The event entitled Ljubljana Wine Route (Ljubljanska vinska pot) marks St. Martin's Day, when, according to Slovenian tradition, grape must officially turns to wine. The event includes tastings of young wine and culinary delights served from stalls set up in front of the old city centre's bars and restaurants.
Slovenia is a country of good wines distinguished by their remarkably natural tastes. Ljubljana is not part of a wine-growing region, but due to its tradition as a commercial centre for the country's wine-growing districts it holds the international title of a "City of Vine and Wine".
Ljubljana Wine Route, held annually in Ljubljana city centre, on the banks of the river Ljubljanica, brings together winemakers from all the wine-growing regions of Slovenia. Apart from wines, it also features traditional Slovenian dishes. Wines and food are available to visitors both for tasting and purchase at favourable prices. The event also offers an opportunity to enjoy brass band concerts and folklore shows and thus experience a bit of Slovenia's rich cultural heritage.
In case of bad weather, the market may be cancelled.
