Experience Brtonigla

Choco & Wine Festival

Passionate chocolate lovers always on the quest for more in the sweet world of chocolate tastes and flavours are invited to the Choco & Wine Fest in Brtonigla, revealing the new trends of pairing chocolate with wine to its visitors. All events will be marked by a profusion of oenological and gastronomic tastes, ranging from premium wines and olive oils to cheese, honey and lavender, paired with the main asset of the festival - chocolate. Brtonigla, host of the festival, is a well-known and recognized oenological destination.  Accounting  for  over  10  percent  of  the  Istrian  wine production, Brtonigla is the first Istrian member of the Città del  vino  (Towns  of Wine)  international  association. The  4th Brtonigla Adventure Trekk, a sports program attracting every year  over  250  participants  from  Italy,  Slovenia  and  Croatia, will also be held in the framework of the festival. This date was purposefully chosen for the race to show that sports and chocolate go together. A variety of workshops teaching decorative drawing with chocolate and wine will be organized, as well as lectures on the effect of chocolate on diet, its application in wellness programs, presentations through different pairings, tastings and a cooking show.
