In addition, a "conference" to provide wine information reflecting domestic and foreign wine trends and a "LAN Cable Wine Tasting" that can easily access wine are held, and access is possible through MBC YouTube in Daejeon.

Son Cheol-woong, director of the Culture, Sports and Tourism Bureau of Daejeon City, said, "The 2021 Daejeon International Wine Festival is a festival that marks the first step in recovery to daily life in the With Corona era, and we will do our best to increase the proportion of offline participation and make it a safe festival.“
Marking its 10th anniversary this year, the Daejeon International Wine Festival has become meaningful in terms of international credibility, sustainability, and history of events, and wine selected through the Wine Trophy is a representative urban marketing product distributed around the world under the Daejeon Label.
