Osmice - eight days of wine, food and fun

In the Karst region, the two-hundred-year-old tradition of osmice (‘eights’) is alive and kicking today like never before. The permission for wine-growing farmers to have eight days in the year when they can sell their surplus wine, home-made cured pršut ham and other dried meats without paying tax, is the guarantee of a sociable event full of fun. Home-baked bread, potica cake and štruklji dumplings will get you in the right mood. The osmice days take place throughout the year, and along the roads and at crossroads signs for them are fixed to bouquets of ivy.
