In collaboration with Kuopio Wine Festival
Kuopio Wine Festival may just be my favourite of all the summer festivals. Every summer since I can remember food trucks, wine bars, thumping music and laughter have filled the Kuopio harbour area. Each year has a theme, decided upon and announced months in advance. This particular year we got to experience flavours from Asia, paired with delicious wines from across the world.
When the music starts playing, that’s when the wine festival truly starts to come alive. Young and old get into the swing of things, enjoying food and wine and dancing away in the midnight sun. You can’t help but get sucked into the fun.
For supper, we checked out the food market’s wide variety of street food options and feasted with Korean buns filled with Gochujang pork, crunchy vegetables and kimchi mayo, and drank our fair share of fine wine.
The Kuopio Wine Festival is just the right size to feel intimate and friendly, unlike some of the bigger festivals.
The Finnish midnight sun, good food, good wine, great company and unbeatable music. What more could we have asked for?
