Will it rain or will it not? That was what we were wondering before the start of the second Sweet Wine and Walk. Whatever will be will be, as the saying goes, and since weather cannot be controlled, we were ready with raincoats for our three hundred beloved guests. But, as it turns out, we lucked out. Though the Saturday morning was cold, the clouds soon began to disappear, and the spring day turned into one filled the Momjan region with sunshine. Our wine adventure proceeded in dry weather, and that was the only thing left dry that day!
We tasted the first drop of wine at the Sinković Winery. At the very beginning of our adventure, we were shown that the kindness and accessibility of local winemakers was simply the best. Just like the intoxicating elixirs from their cellars! The tasting hike continued to the Winery Kabola, which delighted us with their Muscat wines, and then we stopped at the Kozlović Winery, where we, among other things, enjoyed a real Istrian menu: local pasta pljukanci with mushrooms and herbs from Vala. A perfect gourmet blend! Of course, at other stops on our way we had the opportunity to taste many local delicacies perfectly paired with the wines offered.
Let’s move on! In the old castle in Momjan, we were received by the Brajkos, a family of wine growers who took part in the Sweet Wine and Walk for the first time this year. The attractive ambience of the castle impressed all the guests at first glance, and it was enhanced by lively Medieval music. There were numerous cool photo opportunities while the focaccia was delicious! Our palates were also rewarded at the next stop, which was Prelac Winery, where Muscats and excellent apple strudel were served.
As Saturday afternoon came to a close, the time for a party came. It was held at Sinković Winery. The band Trio Malvazija created a cheerful atmosphere with their excellent music (and such excellent band name!). There was no lack of dance energy – all the glasses drunk prior to the party notwithstanding.
