Stavanger Vinfest - wine party

2006 will be the seventh Stavanger Vinfest - or Wine party. It is a celebration of good wine, and the food that complements it so well, with 12 of the best restaurants in Stavanger taking part.
This is not about wine snobbery however, but about enjoyment and good fun. This year Sjøhuset Skagen will host a comedian on the subject of wine, and in 2002 the Valberg tower was dressed up as a wine box.

Sjohuset Skagen is one of the restaurants taking part This is not a festival as such - the events take place within the restaurants and bars that are taking part.
A number of producers from around the world will be in town to talk about their wine, and you will be able to sample for yourself - with glasses as small as 5 cl available, so that you can try different wines without getting lost on the way home.
When: 27 March - 1 April 2006
Where: restaurants in central Stavanger
