“SOLD OUT” has become a symbol of the great event of Istria Wine & Walk in Istria. He bears the title due to the fact that all tickets put up for sale are sold out online within 24 hours. Well, it is a great tourist story and a quality product that is the motive for coming to the destination. Online ticket sales for Istria Wine & Walk started today and it will be interesting to see in how many days or hours 600 tickets will be sold out for this year’s jubilee of this great tourist story. The story is very simple and at least phenomenal. Hard to describe in words or photo and video material, because it simply needs to be experienced. Istria Wine & Walk on this year’s 11-kilometer walk awaits as many as nine top Istrian winemakers and nine local producers and caterers at seven refreshing stops. Every two kilometers, walkers can expect winemakers and local producers who will offer them local indigenous specialties and top wines. I have already written on this topic, read more HERE, and now the fifth edition of the Istria Wine and Walk event has been announced, which will take place on May 18, 2019, starting in Buje, and the question arises as to how many days or hours 600 tickets will be sold out this year. RELATED NEWS: And yes, it is important to point out that these are mostly visitors from Slovenia, Austria, as well as from Croatia. So, people from Zagreb get in the car and come to Istria for the weekend, and in this case the motive for coming is exclusively Wine & Walk. I note that the number of tickets was limited by the organizer to 600 tickets, so as not to create too much crowd, and thus destroy the experience of the whole event, although the interest in this event is much higher. And this is supported by the fact that tickets are sold exclusively online within 24 hours. This year, Oštarija Rondo, Aminess, OPG Radošević, OPG Duniš, All event, Primizia food & wine, Konoba Morgan, Buršić and Veralda are in charge of the gourmet offer, while Kozlović, Franković, Celega, Bassanese, Ravalico, Coronica will offer their wines. Cattunar, Cuj and Veralda. Participants will then visit a lookout point with a view of the peaks of Ćićarija and the sea, and then travel to the Škarlina Nature Park with its unique streams and lakes. On the way, walkers will visit the original exhibition “Friends of Tigor” in the Tigor Gallery and will be greeted by accordion and guitar melodies along the way. The walk ends in Buje at a small fair, with a rich entertainment and music program until late at night, where it will be possible to buy numerous local products as a memento of this unique experience. By the way, Istria Wine & Walk in the past two years has experienced its new great extensions through Wine & Walk by the sea in Novigrad in September, where 500 tickets are available, and in April Sweet Wine & Walk for 300 visitors departing from Momjan.
