Wine, wine, wine! The only festival that missed in our food festival guide was a festival with wine. This March (yes, really soon) we can go to the first edition of Amsterdam Wine festival. Without food the festival is not complete so we can also eat dishes and bites from the places where the wine is coming from. So next to your wine from Australia you can eat kangaroo meat. Nice!

Location: Gashouder
Price: € 12,-.
