Wine, Food and Good Living

22. - 25.10.2015. Messukeskus Helsinki, Expo and Convention Centre.


Why not enjoy life? Hedonism or not Wine, Food and Good Living by Viini Lehti wine magazine is all about enjoying life. Food is an important part of our lives and wine completes the combination of culinary experiences. There’s only little information available about the fair in English. We’re not going to either write a novel about it. The most important thing is if you are interested in food, wines and good living this is an event you don’t want to miss.
