St. Martin's Feast 2012
Wine Festival in Český Krumlov

Accept our invitation to St. Martin's Feast 2012 - an autumnal celebrations of St. Martin's wines, seasonal gastronomy and friendly encounters.

St. Martin´s Feast St. Martin traditionally arrives on his white horse on the 11th day in November and he brings the first wine of the year with him. This is a fresh and fruity wine which only had a few weeks to mature but has nevertheless managed to acquire its distinctive character. We will first toast with St. Martin's wine on 11 November at 11 hours 11 minutes in Český Krumlov on Svornosti Square. St. Martin's feast can be enjoyed in the company of friends from Sunday 11 November until Sunday 18 November in selected local restaurants serving among others the traditional St. Martin's roast goose (times specified by each restaurant). 

The feast will culminate on Saturday 17 November by a garden wine celebration. It will take place in the Brewery gardens and starting from 2 pm you will be able to sample various St. Martin's wines from Bohemian and Moravian winemakers (over 50 different samples) and try delicious wine pairing of wine with Madeta cheeses and Antoni smoked meet specialties. Your preferred wines may be purchased on the spot directly from the winemakers at discounted prices. You can discuss with the present winemakers who may even reveal some secrets of their wines. A trio of musical bands will complete the pleasant atmosphere in the heated tent - there will be performances by smooth jazz band Season Match, gypsy band Cindži renta and cymbal band Medicimbal.
