BRDA and WINE 2017
Wine and Culinary Festival
The »Brda in vino« spring festival has a long tradition. A few years ago it was considered mainly a wine event for wine lovers, but in recent years it has evolved. The festival has grown into one of the largest wine and culinary events in Brda. Simply prepared dishes have been replaced by original and sophisticated cuisine that goes hand-in-hand with top quality Brda wines.
The location remains the beautifully preserved medieval village of Šmartno which is in the geographical centre of Brda. More than 25 selected restaurants from Slovenia and neighbouring Italy and almost 40 Brda winemakers will present their offering behind the scenery of the old fort walls. Rich gastronomic offer will be further enriched by providers of boutique products, such as homemade jams, olive oil, lavender products and other artisanal produce.
The new format of the »Brda in vino« festival is now in its fourth year. The local and visiting restaurants will present their dishes, among these also a few new entries: organisers Hiša Marica, Hotel San Martin, Restaurant Turn and Oljčni bar – Hiša kulture from Šmartno, Belica from Medana, Pr'Andreju and Peršolja from Brda, Osteria – gostilna Koršič and Agriturismo Fattore from San Floriano in Collio, Restaurant Park, Peloz and Restaurant Mama from Nova Gorice, Faronika from Tolmin, Monstera bistro Bine Volčič, Al museo iz Gorice, Restaurant Milka from Kranjske Gore, Vila Prešern from Bled, Gostilna Na Gradu, Kaval Group, pastry Lolita and Restaurant Strelec with Igor Jagodic from Ljubljana, Restaurant Cantina Maria from Kranj, Fonda and RIZIBIZI from Portoroz.
