Wines selected through the ‘Asia Wine Trophy’, one of the world’s three largest wine competitions approved by the International Wine Organization (OIV), are distributed with the ‘Daejeon Label’ attached.
At 7 pm on the 26th and 28th, the ‘Wine Culture Night’ event was held at Hanbit Tower Plaza, Daejeon Expo Science Park, where you can enjoy jazz and K-pop performances, adding to the excitement.
