TASTE POSAVJE WEEK 2019/TEDEN OKUSOV POSAVJA 2019
For the first time ever in the Lower Sava Valley region (‘Posavje’ in Slovene), we have prepared a week-long series of events under the collective OKUSI POSAVJA/TASTE POSAVJE brand, which presents the best our region can offer in terms of gastronomy, winemaking and farm produce. Participating under the motto Fresh-Local-Tasty are the Lower Sava Valley’s top-class chefs, winemakers and other providers of food whose common trait is the appreciation of the excellent ingredients produced in the region.
Between 29 August and 7 September 2019, many different events will take place during the Taste Posavje Week, allowing attendees to discover our local gastronomy by offering a broad palette of varied flavours. No fancy words; we simply wish to present the best you can get in the Lower Sava Valley.
In order to showcase Slovenia’s South East in a wider gastronomic sense, the events will focus on various flavours, catering to curious gourmands who may stop by for a visit lasting a couple of hours only, or let themselves be pampered for a day or two in addition to seeing the places of general interest.
Below, you will find the entire programme of the Week’s events and the list of the participating providers, partners and sponsors:
