We invite you to spend the first day of autumn, 23rd of September, in the best possible way – walking through the beautiful autumn panorama of north-west Istria, through the vineyards and olive groves by the sea and to taste the fruits that nature, with the help of diligent hands, offers so generously. We invite you to the first Wine and Walk by the sea!
Spend an entire day in nature during its most beautiful and bountiful time and enjoy the perfect combination of a recreational walk around Novigrad, following roads alongside local vineyards, olive groves and other attractive locations, and an eno-gastronomic experience at several wine & food points, along a nearly 10 km route.
The start is set in the morning hours near Novigrad’s Aminess Maestral Hotel where you will register, receive a tasting glass, voucher, a map of the route and all necessary instructions. You will then start your adventure walking by the sea and the old city walls which will lead you to the town’s little port known as Mandrač, in the historic centre of the town. This is where your first wine & food point awaits you, near a wine cellar that dates back several decades. Here you will be welcomed and provided an introduction for what is to come on this food & wine & walking experience. The stroll continues along the promenade to the hinterland of Novigrad passing through vineyards, olive groves, small forests and other attractive natural sights.
There will be several other wine & food points along the route where you will enjoy wines and bite-sized delicacies. The winemakers whose wines you will taste along the route will greet you at the refreshing stops and this will provide an opportunity to learn more about the top-quality wines you will be enjoying throughout the day.
The return to Novigrad and your final destination in the historical heart of the town, at the beautiful Novigradske biskupije Park, is scheduled some time late in the afternoon or early evening. It is here that the participants and other visitors can expect more eno-gastronomic mingling with wine and food tasting, music, and a fair of local agricultural products and souvenirs. A small raffle is also organised for all the participants. If your lucky number comes up, you will take home a nice memorabilia from this inspirational all-day event, aside from the unique experience of the first Wine & Walk by the sea.
Welcome to the first Wine & Walk by the sea!
