In the colors of tradition...



The feast of the threshing

Our interesting afternoon itinerary will take you to Brtonigla, a village situated on a hill, surrounded by numerous vineyards and olive groves, only 10 minutes away from the sea.

You will travel back in time by visiting and participating in old crafts workshops, during which the hosts will introduce you to the crafts of their grandfathers.

In organised tastings you will be able to try exquisite delicacies from the area of Brtonigla (wine, olive oil, bread from the 4 soils of Brtonigla, honey, cheese...) and get to know the customs and traditions of the area. In the small square, the caterers of Brtonigla will prepare local specialties and explain their preparation methods.

The meals will be prepared in special earthenware, made for the occasion by the skilful members of the Traditional Craft Association from Brtonigla.

The methods of making traditional handicrafts will be presented on the spot as well.
