We kindly invite you to the city with the oldest vine in the world where each year a traditional annual event happens on the last Friday of August. It is the setting up of the wind rattle; a unique trademark of our vineyards which keeps the Old Vine company all the way to St. Martin’s day.
Friday, 25th August 2017
A traditional ethnographic event takes place in front of the Old Vine House in Lent, Maribor, and is accompanied by indispensable accordion sounds and excellent Styrian wines. After the program has concluded in Lent another wind rattle will be setup on the town hill, The Pyramid.
Join us and together we will listen to the song that the wind rattle will sing to the Old Vine, the oldest vine in the world, while we will symbolically welcome the upcoming autumn and the Old Vine Festival.
"Sunbathing on vines are ripening grapes,
and quietly in the sun they with vitality are filling,
and quietly with noble grace they are filling with the song
that the wind rattles through the hills are trilling".
(Janko Glazer, Autumn poem)
