St. Martin's Day

11th November 2017 | Zagreb, Croatia

Not that anyone needs an excuse to knock back fine wine, but on 11 November, many of Croatia's towns and villages celebrate St Martin's day in the hillside wine cellars. This ancient tradition is an occasion when many of Croatia's wine makers and their friends celebrate the day when young wines mature into wine fit for drinking. The celebrations date back to pre-Christian times and mark the period when works outside of the home and in the fields would come to an end in preparation for winter.
