Ready to Join?

We will celebrate the arrival of the new wine with a traditional Slovene Martinovanje dinner. This year we will join the Friday Night Drinks group and party together with other Ljubljana internationals. FND is a large group, so we can expect to entirely take over the small restaurant which provided such a great dinner last year. This is a little gem, a short walk from the city centre, set round a garden patio, with an open kitchen.

St. Martin’s day takes place every year on 11th November, and marks the ‘christening’ of the new wine, and the beginning of the natural winter in the agricultural calendar.

The typical fare for Martinovanje is duck, with ‘mlinci’, a flat bread. We will enjoy that and other goodies. For those who want to try the new wine, there will be a selection available.

We have a fixed three course dinner as follows:

Starter plate of homemade beef and venison salami, goat and sheep cheese, olives and cherry tomatoes

Duck breast ‘Barbarie’ with cranberries, red cabbage and Mlinci

Chocolate cake with forest fruits

The price is 20€ per person, excluding drinks and coffee.

A vegetarian option is available.

Please come along, feast on duck, enjoy the new wine, and celebrate this special time of year with old and new friends.

Look forward to seeing you on 11th November.
