Martinje - Feast Day of St. Martin
Each November, when the sweet juice of new wine is born, the town of Momjan celebrates the Feast Day of St. Martin, its patron saint. European traditions consider this Catholic saint to be the patron saint of vintners and wine growers and, in many countries, new wine is “baptised” on this very day.
Momjan, a small historical town north of Buje, is no exception. It is well known among wine and vine authorities.
Momian MTB marathon will take place in Momian, at 11 a.m. on November 15, to celebrate the day of the patron saint of Momian, St. Martin.
Since St. Martin is the patron saint of wine makers and wine growers, young wine is baptised on this day in many countries and regions.
The bicycle ride will start at the entrance to Momian, and participation fee is 40 kuna.
Participants will have lunch in a tent in Momjan, and refreshment will be available throughout the trail. A lottery is scheduled after lunch.
