Tourist and recreational event Vivodina Wine and Walk will be held for the first time in Karlovac County. It is a great opportunity to get to know the wine-growing region and local eco gastronomy. Participants can expect a large selection of quality and top wines and enjoy the picturesque landscape of the nature park.
Turistickeprice.hr reports participants of this year’s event will have the opportunity to visit eight wineries through a six-hour walk during which they will be able to enjoy all the delicacies of the Vivodina region. At each of the points, the host will be welcomed and will be able to taste the best wines and discover the secrets of Vivodina wine from the owners of wine cellars. The organizers announced that they will welcome the participants at certain points with additional surprises, especially for those who are coming to Vivodina for the first time.
The beginning of the walk starts from the wine cellar of Josip Vrbanek along the river Kupa which goes uphill to the center of Vivodina. In contrast, the second half of the walk is light intensity and completely downhill. The complete route passes right next to the vineyards and beautiful places of the Vivodina region, located within the Žumberak – Samoborsko Gorje Nature Park. It follows the section on which the World Rally Championship will take place a week later.
Starter packs include a personalized glass, a start number for free wine consumption, a ticket with marked refreshment stations, vouchers for lunch and refreshments at various wine stations, a bottle of water, and a guided tour by expert guides.
“We invite all those interested in securing their place for unforgettable socializing, either with family or their friends,” said the Tourist Board of Karlovac County. If you are coming by highway, the easiest way is to get off the highway in Karlovac and follow the direction of Ozalj. After the old town of Ozalj, the main road leads along the river Kupa, which is located on the right. The beginning of the wine and walk trail is located immediately after crossing the bridge and turning for Vivodina on the right side, where it is also the first stop of this adventure.
After a pleasant time in Vivodina, do not forget to visit other attractions in Karlovac County. You can find more information in the online guide.
