Date of event: Daruvar, 12.11.

The celebration of St. Martin’s day is an ancient folk custom of blessing young wine and, according to the Roman Catholic calendar, it is honoured on the 11th of November.

Because this feast has always been all about enjoying young wine, across Europe the tradition of baptizing young wine accompanied by a rich gastro was created.

In Croatia, it is most common in winegrowing regions in the north-west. Vintners and winegrowers in Daruvar organize the central baptizing ceremony at the main town square. During the main ceremony on the town square a rich gastro-eno offer from Daruvar's vintners, Daruvar wine road and others is presented. Also the program is enriched with a cultural-artistic program with folklore societies.
