This great event is, in fact, a follow-up to a beautiful story modelled after a similar event, “Istria Wine & Walk”, which in turn had been conceived after similar events across Europe: from Bordeaux, Tuscany, Tokaji, all the way to Moldova. What’s especially sweet about this walk is that it is dedicated to one of the most important Istrian grape varieties, the Momjan Muscat. For centuries, the wine obtained from this noble variety has been the source of joy and cheerfulness, making people happier, sometimes even wiser. Some individuals even claim to have muscat visions after drinking it.
The trail was not demanding. After all, a 7km walk in a good company after indulging in delicious Momjan Muscat in one of the five wineries that took part in the event isn’t much of a problem. No sommelier or wine connoisseur finds it hard to describe this precious wine. The playful and flirty scent and the delicious taste of this amazing nectar invigorate your body and soul. Its most important features are its greenish yellow colour and crystal clarity, as well as wine tears that slide down the wall of the glass.
The scent is particularly charming, but the most peculiar thing about it is the sensation of eating freshly picked grapes. Its seductive sweetness is perfectly balanced with its freshness. It lingers in your mouth for a while, it’s extremely harmonious and the aftertaste reminds of vineyard peaches.
