THE WINEMAKERS of the Small-Carpathian region open their cellars and offer their products to visitors in mid November. Inspired by their Austrian colleagues, the Slovak winemakers, with a tradition of winemaking stretching back more than 2,000 years, started opening their vaults to the public six years ago. Since then, the Day of Open Cellars on the Small-Carpathian Wine Route has grown in popularity. This year 120 wine producers in 20 towns and villages from Bratislava to Modra are joining in the event. They will lure visitors to enter 63 cellars and taste their wines on November 18 between 14:00 and 21:00 and November 19 between 12:00 and 20:00 for Sk800. The ticket also entitles its owner to a wine glass, a map of the cellars, a calendar of wine events and two Sk200 vouchers with which to purchase a bottle or two. For more information or to book tickets call 033/6433-489.
