St. Martin’s Day

Yesterday, November 11th, was St. Martin's Day. It's not a holiday but people look forward to it, all across the country, because it means that the young wine from South Moravia is now available. Remember that Brno is the capital of Moravia.
Only the best wines can receive the distinction of "Svatomartinské víno" - St. Martin's wine.

The young wine has a short aging time so it has a light, and slightly acidic taste. But it's easy to drink. However, it does not age well. Hmmm...maybe we should pick some up for Thanksgiving???
