In preparation for the 17th Annual Vinistra Wine Expo, scheduled for April 29 – May 2, 2010 in Poreč, Croatia, Vinistra – the eponymous association of winemakers and growers of Istria (www.vinistra.com) – announced that it has initiated two new channels of communication through social media networks.
Effective immediately, information about Vinistra activities, events and topics of interest will be shared via a dedicated Facebook page (www.Facebook.com) and on Twitter (www.Twitter.com – @Vinistra).
Vinistra is an association of wine producers and growers whose goal is to promote Istrian wines on the domestic and foreign markets and educate wine consumers about the unique vinous and culinary experiences the region has to offer.
In addition, Vinistra has announced that the 17th Annual Vinistra Wine Expo will be preceded by another international wine competition, “The World of Malvasia”. The World of Malvasia event will be a forum designed to showcase and compare the merits of Istria’s indigenous white wine grape, Malvasia Istriana, and promote its uniqueness as a quality wine grape variety. In addition, producers of other varieties of Malvasia will be invited to exhibit their achievements.
The World of Malvasia competition will be held on April 13, 2010 in Poreč, Croatia and will include panel discussions about the latest trends related to Malvasia production in the world.
