“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.

The Costa Rican Coffee Institute (ICAFÉ) on Tuesday said current estimates indicate the 2014-2015 coffee harvest will be better than the previous season, due mostly to the implementation of better agricultural practices and actions to control rust fungus.ICAFÉ forecast a harvest of 2.1 million bushels (sacks of 46 kilograms) – a 7.25 percent increase over the 1.9 million bushels recorded during the 2013-2014 harvest, which was severely affected by rust fungus on plantations throught the country.“Farmers had better management of their plantations in 2013 and at the start of 2014. They did a better job fertilizing and using mechanisms to prevent diseases, especially rust,” an ICAFÉ report noted.The report states that crop renovation at many farms and a decrease in rainfall this year has benefited farmers in areas that are characterized by early grain maturity.Coffee is Costa Rica’s third most important agricultural export, behind pineapple and bananas. The 2014-2015 harvest starts in November and runs through April.Costa Rican coffee exports in 2013 totaled $301.9 million, a decrease of 26.7 percent from $412.2 million in 2012, mostly due to rust fungus.The fungus and climatic factors caused the loss of about 15 percent of the 2013-2014 harvest, according to ICAFÉ.
