For Brda inhabitants and those who love to visit Brda, grape harvesting is the biggest festival followed by St.Martin’s feast. It is a time when the must turns into wine and when tasters, connoisseurs and lovers of autumn delights, especially wine, are united in a lively company. An excellent glass of wine, good music, rich cultural programme and excellent company. Each year, the St. Martin’s feast is held in the shelter of medieval walls of the fortified village Šmartno. Tasting of high-quality wines of more than 30 winemakers from Brda and Collio take place in wine cellars of abandoned houses.
