The event is being organised by Devín’s winemakers association,  the Bratislava Beautification Society and the borough of Devín. Similar celebrations will also take place in the beginning of July and in mid-October. Wines of winemakers from Devín, Bratislava and the Small Carpathians will be available for tasting. The fair will take place in a parking lot at Devín Castle.

Organisers say the event’s main aim is to promote the winery traditions of Devín, which date back to the second century BC, when then inhabitants – Celts – grew grapes and produced wine. Currant wine will also be exhibited, which is becoming more and more popular among local and Small Carpathian winemakers, according to organisers.

Wines will be offered by members of vintner association, which includes members from Devín, Rača, Svätý Jur and elsewhere. Visitors can also have a taste of meals typical for wineries and taverns, and also a choice of Slovak and Dutch cheeses, the organizers said.

Stands are open on Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 till evening, weather permitting. The official opening of the market fair is at 17:00 on Saturday with the presence of Devín’s mayor Ľubica Kolková and a short cultural programme to follow.
