Pink Day exceeded expectations of wine and olive oil lovers.
The 6th Pink Day, International Wine Festival powered by WOW (Women on Wine), has brought together many Croatian and foreign producers of pink wines and sparkling wines to Mimara Museum in Zagreb, Croatia, as well as the best producers of extra virgin olive oils that were presented at the Festival – Green in Pink.

As usually at Pink Day, visitors enjoyed the great atmosphere and were looking for an extra ticket. The great interest of the media, workshop availability, as well as a large number of visitors, confirm that Pink Day is not a regular one-day wine festival, but a favorite gathering place and the event for experts, wine lovers and all those who watch the world through the pink box. The wine festival also set high standards this year and once again proved to be an indispensable part of promoting table culture and wine enjoyment, but also as a tourist event.
