about festival

First Grape and Wine Festival was initiated by
the Heydar Aliyev Foundation in order to expand and support viticulture, as well as domestic winemaking and to increase the export of wine products to the international markets.
Our Grape and Wine Festival is a celebration of winemaking tradition and viticulture heritage of Azerbaijan. It is about a festive atmosphere for those creating wine and those for whom it is created.
