Today is St. Martin's Day, celebrated in both Slovenia and Croatia. November 11th is when mošt, which is prefermented wine, finally turns into true wine. Last night Iva and I checked out a small celebration held at Vinakoper, one of the large wine producers in Slovenia. It was pretty low-key. Live Slovenian music was playing under tents while roasted goose, the traditional fare served on St. Martin's Day, was being served to the patrons. We sampled a few glasses and left shortly after. The muscat was extraordinary, very light and fruity with a clean finish that's reminiscent of tart strawberries and melon.
Usually the celebration is much larger in towns that actually have vineyards, like in Koper or Maribor, but just being around in Ljubljana was fine enough.
