Company annually improves the project based on the feedback received and new opportunities. As part of the Festival, the representatives of the Lidl Slovenija Company will tell about what innovations the teams can expect this year.

Welcome to the Festival, where together with students you can taste good wines and listen to amazing stories about this drink!
