Blue Franconian and Blue Franconian festival

Image title

Blue Franconian is the name of the vine variety and the name of the wine. Recently, wine geneticists determined its Slovenian autochthony, but you can find it in the Balkan and most of the Central European countries as well. Blue Franconian grows excellently in Slovenia, especially in our winegrowing region. That is why we have planted 500 Blue Franconian vines in our castle’s vineyard right next to the Sevnica castle. Blue Franconian wine contains a lot of antioxidants and resveratrol, which is why a glass of wine a day is good for your heart and vascular system, although you cannot get it on a medical prescription yet.

Blue Franconian Festival has found its home on the Sevnica castle in 2010. Lovers of high-quality wine can taste the best Slovenian and European Blue Franconian wine included in an international evaluation within the festival. You are kindly invited on the second Thursday in June.
