European Water Sommelier Assosiation – EWSA

We established EWSA in 2021 with the aim of raising awareness of the impact of water on humans and the connection between water and gastronomy.
With the European Water Sommelier Association program, we are giving water new dimensions by connecting it to the culinary world in various ways.
We have prepared a new recommendation on the quality of bottled water, in which we focus on the values of minerals such as those naturally present in water, highlighting why human body needs them and what their effect is.

We celebrated World Water Day at the Expo 2020 in Dubai

Bled Water Festival took part in Groundwater and climate change roundtable discussion at the Slovenian Pavilion at Expo in Dubai on 22 March 2022 presenting how drinking water affects the human body and how we can identify high quality water according to the purpose of use. For the first time ever, BWF presented a water cocktail Red Goldness to visitors, prepared by Jan Remec. The main ingredient was high quality water with 24-carat gold and natural ingredients such as honey, beetroot, ginger and lime juice. The visitors were welcomed with waters from Slovenia (Donat MG, Dana, Water is Gold) which we paired to food later in the event.
