Wine has a special place in Slovenian culture. For proof of this, you need look no further than St Martin's Day, an annual folk festival that celebrates the arrival of new wines on 11 November, when wine fever gives rise to festivities in vineyards across the country, from the Mediterranean to the Hungarian border. Around this date, most restaurants are fully booked and serve specific menus, in which wine plays the starring role. This is just one example of the close ties between gastronomy and viticulture in a country that has a very strong food-loving culture.
