Basic information

The people of Međimurje also have their customs and ceremonies concerning winemaking, some of them dating back to ancient times, some even to the time before Christ. One of the very old customs is Vincekovo, or rather the Day of St. Vincent, celebrated in late January, a time marking the beginning of a winegrowing year. Traditionally, people celebrate St.Vincent’s Day in the belief that it will ensure a fruitful year for grapevine, but today the manifestation has been adapted to numerous visitors, lovers of wine and nature. The snowcovered hills of Međimurje create an idyllic atmosphere for a daylong walk during which you are offered choice wines and traditional dishes of the region for sampling at every step, and all in the company of the ever boisterous and joyful local band of mužikaši (musicians).
