Martinje - San Martino
Every November, at the time when the sweet juices of young wine are born, Momjan celebrates its patron Saint. Martin. This Catholic saint is considered by European tradition to be the patron saint of winemakers and winegrowers, and new wine is baptized on his day in many countries and regions.
Momjan, a small historic town north of Buje, is no exception to this, very well known among regional connoisseurs of wine and vines. Located not far from the border with Slovenia, Momjan is an oasis of sweet muscat, resulting from centuries of synthesis of ideal soil and climate.
If we add to that that the town and its surroundings hide some of the strongest names in contemporary winemaking in Croatia, which have long been famous for their malvasias and teranes, the true scale and importance of this event becomes clear.
In tastings in wine cellars, guests are presented with a whole palette of wine riches, and they, armed with glasses, taste drops of the top wines of Northwestern Istria.
Celebration of St. Martina also brings Vetra Muscat to Momjano, an international exhibition that attracts dozens of producers of this wine from Istria, Slovenia and Italy. The best are awarded medals and the title of Muscatir, a sign of supreme achievement and great reach in the unique art of muscat.
