Jaslo Winemakers'  Association 'Vinum pro cultura' was founded in February 2014 on the initiative of winemakers of Jaslo region interested both in spreading and supporting the idea of producing wine of high quality in Jaslo region and in activities aimed at developing and promoting the area through enotourism.

 

The members of the association are owners of vineyards, people from industry fields connected with winemaking as well as distributers of equipment and wine lovers. The association is open to all who notice a chance of development of Jaslo and the nearby region in enotourism seen as the connection of wine and cultural tourism. The full name of the association and especially the part "Vinum pro cultura" accepts the combination of the two spheres- of wine and of extensively understood culture. The Jaslo Winemakers Association  integrates winemakers of Jaslo region and residents of the town. It sets many goals, for example:
