St. Vincent's Day

The traditional event St. Vincent's Day was held in Erdut on Friday January 19 at the Erdut winery plantation. Croatian vintners worship St. Vincent as their protector and on these days go to their vineyards accompanied by priest, musicians and friends. Our vineyard, the largest in the Republic of Croatia, fits in no single parish. It was blessed by two parish priests, Ante Markić from Aljmaš and Josip Kolesarić from Dalj. The day was exceptionally rainy, but as tradition would have it, if it rains on St. Vincent's day, the wine will flow like water that year.

The blessings were followed by a celebration accompanied with young wines and the band Sanjalice.
